This week’s metal history lesson road trips to the Lone Star State for a wild tour of the early years of 1990s metal banner-wavers Pantera. Over the course of four self-released albums during the 1980s, Pantera combined the best of glam and classic heavy metal with flashy lead guitar an ample pour of their Texas upbringing. Music from Pantera’s fist-pumping first four albums meets tracks by Pantera papa Jerry Abbott, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Bugs Henderson, Rotting Corpse, Phil Anselmo’s 1980s band Razor White, and former Pantera singer Terry Glaze’s band Lord Tracy. Celebrate the life of Dimebag Darrell, getcha pull, and know your Roots!
