Pantera

Pantera is a popular heavy metal band from Texas. This four-piece band has churned out a slew of albums, beginning with their first major label album in the early 1990s, Cowboys From Hell, and extending to their latest, Reinventing the Steel[?], in 2000. In that time, the band has toured the world, saw the rise and fall and subsequent rise of metal[?].

Up to Vulgar Display of Power, Pantera's music was fairly strictly along the lines of classic heavy metal -- with singing and screaming in the vocals (although the screaming is more high pitched than is normally found in nu-metal vocals, for example) and the extravagant riffs and solos[?] of guitarist Dimebag Darrell. However, Phil Anselmo[?]'s vocals in particular have developed considerably since then, becoming more and more influenced by the singer's black metal influences.

They have toured as part of the Ozzfest[?] (both in the United States and United Kingdom) and with support from Powerman 5000.
