Product Description

Product Description

(2-LP set) 1992 release.

Upon its release in the mid-1990s, Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power proved that, even in an era of alternative rock supremacy, heavy metal fans were still a force to contend with. Blending eerie, surging grooves with thrashy speed metal riffs, Pantera created a bleak, oppressive disc that captured both ends of the speed spectrum without resorting to clichi, abrupt tempo shifts. Guitarist Diamond Darrell plays with as much crunch as the best Metallica, while vocalist Phil Anselmo screams loud enough to satisfy any GBH fan. Coupled with Vinnie Paul's insistent, double bass-drum onslaught, you're left with an album that'll shake the fillings out of even the strongest teeth. --Jon Wiederhorn --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Actually, this album gets 4 and 1/2 stars. I love this album, mainly for the song "walk." that song is one of their best, if not, their best song ever. "Mouth for War," like "Cowboys from Hell," is a tremendous opening song for an album. I love "A New Level" because it's an extremely heavy song. when i saw the title "F***ing Hostile," i was expecting not to care for it that much, but instead i love it. it is extremely fast and extremely pounding; you can tell it is going to be brutal the second you hear phil scream "one, two, three, four." other songs that i am personally fond of are "rise" and "no good" sure "no good" has rapping, but phil's rapping mixes really well with metal.
now the downside with me is with "by demons, be driven" and "hollow." don't get me wrong, i like both songs. but the ending to "by demons, be driven" is much longer than it needs to be, so it tends to drag a little. "hollow" i like better than "by demons, be driven," but i do not like how it ends on a negative note. it just doesn't seem to have any resolution, it makes a transition from sorrow to complete anger and resentment. it seems a lot of pantera songs seem to end on a negative note, and that is my only problem with pantera lyrics. other than that, their music is one of a kind and i respect them for their talent. in conclusion, vulgar display of power is not as good as cowboys from hell and reinventing the steel, but it is not that far behind them because it is a tremendous album.

It's 1992. With hardcore metal becoming more mainstream(mostly due to Metallica; no comment) and the rise of grunge and hip hop(much to my delight), what would be the fate of the genre? Fear not, fellow headbangers! Pantera, who had already relased the delightfully energetic Cowboys From Hell two years earlier, would excrete their measure of revenge on the music world. Vulgar Display Of Power is the best metal and second best rock album of 1992, after Alice In Chains "Dirt".The influences of Metallica,Motorhead, Rush, Lynyrd Skynyrd and even some Bad Brains are prevelant, and the lyrics and musicianship are top notch. Track for track there is no let up on the kick ass Texas rock; I use to listen to "Mouth For War" "F****n Hostile" and "Walk" all the time, because I bought the album for those songs, but my favorite songs are "Rise", "This Love" and "Hollow". What really suprised me was the song "No Good", where the band sounds like a heavier version of Faith No More, and Phil Anselmo's rapping(if that's what he's doing)is pretty good. It's sad that they've broken up, because metal needs them; but never say never.......

Somewhere in amongst my old hockey card collection, in it's own protective sleeve, is a signed (Dimebag) ticket when I saw them on tour for this album here in Phoenix at the Celebrity Theatre. Also, somewhere there's a pack of "death smokes" (those of you who don't know, don't matter) that Dime threw at me during the show (yes, he threw them AT me...I was going apesh*t the whole show, hanging off a railing, air guitar and drums, all exactly on-time...the whole nine yards. He loved that and he could see me because I was right in front of the mixing board which was probably no more than 80-100 ft. in front of them.) That tour would pretty much be the last of the small venues for them as they would later go on to play massive shows in Russia and all over the world. White Zombie and Crowbar opened for them that day. I never did see them live again although I kept buying their albums and to a certain degree I'm glad I didn't (see them again) because I was spoiled by that one was amazing and you just can't duplicate the intensity of being so close to the band. One of the funniest things I remember is maybe about halfway through the set Phil proclaimed he was gonna puke, to which the whole crowd started shouting "PUKE! PUKE! PUKE!" while he was hunched over on stage. He never managed to, but the whole scene was something that would stick in anyone's mind this many years later. Anyhow!
This is one of the best metal albums of all time and strangely (or maybe not) enough, the critics typically agree.

First of all, this album rocks. I got into this CD when I heard "Hostile" and a friend reccomended Pantera to me. What suprises me more than how heavy and brutal this album was, the fact that so many people gave it a bad review. How can you claim that all the vocals are "obnoxious screams??" Try listening to bands such as Nile or Dying Fetus, and then you can get back to me on that one. Second, people are saying that Dimebag Darrel is "stealing riffs from other songs" and being "unoriginal." What the hell is that all about? Not only is Dime an excellent guitarist, but all Pantera's material is original and unique sounding. And lastly, one person said that Vinnie Paul was "the worst drummer they have ever heard." I can't even comprehend this. Well, maybe if your stupid and you think that just because a drummer can rip up on the set and mop the floor with drummers of lesser bands, if that's what you call a horrible drummer than maybe they are right. Anyone who thinks otherwise is just plain stupid, I'd like to see you try to keep up with Vinnie Paul.
