Pantera was one of the most popular and influential HeavyMetal bands of TheNineties[[note]]although this is the period where [[GrowingTheBeard they made their definitive sound and essence.[[/note]], from Texas. Starting as a]] HairMetal [[OldShame band]], they changed their style after replacing original singer Terry Glaze with Phil Anselmo in 1988. They disbanded in 2003, and any hope of reunion was dashed after the murder of guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott in December 2004.

** Phil clarified this incident in an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=batVJoqs3UQ interview with Eddie Trunk]]. He admits that while he was indeed drunk, he intended his behavior to be sarcastic to a heckler in the audience. He went on to say that was extremely idiotic of him to do because it didn't come off that way.


Added DiffLines:

** Rex has also stated that he'd love to reconcile with Vinnie. Although in his case Vinnie's reasoning for shutting him out isn't as clear (possibly because he and Phil remain close friends).

* TropeCodifier[=/=]TropeMakers: Arguably of GrooveMetal. Whether they or Exhorder are the TropeMaker is a hotly-debated topic [[InternetBackdraft in the metal community]], and it's very wise to leave that question at that.[[note]]This is pretty much entirely restricted to the fans. The members of both bands are friends with one another, carry mutual respect for each others' work, and think that the debate is stupid and unnecessary.[[/note]]
* VocalEvolution: Phil started out sounding like a cross between [[Music/JudasPriest Rob Halford]] and "Justice"-era [[Music/{{Metallica}} James Hetfield]] (with hints of a Southern accent). Thanks to the effects of heroin addiction and screaming/growling on a regular basis without any proper technique, his voice became deeper and more gravelly throughout the 90's. This is ''especially'' noticeable when comparing his clean singing voice on older ballads like "Cemetary Gates" to his voice on later ones like "Floods."

* HeelFaceTurn: In the first few years following Dimebag's death, Phil Anselmo became one of the most hated figures in heavy metal because of unkind comments he made about Dime prior to his death (he also made several comments ''after'' Dime's death that didn't help his image either). It was even common for Pantera fans to say "Phil should have been the one who got shot instead of Dimebag." [[TheAtoner But since then Phil has quit drugs and worked hard with the metal press to rebuild his image.]] He is currently a highly-respected figure in the metal community. Although it may be ''rocky'' for him after [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement an incident where he shouted "White Power!" and did the Zeig Heil salute at a concert]]...
