* CreatorBreakdown: ''The Great Southern Trendkill'' was recorded during a time of tension within Pantera. Philip Anselmo had started distancing himself from his bandmates due to, as he stated in [[https://youtu.be/cr0Q7fPI98o?t=11m14s this interview]], the shame he felt towards his heroin addiction. When recording the album Anselmo recorded his vocal tracks at a studio (owned by [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]]) in UsefulNotes/NewOrleans while the rest of the band recorded their parts in Dallas. These tensions can be heard on the album; which uses overdubs to give some songs a "demonic" sounds. There are also no less than 3 songs about drug abuse.

* ReclusiveArtist: Surprisingly enough, Phil. He resides in the middle of a Louisiana swamp with no neighbors other than the animals he takes care of, admitting that he prefers the quiet and solitude of such an area. He also chooses not to have a Facebook account or even a telephone, strictly using email for communication with other people.

** Interestingly, Anselmo seems to have lightened up on ''Power Metal'' a bit - when asked about how he'd feel about a hypothetical reissue, he said he wouldn't be opposed, calling it "a pretty solid metal record all around in the vein of Music/JudasPriest" and praising Dimebag's "brutal" guitar work on certain songs.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Despite the amount of OldShame from the first three albums, Vinnie Paul and first singer Glaze had actually talked to each other about a possible one-off reunion show with the old lineup where they'd play that material in early 2004. The death of Dimebag negated any chances of that.

* ShortLivedBigImpact: If you [[CanonDiscontinuity discount the band's 1980s material]] then Pantera was only around for slightly more than a decade. However, many modern metal bands (MachineHead, DevilDriver, LambOfGod, FiveFingerDeathPunch, and countless others) cite Pantera as being a major influence on their music. * WhatCouldHaveBeen: Despite the amount of OldShame from the first three albums, Vinnie Paul and first singer Glaze had actually talked to each other about a possible one-off reunion show with the old lineup where they'd play that material in early 2004.

He told Dave Mustaine he'd be happy to join, but that Dave would have to hire Vinnie as well. When Dave replied that he'd already hired drummer Nick Menza, Dimebag thanked him for the opportunity and turned him down.

* OldShame: The first four albums mentioned above, for both the fans and the band themselves. For some fans, anyways, it falls under FanonDiscontinuity. Anselmo's first album, ''Power Metal'', was later dismissed by him as "immature":

--> "I sang on over half the record and I'd only been in the band a month. It should never have been released."
