Pantera was an American heavy metal band from Arlington, Texas, formed by the Abbott brothers, Vinnie (drums) and "Diamond" Darrell, as he was then known (guitar), in 1981.[3]. Bassist Rex Brown would join in 1982 and in 1987 Phil Anselmo would become the group's lead vocalist, completing the band's most successful lineup that would remain together for 16 years.

Although initially influenced by 1980s glam metal bands such as Kiss and Van Halen, Pantera's style would change by the late '80s, showing a greater influence from thrash metal acts such as Slayer, Exodus and Metallica, as well as traditional metal bands such as Black Sabbath and Judas Priest. Pantera subsequently became a key formulator of the post-thrash subgenre of "groove" metal. It would not be until nine years after forming that Pantera saw its first piece of commercial success in its 1990 major label debut, Cowboys from Hell.

Despite the generally cold reception of the band's first four albums from the 1980s, critics have lauded Pantera's style thereafter; Jason Birchmeier of Allmusic.com states that "there was no greater metal band during the early to mid-'90s than Pantera."[1] The band has received accolades such as ranking 45th on VH1's list of the "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock"[4] and fifth on MTV's "Top 10 Greatest Heavy Metal Bands of All-Time."[5] The All Music Guide (AMG) is a large, comprehensive and high quality metadata database about music. ...

Pantera began to suffer from mounting tensions between band members in the mid-1990s, largely due to Phil Anselmo's rampant drug abuse.[2] Anselmo, having been nagged by a painful back injury for several years, explored the option of corrective surgery, however he was not comfortable with having to take an extended break from Pantera to recover, which could have taken up to a year.[2] Instead, Anselmo began using heroin as a painkiller and as a result his behavior became erratic and volatile, his performances suffered and he began to distance himself from his bandmates, who were initially unaware of his addiction.

In 2001, the band went on hiatus and was never able to successfully reunite, with the Abbott brothers unable to communicate with Anselmo, who was immersed in several side-projects, chiefly Down and Superjoint Ritual.[2] Pantera officially disbanded in 2003 and a war of words ensued, with Phil and Vinnie Paul trading inflammatory comments and blaming one another for the break-up of Pantera via the media.[2] Any hope of the band members ever reconciling their differences and possibly reuniting was lost in 2004, when "Dimebag" Darrell (as he had been known since the mid-1990s) was shot and killed on-stage while performing with his and his brother's new band, Damageplan.

Pantera formed in 1981 with its original line-up consisting of drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, his younger brother, guitarist Darrell Abbott (then known as "Diamond Darrell"), bassist Tommy Bradford, guitarist Terry Glaze and vocalist Donnie Hart.[3] At its conception, the members of Pantera were in 11th grade.[3] They began performing Kiss and Van Halen covers as well as original material in the glam metal vein in Texas nightclubs. Along with adopting the glam metal sound, the band members frequently performed in spandex and teased-up hair, a common appearance in the glam metal scene.

In 1982, Hart left the band and Glaze became the group's vocalist, leaving Darrell as the sole guitarist. Later that year Bradford also departed and was replaced by Rex Brown (then known as "Rexx Rocker"). Pantera became an underground favorite, though its regional tours in this era never took them past Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. The band began supporting fellow heavy metal acts such as Stryper, Dokken, and Quiet Riot, who in turn promoted Pantera's debut, Metal Magic. Metal Magic was released on the band's record label with the same name in 1983 and produced by the Abbott brothers' father, Jerry Abbott (referred to as "The Eldn"), at Pantego Studios.[3] Rex Robert Brown (born July 27, 1964 in Graham, Texas) is a bassist, best known for his work with the American heavy metal band Pantera from the time the band formed in the early 80s until its dissolution in 2003. ...

The following year, Pantera released its second album, Projects in the Jungle. Though still very much a glam metal album, the band members crafted songs that had less overbearing melodic influences than songs from Metal Magic. Another change was Terry Glaze's name, as he was henceforth credited as "Terrence Lee." In addition, a music video for the album's lead track, "All Over Tonight," was eventually created. Projects in the Jungle was also released on the independent Metal Magic Records label and produced by Jerry Abbott.

In 1985, Pantera again released a full-length album with Metal Magic Records, entitled I Am the Night. As with Projects in the Jungle, this album saw Pantera's sound becoming heavier (though still rooted in glam metal), and the heavy metal press took more notice of the band. Because of poor distribution, I Am the Night was a costly album to many fans. Around 25,000 copies of I Am the Night were sold. Pantera's second music video was produced for the track "Hot and Heavy." I Am The Night is a glam metal album by heavy metal band Pantera, released in 1985 (see 1985 in music). ...

1986 saw the release of several landmark thrash metal albums that would prove influential to Pantera's developing musical style. Among the most prominent of these were Slayer's Reign in Blood, Megadeth's Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? and Metallica's Master of Puppets.[2] Terrence Lee's glam approach did not fit the band's new outlook and he and the other members parted ways, beginning the search for his replacement.

The band went through temporary vocalists Matt L'Amour and David Peacock before eventually discovering New Orleans native Phil Anselmo in 1987. Anselmo had previously been the vocalist for the bands Samhain[3] (not to be confused with Glenn Danzig's band of the same name) and Razorwhite. Upon playing with Pantera, Anselmo immediately clicked with the other three members. With the search over, the band members decided to seriously reconsider their glam metal sound and image. Referring to the band's spandex appearance, Vinnie Paul remarked at a band meeting that "These magic clothes don't play music; We do. Let's just go out there and be comfortable—jeans, t-shirt, whatever—and see where it goes."[2] David Peacock is a former lead singer of the Heavy Metal band, Pantera. ... NOLA redirects here. ...

More than just the band's image was changing, however. In 1988, Pantera released its first album with Anselmo, entitled Power Metal. By far the band's heaviest album at this point, Power Metal was a mix of 1980s hard rock and thrash metal, sometimes blending both styles in a single song. Complementing the band's new sonic approach was Anselmo's harder-edged vocals compared to those of Terrence Lee. Power Metal is a power metal album by heavy metal band Pantera, released in 1988 (see 1988 in music). ...


As with the previous three '80s albums, Power Metal was released on Metal Magic Records. Power Metal began to reflect the characteristic sound of later Pantera, though it still contained many elements of 1980s glam metal. The band members would later ignore their independent releases, including Power Metal, as they sculpted a new, heavier image to accompany their developing "groove" sound. Their four independent albums are not listed on the band's official Web site and have become hard-to-find collector's items.

Shortly after Power Metal was released, "Diamond Darrell," as he was then known, auditioned for Megadeth's vacant guitarist slot, and was invited to join the band. Darrell insisted his brother, bandmate Vinnie Paul, be included, but because Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine had already hired a drummer, Nick Menza, Darrell declined and Mustaine instead decided on Marty Friedman.

After being turned down "28 times by every major label on the face of the Earth,"[6] Atco Records representative Mark Ross saw the band perform after Hurricane Hugo stranded him in Texas.

Released on July 24, 1990, Cowboys from Hell was another leap into heavier territory. Pantera showed a more extreme style on this outing, leaving behind its glam metal influences in favor of an amalgamation of thrash metal and groove metal dubbed "power groove" by the band. Although Anselmo still used Rob Halford-influenced falsetto vocals, he also adopted a more abrasive delivery. Darrell's more complex guitar solos and riffs, along with his brother's faster-paced drumwork were evidence of the band's extreme transformation. The album marked a critical juncture in the band's history. Most fans, as well with the band itself, consider it Pantera's "official" debut.[1] Cowboys included the popular tracks "Cemetery Gates," a brooding seven-minute piece that focuses on death and religion, and the thrashing title track, which gave the band members their nickname and asserted their raucous personality and style.

So began the Cowboys from Hell tour alongside thrash act Exodus and hardcore punk band Suicidal Tendencies. In 1991, Rob Halford performed with the band onstage, which led Pantera to open for Judas Priest on its first show in Europe. The band eventually landed a billing for "Monsters in Moscow" with AC/DC and Metallica, where they played to a crowd of over 500,000 in celebration of the new freedom of performing Western music in the former Soviet Union shortly after its collapse in 1991.

Pantera's unique "groove" style came to fruition in its breakthrough album Vulgar Display of Power, released on February 25, 1992, which saw the replacement of the power metal falsetto vocals with a hardcore-influenced shouted delivery and heavier guitar sound. While some critics point to the rise of grunge music as the subsequent downfall of glam metal, others cite Pantera, most notably on Vulgar Display, as being the catalyst that overpowered popular '80s metal. Among critics and fans, it is frequently cited as the band's best effort.[6] Songs like "Fucking Hostile", a fast, aggressive challenge to authority, the riff-driven "Walk", and "Mouth for War", remain some of the most popular songs in Pantera's catalog. Two other singles from the album became two of Pantera's best-known ballads: "This Love", a haunting piece about lust and abuse, and "Hollow", somewhat reminiscent of "Cemetery Gates" from Cowboys. "Hollow" was recognizable for its popularity at live performances. The band would play the song "Domination" (from Cowboys) leading into the ending of "Hollow" (what is roughly the last 2:30 of the album version), forming a medley referred to as "Dom/Hollow,"[7] as can be heard on the band's 1997 live album. Singles from Vulgar also received significant airplay on radio and their music videos on MTV. The album entered the American charts at #44.

Also in 1992, Pantera again collaborated with Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford and cut the track "Light Comes Out of Black" for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer soundtrack. Halford took over main vocalist duties on the track, with Anselmo providing backing vocals. After the collaboration, Pantera hit the road again, visiting Japan for the first time in July of 1992 and later performing at the "Monsters of Rock" festival co-headlined by Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath in Italy.

The extent to which Vulgar Display of Power grew in popularity can be assessed by the instant success of its follow-up, Far Beyond Driven (released on March 15, 1994), which debuted at #1 in both U.S. and Australian album charts, the first metal album to do so. The album's first single, "I'm Broken", earned the band's first Grammy nomination for "Best Metal Performance" in 1995.

Pantera hit the road again and toured South America, along with being accepted into another "Monsters of Rock" billing. At that festival on June 4, 1994, the Abbott brothers got into a scuffle with journalists from the music magazine Kerrang! over unflattering cartoon depictions of drummer Vinnie Paul. Pantera continued their tour of the United Kingdom and eventually ended it in the United States where the band was opened for by fellow groove metal band Prong.

Band tension and The Great Southern Trendkill (1994–1996)

According to the Abbott brothers, frontman Phil Anselmo began behaving strangely and distanced himself from the band when they returned to the road in 1995. The rest of the band members first thought that Pantera's fame had gotten to Anselmo, but Anselmo cited back pain from years of intense performances as the reason for his erratic behavior. Anselmo attempted to subdue his pain through alcohol, but this, as he admits, was affecting his performances and "putting some worry into the band."[2] Doctors predicted that with surgery, Anselmo's back problem could be corrected, but that the recovery time could be a year or more. Not wanting to spend that much time away from the band, Anselmo refused, and began using heroin as a painkiller. For other uses, see Heroin (disambiguation). ...


Anselmo's on-stage remarks became notorious during this time. After stating at a Montreal concert that "rap music advocates the killing of white people," Anselmo denied accusations of racism, and later issued an apology,[8] stating that he was drunk and that his remarks were a mistake.[3] Nickname: Motto: Concordia Salus (well-being through harmony) Coordinates: , Country Province Region Montréal Founded 1642 Established 1832 Government  - Mayor Gérald Tremblay Area [1][2][3]  - City 365. ...


In 1995 Anselmo also began the first of numerous side projects called Down. Down was a supergroup consisting of Anselmo on vocals, Corrosion of Conformity's Pepper Keenan and Crowbar's Kirk Windstein on guitars, Jimmy Bower (also of Crowbar, as well as Eyehategod) on drums, and Todd Strange (also of Crowbar) on bass. Down's first album, NOLA, was released on September 19, 1995. Pantera's own Rex Brown would replace Strange in 1999 and played bass on the group's subsequent releases, 2002's A Bustle in Your Hedgerow, named after a famous line from Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven," and 2007's Over the Under.

Problems listening to the file? See media help.

Pantera's next album, The Great Southern Trendkill (released on May 22, 1996), came out during grunge rock's dominance and at the onset of rap metal. It is often considered Pantera's "overlooked" album.[6] Phil Anselmo recorded the vocals for this release in Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor's studio in New Orleans while the rest of the band members recorded in Dallas, evidence of the continued distancing between Anselmo and the rest of the band. In comparison to the band's previous efforts, there was a heavier emphasis on vocal overdubbing in a somewhat "demonic" fashion. Drug abuse is a popular theme in Trendkill, as exemplified by tracks such as "Suicide Note Pt. I," "Suicide Note Pt. II" and "Living Through Me (Hell's Wrath)." Perhaps the most popular song from Trendkill is "Drag the Waters", which advises the listener to take the motives of others with a grain of salt. "Drag the Waters" became the album's only music video, and likewise, the only track from the album to appear on the band's compilation album. Another Trendkill single, "Floods", achieved acclaim largely because of Darrell's epic guitar solo in the song, which ranked #19 on Guitar World magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitar Solos" of all-time.[9] Drag the Waters is a popular heavy metal song by Pantera. ...

On July 13, 1996, Anselmo overdosed on heroin an hour after a Texas homecoming gig. After his heart stopped beating for almost five minutes, paramedics gave Anselmo a shot of adrenaline and sent him to the hospital. After waking up in the hospital, the nurse working in his room said "Welcome back to life, you overdosed on heroin." Anselmo apologized to his bandmates the next night, but this did nothing to stop the increasing doubt within the band. The revelation of heroin use came as a shock to Vinnie and Darrell who were embarrassed by Anselmo's actions, according to Rita Haney, the guitarist's girlfriend. Anselmo says he would relapse two more times and guilt overcame him.[2] Image File history File links Pantera1997. ...

Some of the band's live performances were eventually compiled in its July 29, 1997 release, Official Live: 101 Proof, which included fourteen live tracks and two new studio recordings: "Where You Come From" and "I Can't Hide". Two weeks before the live album's release, Pantera received its first platinum album, for Cowboys from Hell. Just four months later, both Vulgar Display of Power and Far Beyond Driven went platinum as well.[10] The band also received their second and third "Best Metal Performance" Grammy Nominations for Trendkill's "Suicide Note (Pt.

Around this time, Anselmo ventured into more side projects, such as playing guitars on Necrophagia's 1999 release Holocausto de la Morte, where he went as the alias "Anton Crowley", which combines the names of Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey and famous occultist Aleister Crowley. He also temporarily joined the black metal supergroup Eibon and contributed to that band's 2000 release. Another one of Anselmo's "Anton Crowley" projects was black metal band Viking Crown.

The band once again returned to touring and visited the United States, Canada, South Korea, Australia, and Europe. The tour in Europe was cut short, however, due to the September 11, 2001 attacks. This would be the last time the members of Pantera performed together. Back home, the band planned to release its fourth home video in Summer 2002 and record another studio album later that year, but neither came about.[11] Anselmo again engaged in numerous side projects: in March of 2002, Down released it's second studio album, Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow followed in May of that year by Superjoint Ritual's debut, Use Once and Destroy. Vinnie Paul claims that Anselmo told him he would take a year off following the events of September 11, but Anselmo's touring and record output for both Superjoint Ritual and Down contradicted this. The Abbott brothers were frustrated, and held out for a time, assuming Anselmo would return. However, according to Anselmo, taking a break from Pantera was a "mutual thing" between each of the band members.[12] A sequential look at United Flight 175 crashing into the south tower of the World Trade Center The September 11, 2001 attacks (often referred to as 9/11—pronounced nine eleven or nine one one) consisted of a series of coordinated terrorist[1] suicide attacks upon the United States, predominantly...

The band officially broke up in 2003, also the year when their "Best of:" compilation album was released (on September 23), when the Abbott brothers concluded that Anselmo had abandoned Pantera and would not return. Both Anselmo and Brown were supposed to have met Dime and Vinnie in New York, and never showed up.[citation needed] This is when the Abbott brothers realized the band was truly over.[citation needed] The break-up of the band was not amicable and subsequently a war between the former bandmates was waged via the heavy metal and musical press. The Abbott brothers and Pantera crew members claimed that they tried numerous times to contact Anselmo over the phone to reorganize Pantera, but Anselmo maintains that they never called him. Caught up in the torrent was Rex Brown, who later said "It was a bunch of he said, she said nonsense that was going on, and I wasn't going to get in the middle of it."[2] Anselmo's comment in a 2004 issue of Metal Hammer magazine saying that "Dimebag deserves to be beaten severely" typified Pantera's internal conflicts; Anselmo insists that this comment was tongue-in-cheek.[2] This explanation was soon dismissed by Vinnie Paul, who said shortly after the 2004 murder of his brother that he had personally listened to the audio files of the interview and that Anselmo had not been misquoted or misrepresented, but said the exact words which appeared in the article.[2] See also: 2003 in music (UK) Musical groups established in 2003 Record labels established in 2003 // January - following an investigation by The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry and London detectives, police raids in England and the Netherlands recover nearly 500 original Beatles studio tapes, recorded during the Let It...

The album was a commercial success; over 44,000 copies were sold in its first week alone and within a year over 100,000 copies were sold.

The following week Anselmo flew to Dallas to attend Dimebag's funeral and waited five days in a hotel room for a response from Vinnie Paul. Anselmo says he called the drummer and anyone else he could get a hold of several times. Rita Haney, Darrell's girlfriend, finally answered one of Anselmo's calls and said she would "blow [Anselmo's] head off" if he attended.[2]


Public comments made by Phil Anselmo following the shooting suggested that he had considered reuniting with the band prior to Darrell's death.[14] However, one year after the murder Vinnie stated in an interview that this reunion was never going to happen.[15]


On May 11, 2006, the VH1 Behind the Music episode on Pantera premiered.

Personality and influences

Pantera has toured with Ozzfest as main stage acts twice; the band played at the second annual Ozzfest in 1997 and the fifth Ozzfest in 2000. Over the course of their career, Pantera's members became known for their excessive partying and debauchery, even acquiring an official drink called the "Black Tooth Grin". The "Black Tooth Grin" ("Black Tooth," "The Grin," or "BTG," alternatively), named after lyrics from Megadeth's "Sweating Bullets", is a mixture of Crown Royal or Seagram 7 whisky (or both) and Coca-Cola.

Pantera also adopted a self-described "take no shit" attitude, epitomized in its popular song "5 Minutes Alone" from the album Far Beyond Driven. According to Vinnie Paul, the song originated when, during a show in San Diego, California, Anselmo was annoyed by a heckler and encouraged the crowd to "jump [his] ass and beat the shit out of him on the spot." Consequently, the band was sued; the man's father took action and called Pantera's manager, saying, "You just give me five minutes alone with that Phil Anselmo guy and I'll show him who's big daddy around here," to which Anselmo responded, "You just give me five minutes alone with that cat's dad and I'll whoop his ass."[6] 5 Minutes Alone is a song by the heavy metal group Pantera from the 1994 album Far Beyond Driven. ...

Aside from their thrash metal influences, the band members cite heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath as one of their favorite bands. As a tribute, Pantera has recorded three different covers of Black Sabbath songs (all from the Ozzy Osbourne era). The first was "Planet Caravan", a slower, quieter song planned for the first Sabbath tribute album, Nativity in Black, that eventually became the final track on Far Beyond Driven. The band performed Sabbath's "Electric Funeral" on the second Nativity in Black. A previously unreleased cover of Sabbath's "Hole in the Sky" was included on the band's 2003 compilation album, The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys' Vulgar Hits!. Pantera's affinity for Black Sabbath is also shown through the lyrics, "Your trust is in whiskey and weed and Black Sabbath," in "Goddamn Electric". The same song also mentions Slayer, one of the band's thrash metal influences.

Criticism

Exhorder

Pantera has come under criticism within the heavy metal world in relation to New Orleans thrash metal band Exhorder. Some fans have accused Pantera of stealing from Exhorder the groove metal sound for which it became famous. While Pantera's style change on Cowboys from Hell was released before Exhorder's debut, Slaughter in the Vatican, Exhorder self-released two demos in the late 1980s (around the time that Pantera was still playing glam metal) that a number of fans believe to be the real birth of the musical style Pantera popularized. Thrash metal is a subgenre of heavy metal music, one of the extreme metal subgenres that is characterised by high speed riffing and aggression. ... Exhorder was a thrash metal and then groove metal band formed in New Orleans, Louisiana during the late 1980s. ... For other uses, see demo. ... Glam metal is a sub-genre of heavy metal music that arose in the late 1970s - early 1980s in the United States. ...


The All Music Guide points to several elements of Exhorder's debut that could potentially explain its lack of success in relation to Pantera. In disagreement with the opinion that Exhorder is "Pantera minus the good songs," AMG's review of Slaughter in the Vatican expresses that "perhaps a more accurate billing would be to call them Pantera without the major label backing." They also point to the fact that the title of Exhorder's debut, along with the unsubtle album cover, "certainly didn't help [its] cause any."[17]


However, some fans and critics dispute any notion that Pantera "stole" Exhorder's sound. Brian Davis, a contributor to Internet radio station KNAC, addresses the issue as follows: Internet radio (aka e-Radio) is an audio broadcasting service transmitted via the Internet. ... KNAC is an internet based heavy metal music radio station that pays tribute to a former United States, Los Angeles, California area FM radio station. ...

Exhorder's main "claim to fame" is the common opinion that they're the band that Pantera stole their sound from. That's total bullshit. There are minor similarities in guitar style, and on occasion, vocalist Kyle Thomas spits out a line or scream that will bring Pantera to mind, but to go so far as to say that Pantera is an Exhorder clone is ludicrous.[18]

Despite originally decrying Pantera as a rip-off to their sound, former lead vocalist of Exhorder, Kyle Thomas, has stated that he does not care about any of the criticism and is sick of seeing Exhorder's name tied to Pantera's. He also stated that he and the members of Pantera were great friends who used to tour together, and that he mourns the loss of Dimebag Darrell.[19][20] Recently, Thomas suggested that while it is possible Pantera may have ripped Exhorder off and was definitely influenced by his band, the members of Pantera "work[ed] a ... lot harder than [they] did."[21]


Dave Mustaine

Pantera also received criticism from Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, who told MTV in 1994: Megadeth is an American thrash metal band led by founder, frontman, guitarist, and songwriter Dave Mustaine. ... Dave Mustaine (born David Scott Mustaine, September 13, 1961 in La Mesa, California, United States) is the lead/rhythm guitarist, songwriter, and singer for the speed/thrash metal band Megadeth. ... This article is about the original U.S. music television channel. ...

When I got together with James [Hetfield of Metallica], he and I created a guitar style that everybody and their brother is playing now, everyone. I'm not gonna name anybody 'cause I'm not gonna promote them. OK, we'll say 'panther' in Spanish. You're welcome guys. We might as well be cooking their dinner for them or pushing their little wheelbarrow to the bank for them.[22] James Alan Hetfield (born 3 August 1963, Downey, California[1]) is the main songwriter (with drummer Lars Ulrich and sometimes guitarist Kirk Hammett), co-founder, vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the American thrash/heavy metal band Metallica. ... Metallica is a Grammy Award-winning American heavy metal/thrash metal band formed in 1981[1] and has become one of the most commercially successful musical acts of recent decades. ...

However, Mustaine may have put these ill feelings to rest, as he has posthumously expressed his admiration for "Dimebag Darrell," saying:

"I knew ["Dimebag"] by wanting to play with him. We had Pantera open for Megadeth in the U.S. and in Europe. When you get to the level of guitar playing that I'm at and that he was at, the air is pretty thin up there...Darrell was a really gentle spirit and pretty easygoing guy."[23]

and

...Knowing he was murdered tonight, I wish to thank and remember Darrell for his amazing life and the gift that he shared with me and so many other fortunates. I pray for Darrell's family and friends; specifically for their healing, their peace and their understanding of this tragedy in this time of need. I send my deepest heartfelt condolences to the Abbott family, to Darrell's friends, and to the fantastic Pantera and Damageplan fans around the world. We must never forget his life, and his gifts, his genius, his terrific personality, and the legacy he left behind to remember him by. Darrell, I will see you in heaven and I, like so many more, love you brother. You will be missed.[24] Damageplan (originally New Found Power) was a US-American heavy metal band, showcasing the groove metal sound that was demonstrated by guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott and drummer Vinnie Paul while playing in Pantera, most notably on the Vulgar Display of Power album. ...

Mustaine also paid tribute to Darrell at a 2005 Gigantour show in the Abbott brother's hometown of Dallas, Texas as he joined Dream Theater, Russell Allen (of Symphony X) and Burton C. Bell (of Fear Factory) on stage for a rendition of "Cemetery Gates" for which Mustaine played the song's guitar solo.[25] A Gigantour 2005 web banner, before Anthrax was announced to join the festival. ...

The final nail in Pantera's coffin came during the early to mid-2000s, when Anselmo began engaging himself in a multitude of side projects and when, very sadly, guitarist Dimebag Darrell was bizarrely murdered on-stage in late 2004.
This much-publicized murder shone the spotlight back on Pantera for a brief moment, and amid all of the emotional outpours and media commentary, a consensus arose: Pantera had indeed been a landmark band, somewhat undervalued during their reign, with practically every contemporary metal band of the time openly paying tribute to their legacy.
Pantera did reunite, however -- one last time -- for Reinventing the Steel, which was released in 2000 and, like The Great Southern Trendkill, didn't come close to matching the impact of Far Beyond Driven.
