Again, a day late (I know, how shit am I?), but it’s finally here. The greatest band ever to be named after a panty liner, Pantera, will have a deluxe special edition of classic opus Vulgar Display Of Power released on May 21 to coincide with the album’s 20th anniversary. I’ll probably pick it up. Will you?
Anyways, the previously unreleased track ‘Piss’, taken from the Vulgar Display Of Power sessions has been released and it has an accompanying video for you to watch too. Check it out above.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve always wished for a band to somehow juxtapose Pantera songs with a dinosaurs theme. I’m not gonna explain why I think that’s awesome, but if you are anything like me, it’s your lucky fucking day!
“As I learned via our friend Mark Vieira on Twitter today, there actually is a band in Los Angeles called Panteradactyl. On their Facebook page, they describe themselves in this simple manner: We dress up like dinosaurs and play Pantera songs.’ And they’re not kidding.”

How awesome is that, dude? Honestly, I want these guys to play at my son’s funeral!

Phil Anselmo knows how to patch things up with an old friend. It’s common knowledge that saying they’re terrified of you and that they have ‘redneck hatreds’ is gonna bring them all back to you in a split second.
So Phil got interviewed recently, and I simply copy-pasted what I read on Blabbermouth because it just makes my work easier, and it’s not like people don’t already know I’m a ‘hack blogger,’ so let’s get right to it.
“Vinnie Paul’s closed-door policy when it comes to me, that’s something he’s gonna have to ride around on his shoulders the rest of his fucking life. I know this: My door is always open, and always has been open — always has been fucking open. And it is a little frustrating when you have a loose end and you’re trying to tighten everything up. But you can’t make everybody fucking happy all of the time — you can’t.
So, Vinnie Paul, he has no effect on my life at all — no effect at all. Good job, I’ll say to Vince — you’ve hurt me. And you keep on hurting me. Great job! Where is it getting you? That’s my question to him. My door has always been wide open, and I’ll leave it at that, because I think everybody else knows the rest. It’s fucking pretty A-B-C simple. He doesn’t want to…
There is a fear in him of me. That motherfucker is so fucking terrified of me. But somewhere within that terror, somewhere within this invented — and I do say ‘invented’ — scapegoat fucking slapping redneck hatred of his, there is a love bigger than any of that fucking shit, and that’s why he’s acting the way he’s acting. So that’s that.“
Wow, settle down there Phil. If I wanted to read a novel written by you, I’d pre-order your autobiography.
I do think blaming Phil for Dime’s death is a bit like blaming a surfer for a hurricane. But I remember a time when Dimebag was alive and a certain vocalist was trying to jab both him and Vinnie in the press. But on the other hand, I am positive Dimebag would have forgiven Phil, because he just seemed like a nice guy.
Why am I making assumptions about people I don’t know and scenarios I’ve never been a part of? Because I’m lame, so maybe I should just mind my own fucking business.
Pantera rules, though. \m/
It’s a very slow Friday here at the Dose of Metal office, probably because we don’t have one.
Anyway, since we don’t have a great Top 10 for today, instead of just not posting one, I’ve decided to do a half-assed one. Well, everything on this site is half-assed, so this would be more of a ‘quarter-assed’ article.
So this is a list of ten live videos I enjoy. If you can’t cope with so much mediocrity, please understand that it’s not our fault our moms drank vodka during our pregnancies.
We also used that photo of a crowd that a reader sent to us, just to show how racially diverse we are, yo.
I don’t really like commenting on musician’s personal lives, cause I don’t actually know them, so it’s not really my place — but I do it anyway, because why wouldn’t I?
Vinnie and Phil haven’t spoken to each other since Pantera split up. After Dimebag’s death, Vinnie blamed Phil for it, which is fucking stupid. But nowadays Rita, Dime’s girlfriend, is forgiving Phil and is urging Vinnie to do it as all.
To be honest, I do agree that Dime would have probably forgiven Phil if he was still alive. I really doubt he wanted any animosity between Vinnie, Rex and Phil, so they should all kiss and make up and honor Dime together. That’s how I see it.
Check the interview above to see Rita agreeing with me. Can’t blame her, I’m awesome.
Last week we covered concert riots, and at one point I mentioned I might make a follow up. Here we are, it’s Friday Next, and let’s see if the sequel is any good.
Make the jump for ten funny, weird or simply fucked up stage incidents.
We’ve done so many Top 10′s already, but this time we’ve decided to top it all with a Top 26. 26? There was something with 26, right? You got it! The Latin alphabet, that is used in most countries on this planet, has 26 letters.
So what are we going to do with these 26 letters? Well, every band has a bandname, and every bandname consists of letters. Can you follow me so far? We’re going to list the best band for each letter of the Latin alphabet (including their best song and album).
Ain’t that cool, now? It sure is. Make the jump for 26 letters and 26 ear-shattering Metal bands!
Remember this? I decided I’m gonna post, from time to time, a song from one of the bands mentioned in that day’s news.
DThis time it’s Pantera‘s turn, because of that awkward Phil interview below. Don’t be fooled by the Kiss thumbnail, it’s really Panfuckingtera.
Anyway, I love this song. I’m not a Reinventing The Steel fan at all, but this song kicks ass. Just listen to the riffs. Linkin Park would have made two albums out of the amount of riffs played in this single song.
The video is pretty funny, too. Albeit a bit cheesy, but that small Dimebag kid always puts a smile on my face (not in that way, sickos!).
I don’t really like it when classic shows get revived (look what happened to Family Guy), but I’m really excited about “Beavis and Butt-head” coming back.
I know I’ve posted that very same video in the original news post about this but hey, it’s funny and today is a slow news day. Deal with it.
In last week’s edition of the Weak Recap, we decided to change things up a little. So Alex decided to wear a different hat, Guido changed his name to Bill, and I spent the entire interview hopping up and down on a pogo stick. For anyone who was lucky enough to witness it, they experienced one of the greatest feelings you can possibly feel, next to sex.
No, what really went down is we had the genius idea of doing what we already do (one of us interviews one of the other members of the team regarding the past week’s news) and instead added an extra person to the mix. It was like one huge orgy and a good time was had by all.
So how are we going to step things up this week? Well we’re taking it to a whole new level, I’m talking about the next level. No, ok, we’re just going to do the same thing, but it’ll be awesome, I promise.
Make the jump for this week’s Weak Recap, with myself (Mark) interviewing both Guido and Alex.
