Metal Insider’s Top 5: Unique Covers Of Songs From ‘Vulgar Display Of Power’

Posted by on February 27, 2012

Metal Insider’s Top 5 is a column where we count down the top five of…well basically anything.

In case you missed it, Pantera’s seminal album Vulgar Display Of Power was released on February 25, 1992. While 1990’s Cowboys From Hell was the first of the band’s albums to be released nationally, Vulgar Display Of Power was far and away the band’s most popular album, having sold over 2 million copies, and vaulting the band into metal’s elite. While there’s tons of people we could talk to about how influential the band’s sixth album was, we thought it might be best to look at five different takes on songs from the album to show the breadth of the Pantera’s Power.


5. A7X with Vinnie Paul performing “Mouth For War”:


It’s no secret that Pantera is one of Avenged Sevenfold’s biggest influences. Not only have they recorded a cover of “Walk,” but have performed the Pantera classic numerous times. However, during their performance at the 2011 Revolver Golden Gods Awards, A7X changed things up a bit by playing “Mouth For War” with Vinnie Paul himself. This may be the least bizarre cover out of the five listed here, but it’s a special performance none the less.
