Pantera’s fans will rejoice when they get their hands on this double DVD set that features the 3 VHS releases from the 1990’s.

It’s a great way to remember the power that this band held in their hands from the start. Albums such as “Cowboys From Hell”, “Vulgar Display Of Power” and “Far Beyond Driven” were some of the most head-banging material to be presented to the Metal community. It was very quick that Pantera grabbed the throat of the fans and showed them a new level of brutality that did not suffer in technical ability thanks to the Brothers Vinny Paul and Dimebag Darrell. The duo were continually bringing fresh Metal ideas to the table and while Vinny’s drumming was among the most solid to come around in awhile, Dime’s level of guitar wizardry would set him on a path to being referred to as one of the greatest that the genre would ever encounter. Front man Philip Anselmo was also someone who should not be taken lightly, as his sheer intensity during the songs and on the stage took the role of lead singer to a new level. He was a tougher and more in your face type and that worked with the music of Pantera very well. I was an early fan of the band and I enjoyed the albums I hold close to my Metal heart the most being the ones represented on this package. Songs like “Cemetery Gates” and “This Love” are still among my favorite Metal songs of all.
