PANTERA was inducted into the Kerrang! Hall Of Fame at this year's Kerrang! Awards, which was held on June 13 at London, England's Troxy Club.
During his acceptance speech, former PANTERA singer Philip Anselmo paid tribute to the legacy of bandmate "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, who was shot dead onstage in 2004.
After the event, Anselmo spoke to Kerrang! magazine deputy editor Simon Young about the honor and PANTERA's legacy. You can watch the chat below.
February 2012 marked the 20-year anniversary for PANTERA's "Vulgar Display Of Power", a landmark album widely acknowledged as one of metal's most enduring and influential masterworks. Recorded by Anselmo, Dimebag, bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, the album has been certified double platinum by the RIAA and features several of the group's most iconic songs including "Walk", "Mouth For War", "This Love" and "Fucking Hostile".
To celebrate, Rhino channeled the album's relentless blitzkrieg of musical aggression onto a two-disc Deluxe Edition. The CD includes the original album remastered and "Piss", a recently discovered unreleased track from the recording sessions. The DVD contains an unreleased live performance filmed in Italy in September of 1992 plus the three official music videos from the album.
