Let's talk about a band that was at one point (or maybe still is) their favorite band.

How did you first hear about them? Did you ever see them live? Any of their side projects?

Unfortunately I got into them right when they broke up. I didn't know it at the time, but it was around 2003 and I was just getting into the metal scene hardcore going to record stores (when they still sold CDs) in search of killer riffs and something to turn the volume all the way up on.

I would scan the entire alphabetical list of artists and since I had most Metallica and Testament albums (the past few years) I saw Pantera and thought man these album covers look metal as fuck.

I got Reinventing the Steel first and went back that same week buying all the rest. I was in college at the time and skipped almost all of my classes just to sit in the parking lot that entire week and a half listening to each and every single song.

I'll never forget the impact those songs on me and I was doing everything from working out and running to them to writing guitar riffs and learning Dime's parts.

Then I searched to find them so I could see them live and read so much about their issues together these recent years and all their side projects they were working on. That's around the time I found the PBB (man was it bumping and so ruthless back then haha - but mostly just izzy trolling everyone). IFryKids was hilarious and scorn and SYE from time to time. Ok getting off subject.

Long story short, I ended up seeing Phil in Superjoint and Down and was loving it but knew I had missed out on Pantera and would never get the chance to see them live.

Then Dime RIP

And never cared for Damageplan (sounded too generic for me)

The End

Your turn

Never heard of them, I'm just here to buy Vinnie's unwanted kitchen appliances.

i was somewhat into metal at age 14 and a coworker of mine at my first job had repeatedly told me they were his favorite band. not long afterwards Dime got shot and was in the news, people were quite upset about it on the internet, and so i bought their greatest hits CD next time i was in the record store to check out what the big deal was. instantaneously became my favorite band for the next few years.

I saw Big Vin's Arby's commercial on TV as a youth. The rest is history...
