The legendary metal band Pantera is taking to the stage again and Prague will not be missing out! In Prague’s O2 arena they will present themselves to Czech fans after 24 years.
Pantera is regarded as one of the greatest metal bands of all time. The uncompromising quartet of singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist Dimebag Darrell, his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul and bassist Rex Brown quickly rose to massive global success in the 1990s with multiple gold and platinum albums, sold out tours, ferocious live performances, and four Grammy® nominations.
To this day, their metal masterpieces are cornerstones of heavy music, including Cowboys From Hell, Vulgar Display Of Power, and the Billboard#1 album Far Beyond Driven. The Texas foursome continues to inspire multitudes of fellow musicians while garnering millions of insanely devoted fans worldwide.
Pantera from Arlington, Texas is one of the flagship bands of an extreme form of metal called groove metal, which is a slower combination of thrash metal and classic metal. It’s also one of the most successful and influential, having been influenced by Sepultura, Korn and Slipknot. Worldwide, Pantera has sold over twenty million records and has been nominated for four Grammy Awards.
The band formed in 1981 and gained public attention after a change of lead singer in 1986 and the release of the album Power Metal. The 1990s brought three successful albums featuring Phil Anselmo’s distinctive voice and brutal, energetic metal (Cowboys From Hell – 1990, Vulgar Display of Power – 1992 and Far Beyond Driven – 1994), dynamic live shows, followed by Anselmo’s drug addiction and endless band feuds. The band went on hiatus in 2003, and with the death of the Abbott brothers, founding members of the band, today only singer Anselmo and bass guitarist Rex Brown remain from the original lineup.
In July 2022, it was announced that Brown and Anselmo would reunite with the support of guitarist Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne) and drummer Charlie Benante (Anthrax) for a tour in 2023, Pantera’s first tour in 22 years.
