Pantera were an American Thrash Metal band from Arlington, Texas. Formed by the Abbott brothers, Vincent and Darrell in 1981,Rex Brown would join in late 1981 with vocalist Terry Glaze. Looking for a new and heavier sound, Pantera had Terry replaced in 1987 with Phil Anselmo as the new vocalist. Vinnie Paul unearthed “Piss” as the band was preparing the 20th anniversary deluxe edition of Vulgar Display of Power, which is due out 11th May. “After mixing it, I can’t believe it didn’t make the record," Paul said. "So it’s 2012 and 20 years later and new Pantera music has been delivered. Cheers!”
Vulgar Display of Power is the band’s sixth studio album. It was released through Acto Records, on 25th February 1992. It is the last album where Darrell Abbott is credited as "Diamond Darrell". One of the most influential groove metal albums of the 1990s,Vulgar Display of Power is said to have played a major role in defining Groove Metal. Several songs from this release have become some of the band's best known, such as "Fucking Hostile", "Mouth For War", "This Love", and "Walk". The album is the band's first to be labeled with a Parental Advisory Warning. Vulgar Display of Power is regarded as the band's best work. Zach Meck directed the video. The deluxe edition of Vulgar Display of Power will also include a DVD featuring an unreleased live performance filmed in Italy in September 1992, along with the album's three official music videos.
