    Default Vulgar Display Of Power ~ Pantera

    VULGAR DISPLAY OF POWER

    Genre-Groove Metal
    Band-Pantera
    Year Released-1992






    One of the most influential heavy metal albums of the 1990s, Vulgar Display of Power is drenched with insanely intense depictions of naked rage and hostility that drains its listeners and pounds them into submission.
    Preaching power through strength and integrity, Phil Anselmo discards any further attempts at singing in favor of a militaristic bark and an unhinged roar, while pummeling riffs against a rhythmic backdrop so thunderously supportive that Dimebag often solos without underlying rhythm guitar parts. Even the "ballads," "This Love" and "Hollow," have thunderously loud, aggressive chorus sections.
    The album again follows Cowboys from Hell's strategy of stacking the best songs at the beginning and letting their momentum carry the listener through the rest, but the riffs and sonic textures are more consistently interesting this time around.

    It is one of the heaviest albums of all time and is a classic. If you do not own this, have not heard it heard of it, know at least one song from it. I suggest you wake up and take a listen.


    This is what heavy metal is about.

    I never got into pantera I don't know why... Nice review. You're making me think I should try them again.

    Although death and Asterix don't agree on this being their best... Which one should I restart with ?



    One for all and all for adore !

    Power Metal, it's the perfect Pantera album I think, although if you want your fix of groove metal Pantera I recommend The Great Southern Trendkill, that album was pretty damn good.

    Cowboys from Hell and The Great Southern Trendkill are pretty good. Especially Cowboys.

    This Album is about 10 times better then Southern Trendkill (which is sick).

    Cowboys is a great album but this one imo is better. More consistent.

    I respect your opinion.

    I know it's old fashioned but you should also check out some of their old albums (they started out as hair metal).

    I got everyone of their albums hahaha. Those are just fun to listen to and see them transcend into what they became.

    This is a great album in my opinion, and I don't think it's mediocre at all.

    Nice review, Mud.

    Very nice review! I read your review about a week ago but I've finally listened to the album a few times, to the point where I'm familiar with the songs... My favorites are Walk, This Love, Rise, No Good (Attack The Radical) and Hollow... Such a great album...

    I'm listening to this album right now...

    Not start to finish because I'm moving around from Pantera album to Pantera album but I'm gonna get a few good songs in from VDoP...
