Vulgar Display of Power [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
One of the most influential heavy metal albums of the 1990s, Vulgar Display of Power is just what is says: a raw, pulverizing, insanely intense depiction of naked rage and hostility that drains its listeners and pounds them into submission. Even the "ballads", "This Love" and "Hollow," have thunderingly loud, aggressive chorus sections. Preaching power through strength and integrity, Phil Anselmo discards any further attempts at singing in favor of a militaristic bark and an unhinged roar, while the crystal-clear production sets Diamond Darrell's pummeling riffs against a rhythmic backdrop so thunderously supportive that Darrell often solos without underlying rhythm guitar ...

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
One of the most influential heavy metal albums of the 1990s, Vulgar Display of Power is just what is says: a raw, pulverizing, insanely intense depiction of naked rage and hostility that drains its listeners and pounds them into submission. Even the "ballads", "This Love" and "Hollow," have thunderingly loud, aggressive chorus sections. Preaching power through strength and integrity, Phil Anselmo discards any further attempts at singing in favor of a militaristic bark and an unhinged roar, while the crystal-clear production sets Diamond Darrell's pummeling riffs against a rhythmic backdrop so thunderously supportive that Darrell often solos without underlying rhythm guitar parts. The album again follows Cowboys from Hell's strategy of stacking the best songs at the beginning and letting their momentum carry the listener through the rest, but the riffs and sonic textures are more consistently interesting this time around. Pantera's thick-sounding, post-hardcore power metal and outraged, testosterone-drenched intensity would help pave the way for alternative metal acts like Korn and Tool; Vulgar Display of Power is the best distillation of those virtues.

    One Giant Sonic Suckerpunch!!

    Pantera were the epitome of Heavy Metal in the 90's, and Vulgar Display of Power is Pantera at thier metal best. The opening track, Mouth For War, is pummelling, heavy, and nothing short of cool. The warped sonic maddness of Walk(my fave)remains a Pantera favorite. But perhaps one of the more standout tracks on V.D.P. is This Love. It starts out sorta like a psuedo-ballad, but get to the chorus, and all hell breaks loose. Need I say anymore?

    Vulgar Display of Power

    Heavy metal changed after the release of this album. The best songs are "Mouth For War," "Walk," and "Fu*king Hostile." If you are a fan of Metallica, I think you'd enjoy this album. Although they aren't as fast as other thrash bands, they are very heavy.

    Power!

    Really Angry songs. Vocals, guitars and evrything is OK. The level of the songs is quite a good. There isn't unfortunately different kinds of tracks. All the tracks are so simple, not much but however it can't give them five stars.
