iTunes Editors’ Notes

Heavy metal was on the ropes in 1992, on its last rubbery legs, pummeled by grunge. But when Pantera body-slammed Vulgar Display on the listening public, it completely re-energized the scene. Metal fans regrouped and regained the hope that not all was lost. In fact, Pantera spent most of the '90s making monstrous music designed to disrupt trends. Vulgar Display is a beast of an album, a deafening statement of intent that sent Pantera to the forefront of metal, where they'd proudly roost for over a decade.

Customer Reviews

Pantera's Best Album...

Vulgar Display of Power is definately Pantera's catchiest work overall, with heavy, buzzin' guitars that your ears just can't get enough of. Mouth for War, Walk, "Hostile", This Love, and Hollow probably the golden achievements, but that doesn't mean there is a dull spot between tracks 6-10. Every song is fresh and catchy in its own metal way. Just buy the whole album. Walk may be the catchiest at first listen, but once you really listen to the others, you'll find out there's a lot more to experience with Pantera. The Reason that this album doesn't SEEM as popular their other album is, well, a screwup. You see, not too long ago each of Pantera's albums had doubles. I mean, they literally had 2 Vulgar Display of Powers, Cowboys from Hells, etc. One of the dulplicates was way more popular than the other... And that one got taken off. This can be a little sad due to the fact that many great reviews (about 200 or so) got erased. I don't know how iTunes could may such a worthless and stupid mistake, but listen, Vulgar is the Best. It was the most popular before the "incident". One of Metal's finest...

true metal

This is one of there best albums. Every song is good no bad songs. Just buy the cd.

The Raining Blood and Master of Puppets of the 90's

I was in elementary school when this came out I think. I didn't even get into this heavy of metal till I was a junior and a senior from 97-99. This album was so epic, it completely destroyed Metallica and Slayer. Much of the success of this album is Dimebag Darrell, an expert metal guitarist. He can create amazing riffs in standard tuning. The song Walk is basic, but heavy and memorable to the core! The best songs are, I'm not going to lie, all of them. The only song I really don't care for is Live In a Hole. But any metal head who doesn't want to be a poser needs this album.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

The preeminent metal band of the early to mid-'90s, Pantera put to rest any and all remnants of the '80s metal scene, almost single-handedly demolishing any notion that hair metal, speed metal, power metal, et al., were anything but passé. Loathe to admit it, the Texas band had in fact been one of those '80s metal bands, releasing fairly unsuccessful (and later disowned) glam-inspired music throughout much of the decade. The about-face came with the addition of vocalist Phil Anselmo, and the key...
