As Phil Anselmo and Rex Brown

Well, the word on the inside has been for some time now that Pantera is officially through. That is, Pantera as Phil Anselmo, Rex Brown, Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul. Also rumored is that Pantera is still bound to Elektra for two more records, which usually means you can count on another live album, and a greatest hits. But who knows – time will tell. It has yet to be confirmed.

What CAN be confirmed at this time is the recent interview that guitarist Dimebag Darrell did with Guitar World Magazine (March Issue):

”What's up with PANTERA? I'd like to know myself. I thought Pantera would be the Rolling Stones of heavy metal, but PHIL and REX seem content with doin' their own stuff.

”It's really weird, but this is the clear-headed, honest truth: they've up and left us hangin' and won't let us know their intentions or future plans. For the last 20 years, my brother VINNIE and I have put our heart and soul into Pantera and we never thought this situation would ever happen to us. By now I thought for sure we would've done another record, but they don't seem to care how it affects Vinnie and I, or the road crew or, most of all, all the Pantera fans that have been so fuckin' awesomely great to us for so long. We've made several attempts to talk to those guys and they keep putting us off. This is not a situation we've created--it's a situation we've been forced into.

”Bottom line, for Vinnie and me it's all about the music, kickin' ass and havin' a good time. So we've got together with some of our close buds and formed a new band called NEW FOUND POWER. The record is almost done and will be out soon. We've put 110 percent into it, just like we always do, so I guarantee you won't be let down.”

-Dimebag Darrell

Word has it that the vocalist is Patrick Lachman, guitarist for Diesel Machine, ex-Halford, and filling bass duties will be ex-Jerry Cantrell guitarist Shawn Matthews.

We’ll give you all the confirmed info as it comes in.
