Twenty years ago today the mighty Pantera released  their second album Vulgar Display of Power.

I stood in line at the record store to buy it.

It has been a part of the soundtack of my life ever since.  It is one of those albums ( we all have them) that is such a part of my life that every track is associated with multiple memories  for me, some decades old, some much more recent.

I still listen to it almost daily, especially when it is time to move something heavy or bend a perfectly good piece of metal into twisted shapes that are only useful for decoration.

This Explicit Lyric Live clip from 1992 shows them on the upward swing, toward the height of their power and total domination the Metal World. Enjoy.


Rest in Peace Brother Dimebag.
