Cataloguing My Metal Collection Pt. 66
ORIGIN: Arlington, TX (United States)
TITLE: Vulgar Display of Power
LABEL: Atlantic Records
GENRE: Groove Metal
FAVORITE SONG: "Mouth for War"
NOTES: This is the album that really caused groove metal to take over as the most popular metal subgenre for a little while. The music was much more simplified on this release from the power/thrash metal of the previous release. Dimebag Darrell's riffs and Phil Anselmo's tough-guy snarl were the driving forces of this release and "Walk" proved to be a very popular song. I just do not care much for this album.
