LOS ANGELES – With their 1990 album Cowboys From Hell, Pantera debuted their signature sound and invigorated the metal scene while enlisting legions of devoted fans around the world. For the next decade, the band continued to ascend to the top of the music world, earning four platinum albums and, with 1994’s Far Beyond Driven, a #1 debut on the Billboard album chart.

To celebrate Pantera’s raucous legacy, Rhino will release both a new boxed set and single disc compilation. THE COMPLETE STUDIO ALBUMS 1990-2000, compiled of Cowboys From Hell (1990), Vulgar Display Of Power (1992), Far Beyond Driven (1994), The Great Southern Trendkill (1996), and Reinventing The Steel (2000). Two versions of the collection will be released on December 11, one a 5-CD set and the other a limited edition 5-LP set on colored vinyl.

Prior to the release of the boxed set, Rhino will also release HISTORY OF HOSTILITY, a nine-track Pantera primer that includes some of Pantera’s most legendary tracks from all five studio albums. It will be released on CD and LP on October 30.

Philip Anselmo joined Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul, and Rex Brown in 1987 to form a new, harder-hitting version of Pantera. The line-up made its debut in 1990 on Cowboys From Hell. The album’s visceral combination of jackhammer grooves, heavyweight riffs and guttural howls made Pantera heroes to headbangers everywhere. The album went on to become one of the most influential metal albums of all time.

For its hotly anticipated follow-up, Pantera returned in 1992 with Vulgar Display of Power. It refined the heavier-than-heavy aesthetic from the previous album on crushing songs like “Walk” and “Mouth For War,” but also showcased the band’s range on the haunting ballad, “Hollow.” The album was certified double platinum and spent 79 weeks on the charts, longer than any other Pantera album.

The band had its greatest success in 1994 with the release of Far Beyond Driven, still the most extreme album to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard top album chart. Several songs from the album became the band’s most iconic including “5 Minutes Alone,” “I’m Broken,” and their cover of Black Sabbath’s “Planet Caravan.”

The Great Southern Trendkill arrived in 1996 and peaked at #2 on the charts. The platinum-certified album contains some of Pantera’s darkest lyrics (“Suicide Note Pt. 1”) and fastest tempos (“Sandblasted Skin.”) In 2000, the band released what would be its final studio album, Reinventing the Steel. It peaked at #4 on the charts and was certified gold. It features several classic cuts including “Revolution Is My Name” and “Goddamn Electric.”
