Phil Anselmo Calls Out ‘Worst’ Pantera Album


Phil Anselmo ranked his best to worst Pantera albums in a new Revolver interview.

“Man, the only record I had a tough time doing the sequencing for was the last record, ‘Reinventing the Steel.’

“It was almost like any one of those songs could have opened up the record or closed the record – it was tough.

“And maybe for that reason alone maybe I’ll say, I’ll go with… Oh, this is tough, man. But ‘Reinventing the Steel’ [is the best one]…

“Then I’ll go with [1994’s] ‘Far Beyond Driven’…

“Then let’s go with [1992’s] ‘Vulgar Display of Power,’ then [1996’s] ‘The Great Southern Trendkill,’ [1990’s] ‘Cowboys From Hell,’ and ‘Power Metal.’ Let’s just go like that.

“‘Power Metal,’ yeah, it was the first one I did, 1988. Yeah, ‘Come here stand in this room! Sing!’ It’s like, ‘Where am I…?’ ‘Here! Write some heavy metal lyrics for this!’ ‘Oh, Jesus, alright…'”

Phil’s best to worst Pantera albums:
1. “Reinventing the Steel” (2000)
2. “Far Beyond Driven” (1994)
3. “Vulgar Display of Power” (1992)
4. “The Great Southern Trendkill” (1996)
