The first part of Pantera’s career; may not have yielded its best results. Their efforts in the 1980’s saw them in the Glam Metal genre which yielded neither commercial nor critical hits. With the addition of vocalist Phil Anselmo, the new decade saw Pantera adopt a new attitude and a new style of Metal later dubbed Groove Metal. As Grunge ripped through the fabric of the Metal landscape, Pantera (though not a Grunge band) helped to make the Glam Metal of the 80’s seem like a tame bubblegum act in comparison. Bucking the trends of other Metal subgenres, Pantera remained loyal to their style and developed a legion of fans that would not have it any other way. The Hall is not a complete impossibility, but there is along wait behind their Metal forefathers to get in.
