432.6% PowerMetal's Jimmy Page ROI Factor.

In the previous two posts leading up today, Lockheed dug out some old high school power chord albums, namely: PANTERA... and classic lyrics were included in both posts... Today, is a sad day, as lead guitarist, Diamond Darryl Abbott(DimeBag Darryl) was shot point blank five times on stage, in the head for that matter, dead as a doornail. Of course, this solidifies his legend, confirmation by the 4326 days since I purchased the first album in 1992 c.e. It's where the Fibonacci sequence really starts to take off... Posted by Hello

1992 was a special year. That was the year a certain porcelin doll and I purchased Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power.

The album preaches strength and self-reliance...while boasting some of the most brutal and intricate metal riffs ever recorded. Anselmo's vocals are hoarsely compelling, but Dimebag's guitar work steals the show. It's not the typical palm-muted tripe, either--this guy can flat-out wail.

I remember an article in a guitar magazine with Dime and he was discussing his signature, searing guitar sound. He hits a (seemingly) impossibly high note, then bends it up even higher and lets it soar (as heard at the end of Cemetary Gates). Anyway, he basically wrote in to the magazine, giving step-by-step instructions on how to achieve the sound. He encouraged the people who were successful to buy a six-pack of beer and mail him the receipt, promising to reimburse the first 50. The guy loved to play guitar for anyone who would listen. He will be missed.
