The event will start at 7pm EST. This will be an awesome way to celebrate the legacy of Pantera and Vulgar Display Of Power. Make sure to RSVP via the Facebook event page.

Vulgar Display Of Power is one of the most championed records in all of metal, among the likes of Metallica’s Black AlbumSlayer’s Reign In Hell, Iron Maiden’s The Number Of The Beast, and more.

Last week, we kicked off our celebration of the record, premiering HD remastered music videos of iconic songs off Vulgar Display Of Power (alongside exclusive video footage of our interview with Phil Anselmo). Our exclusive music videos include “This Love,” “Mouth For War,” and “Walk.” We also talked with Arejay of Halestorm and Stephen of Deftones about what Pantera means to them.

In a recent interview with Revolver, as transcribed by Blabbermouth, Phil Anselmo shared the following about Vulgar Display Of Power’s legacy:

“Correct if I’m wrong — is ‘Vulgar Display Of Power’ the one record that we play the most of it live, out of all the other records, the most material. I mean, does that not say it all? It’s not our choice, really — it’s what we get from the crowd; it’s what they wanna hear; it’s their choice what songs we play, really. Don’t get me wrong, Pantera plays and there’s a contingency of people out there that wanna hear something that we had never really played; of course people are gonna do that. But for us, we can’t leave off the big songs; we can’t. You can’t go see Pantera and not have us play ‘Walk’ or ‘Fucking Hostile’ or one of them songs — ‘Cowboys From Hell’, any of that shit. So the fact that ‘Vulgar Display’ holds the most of those songs, man… And I’m sitting here thinking about how Vince [late Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott] and Dime [late Pantera guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott] would feel about this legacy, and, of course, they would be ecstatic; they would be over the moon.”
