The Best & Worst of Pantera – Ep488


This week we’re joined by fellow podcasters Joshua Toomey and Chris Akin as we go over The Best & Worst of Pantera!

With the Texas metal legends making news recently with the reunion of Philip Anselmo and Rex Brown along with drummer Charlie Benante and guitarist Zakk Wylde, we figured it’s as good a time as any to look back on this incredible band’s musical catalog.

Starting with 1990’s ‘Cowboys from Hell,’ Pantera blazed a whole new path for thrash and metal music. The Abbott brothers; Vinny Paul and Dimebag Darrell, cemented their place in music history and begun a run with Anselmo and Brown that hasn’t been equalled. The subsequent releases ‘Vuglar Display of Power,’ ‘Far Beyond Driven,’ ‘The Great Southern Trendkill,’ and ‘Reinventing the Steel’ helped the band lay claim as one of the most influential metal bands of all-time.

In this long-form discussion, we all share our thoughts on these albums, tell stories of how they personally affected us, and a lot more while picking our favorite and least favorite from each album. This was no easy task but we think you’ll enjoy it. We also discuss the 101 Proof Live album as well as some of the b-sides and rarities that Pantera churned out over the years.

We hope you enjoy The Best & Worst of Pantera and SHARE with a friend! Check out Chris Akin and Joshua Toomey on the Talk Toomey Podcast presented by Knotfest as well as The Classic Metal Show at
