*cheesy groove metal band.

Groove metal is a pretty disliked metal genre in general, but I like Pantera in small dosis. I don't really want to hear much more of the genre though. I'd rather listen to thrash.

I bet phil would probably od and be the first member to die and dime and Vinnie would have made a few more damage plan albums.

I really liked VDoP and all of FBD except "Good Friends and a Bottle of Pills".

Everything before and after, feh.

Groove metal is just slowed down thrash metal. I never thought they were very boring, especially on A Vulgar Display Of Power or Far Beyond Driven.

They made that kind of music popular again, and there were a bunch of thrash metal bands that adopted the groove metal style to become more accessible.

Yeah I guess so. There are a few songs that sound quite thrash-y like Strength Beyond Strength and Primal Concrete Sledge, but yeah I guess you can pin them further down as groove metal in general that lean towards the thrashier side compared to a lot of groove metal bands. Would explain the reason I don't like them.

I don't know if Pantera would have gone down such a road... but I do think Metallica have gone down an embarrassing, deplorable and unspeakable road lately. Retirement for those lads right away!

Blimey, I might agree. I thought I did like Metallica a little... but I realise that not only do I have an aversion toward them, but their music might get me all riled up as well.
"Hit the Lights", sung by D. Mustaine, was a nice one, though, wasn't it?

I actually asked myself this once, and honestly, I could see Pantera at least embracing some metalcore elements as time went on. It's best that Pantera ended when it did, or else we'd probably see bad cop/good cop vocals plaguing all of their songs, with screamed verses and clean choruses, or vice versa. Basically Lamb of God but with singing too.

Pantera, much like Nirvana, is generally regarded as a great band because they quit before they started to pump out ****ty songs. Some may not be fans of the later albums, but they weren't awful.
