Description

Joe Giron shot photographs of Pantera since 1983 and throughout the rest of the band's career, offering a breathtaking, behind-the-scenes, comprehensive visual history of Pantera. A Vulgar Display of Pantera includes contributions and recollections from band members Rex Brown and Vinnie Paul Abbott. It is both a love song to Dimebag Darrell, one of Rock's last great guitar heroes, as well as an impressive testament to Pantera's enduring legacy. Pantera were one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time-and arguably the most important metal band of the 1990s. Pantera's 1994 album, Far Beyond Driven, debuted at number-one on the Billboard 200 chart. Pantera has sold over 25 million albums worldwide! In the U.S. alone, four Pantera albums were certified platinum and two more went gold. Their social media following is robust and will be employed to promote the book. Pantera has nearly 9 million followers on Facebook, over 600,000 followers on Twitter, and over 150,000 followers on Instagram. Pantera videos have gotten over 152 million views on YouTube.
