Seems like a brief minute ago, I was drinking beers with Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown at a billiard hall around the corner from the Vic Theatre in Chicago before PANTERA's record release show for VDOP.
And poof. 20 years have vanished but the legacy of one of the greatest metal albums EVER lives on. It's as fucking hostile as ever!
Recorded by singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul, the album has been certified double platinum by the RIAA and features several of the group’s most iconic songs including 'Walk', 'Mouth For War', 'This Love', and 'Fucking Hostile'.

To celebrate, Rhino channels the album’s relentless blitzkrieg of musical aggression onto a two-disc Deluxe Edition. The CD includes the original album remastered and “Piss,” a recently discovered unreleased track from the recording sessions.
The DVD contains an unreleased live performance filmed in Italy in September of 1992 plus the three official music videos from the album.
Due out May 15, 2012 from Rhino, the CD/DVD set will be available at retail outlets and will also be available digitally.
The collection features the debut of 'Piss', an incendiary blast of vintage Pantera from the original recording sessions. It remained lost until Vinnie Paul rediscovered the track while going through the band’s vault.
Along with the unreleased song, Vulgar Display Of Power (Deluxe Edition) also features unreleased video of the quartet performing six songs at the Monsters Of Rock show in Reggio Emilia, Italy on September 12, 1992.
The set list draws almost exclusively from Vulgar (“This Love,” “Rise” “Mouth For War”), but also includes the title track from their previous album, Cowboys From Hell, and a melding of Vulgar’s “Hollow” and Cowboys’ “Domination,” which was a live staple of the band.
Video of Pantera performing live during this era is extremely rare, making the DVD one of the few ways to see them in their prime.
