    After "Cowboys From Hell," Pantera did their best to hide the record of their three earlier self-produced hair metal albums, on which they pranced around in lipstick, hairspray, latex and (frequently) women's clothing including underwear. Most people in Dallas thought they were completely retarded for this behavior. After hearing some Exhorder, and Prong, and Metallica, new frontman Phil Anselmo -- who admits he is bisexual and uses heroin regularly -- updated the Pantera sound to be rougher and, in keeping with that image, they had to ditch the hairnets and facial cream. However, you can still hear overtones of their forgotten past in their later music. Knowing that these pictures and sounds would ruin Pantera's carefully crafted "toughguy" image, their record company has bought up any copies of these records they could find and sued anyone caught selling them.

    i have a question about pantera
    why the fucking hell is it that everyone who was anywhere in the dallas/ft worth metroplex at any time before pantera became nationally famous totally completely swears that they "personally" knew pantera before they were famous???
    pantera couldn't have possibly been "hanging out" with the entire dallas ft worth metroplex!!!

    Hmm dunno...my guy was a roadie for them along time ago..he went to Dimebags house once or twice.
    I got to see Pantera for the 1st and last time at Ozzy Fest 2000. Phil was aaaaaaall fucked up, at least he managed to perform well and not fall over. But between songs he was a little wobby and his speak was like "Hey adfjfdjkloiuenlkepoiodkpkpoookjdknmfd...fuck yea!!" I couldn't understand him. Hahahaha:lol:

    If they could hide it maybe's there's some other metal bands that have secret pasts we don't know about. I could just see new wave Slayer or something.

    a lot of "tough guy" pantera fans swear that as soon as Phil joined they got all hard-ass, but obviously this just isn't true, haha

    so what who cares about what they look like then and now ... main thing is that their music's pretty descent and that's what counts ... and if it really sounds heavy then maybe they have become real heavy and its not just a show ...

    Agreed.

    Albums like "Metal Magic" and "Projects in the Jungle" are fucking awesome.

    They didn't hide it very well, considering anyone that's not an idiot or completely new to Metal knows about it.

    Also, when did Phil Anselmo admit to being bisexual?
