Dimebag Darrell, Phil Anselmo, Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown

Pantera (Spanish for "Panther") was an American heavy metal band from Arlington, Texas, formed in 1981. The group's best-known lineup consisted of the Abbott brothers—drummer Vinnie Paul and guitarist Dimebag Darrell—along with vocalist Phil Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown. In addition to their development and popularization of the groove metal subgenre, Pantera is credited for being part of the second wave of thrash metal scene from the late 1980s to early-to-mid 1990s.

Metal Magic (1983)[edit]

    • Ride My Rocket

Projects in the Jungle (1984)[edit]

  • It's the same corruption, everywhere I look
    There's a brand new rule inside a brand new book
    Some people claim that the devil is loose
    They blame it all on the rock 'n' roll youth
    That don't stop me, I'm on a roll
    I found the noise, bangin' my soul
    So take it up, loud as you can
    There's just one rule that I understand
    I'll stick my fist, high in the air
    I'll make a sign, 'cause I don't care
    Heavy Metal Rules!
    • Heavy Metal Rules

I Am the Night (1985)[edit]

    • I Am the Night
  • WARNING a general surgeon
    has warned that D*G*T*T*M
    may be hazardous to you mental,
    as well as "METAL" health.
    To obtain maximum benefit
    follow these "easy to follow"
    (1) barricade your door
    (2) lock all existing exits
    (3) place your stereo volume on 11
    (4) lay back with your favorite indulgence and "communicate"

    Diamond Darrell and the "BEAST"
    of PANTERA....BEWARE!!!!!!!
    • D*G*T*T*M" (Darrell Goes to the Movies)

Power Metal (1988)[edit]

  • In these times
    Of confusion and sin
    We must redeem
    Our human ways
    This force that
    Fights to live
    Will fight
    Till it dies
    And rise again
    To save the day
    • Rock the World

Cowboys from Hell (1990)[edit]

  • You see us coming and you all together run for cover! We're takin' over this town!
  • Here we come reach for your gun
    And you better listen my friend, you see
    Its been slow down below,
    Aimed at you were the cowboys from hell
    Deed is done again, we've won
    Ain't talking no tall tales friend
    cause high noon, your doom
    Comin for you were the cowboys from hell
    • Cowboys from Hell
  • I know what's right or wrong
    And my belief is stronger
    Than your advice
    People, they go to war
    Because religion gives them
    Reason to fight
    Sacrifice, die for pride
    A group that caters
    No one's fees
    Or synthetic deities
    Is where I belong
    My stand is the human race
    Without a label or a face
    So they can lick my sack
    • Heresy
  • The way we were
    The chance to save my soul
    And my concern is now in vain
    Believe the word
    I will unlock my door
    And pass the cemetery gates
  • Agony is the price that you'll pay in the end
    Domination consumes you then calls you a friend
    • Domination
So now, this is the art
To shred... it's only emotion
  • So now, this is the art
    To shred... it's only emotion
    • The Art of Shredding

Vulgar Display of Power (1992)[edit]

The releasing of anger can better any medicine under the sun
  • The releasing of anger can better any medicine under the sun
  • Now a new look in my eyes my spirit rise
    Forget the past
    Present tense works and lasts
    Got shit on
    Pissed on
    Spit on
    Stepped on
    Fucked with
    Pointed at by lesser men
    • A New Level
  • Re-
    What did you say?!
    Are you talking to me?!
    Are you talking to me?!
    No way, punk!
  • I'd kill myself for you, and I'd kill you for myself.
  • It's time to spread the word
    Let the voice be heard
    All of us, one of us, all of us
    Dominate and take the motherfucking world
    • Rise
Mass prediction, unification
Breathing life into our lungs
EVERY creed and EVERY kind
To give us depth for strength
  • Mass prediction, unification
    Breathing life into our lungs
    EVERY creed and EVERY kind
    To give us depth for strength
    • Rise

The Great Southern Trendkill (1996)[edit]

  • My foes
    They can't destroy my body
    Colliding slow
    Like life itself.
    • 10's
  • Cheap cocaine, a dry inhale, the pills that kill and take the pain away.
  • It's not worth the time to try
    to replenish a rotting life
    I'll end the problem
    facing nothing
    fuck you off
    fuck you all!
The trend is dead!
  • And throughout the day, mankind played with grenades.
    Cold-hearted world
    And in night, they might bait the pentagram.
    Extinguishing the sun
    Wash away man
    Take him with the floods!
  • The trend is dead!
    • The Underground in America

Reinventing the Steel (2000)[edit]

  • Yesterday don't mean shit
    What's over is over and nothing between
    Yesterday don't mean shit
    Because tomorrow's a day you have to face!
    • Yesterday Don't Mean Shit
