10 essential guitar albums - Pantera 'Vulgar Dispaly Of Power'
“Although Dimebag had a profound influence on me, to be honest, I didn’t quite understand the band at first. To me, they were almost like Metallica with one guitar. And they had a very distinctly American sound, way more than Metallica.
“What made me appreciate the band was seeing them live. That’s when I realized that even a very heavy metal band can still come from rhythm and blues. Everything is focused around the rhythm and the grooves, whereas with European music it stems from melody and harmony. I didn’t feel that in my gut until I saw Pantera live, and then it all made sense.”
“With Five Finger Death Punch, I hade the idea of marrying the two schools of thought, the American power groove with the European harmony-melody base. That’s what Five Finger Death Punch became, and half of that influence came from Pantera.”
