Pantera /pantɛ:ra/ was an American metal band from Arlington, Texas. It was formed in 1981 by the Abbott brothers – drummer Vinnie Paul and guitarist Dimebag Darrell – along with vocalist Terry Glaze. Bassist Rex Brown joined the band the next year. Looking for a new and heavier sound, Pantera replaced Glaze in 1987 with Phil Anselmo as the new vocalist. Having started as a glam metal band, Pantera released four albums during the 1980s. For their fifth album, 1990's Cowboys from Hell, Pantera introduced a heavier groove metal sound. Their sixth album, 1992's Vulgar Display of Power, revealed a heavier sound still. Their 1994 release of Far Beyond Driven debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200.
