The band Pantera is much more than a metal band. They are a group of kick-ass hard core rockers playing harsh cords and razor lyrics for their fans hearing pleasure. The band consists of Philip Anselmo, Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown. . Pantera is a kick-ass band that many would say never once sold out to be the next big sensation. They're brutally honest, they're bad asses and could completely careless about what others (excluding the fans) think of them. With all the changes in music over the years, Pantera never blinked and eye because they knew with songs like Reinventing the Steel they would be here to stay. Pantera's incredible rise to the top of the metal heap has been nothing short of miraculous when you consider they've made their historic climb with virtually no radio support or MTV exposure. With 4 platinum albums under their belt, 3 gold home videos and 2 Grammy nominations, Pantera are just beginning to garner the recognition they deserve. They even still sell out shows after all these years. That's what makes them lengendary, their fuckin' kick ass!
Pantera has a unique brand of metal has truly stood the test of time. With every album and each tour, they seem to get better and better as if they were not already metal masters. The band has even been able to grow an extremely strong fan base of die-hard metal fans without major television or radio play. To them it was more about the music and staying true to the fans. The band continues to tour relentlessly and they possess a fierce dedication to their fans. This has inoculated them against the usual trappings that have brought down other metal bands. This fact within itself makes them the standard-bearers for integrity minded rock. We salute you for this rare quality.
