PANTERA TO PREMIERE NEW VIDEO FOR “PISS,” THE LOST TRACK FROM VULGAR DISPLAY OF POWER SESSIONS
Featured On The CD/DVD Deluxe Edition Of Vulgar Display Of Power,
Available May 18
While combing the Pantera vaults for the 20th anniversary reissue of Vulgar Display of Power, drummer Vinnie Paul made an astounding discovery: “Piss,” an incendiary blast of vintage Pantera from the original recording sessions that had long been forgotten.
For the “Piss” video, Pantera put out a call through their Facebook page for fans to submit home videos of them rocking out to the band or attend a video shoot in Los Angeles. The resulting video is an amazing collection of fans of all ages, from around the world, moshing, jumping, punching, kicking, and just plain rocking out to Pantera. The video, directed by Zach Merck, also features some amazing slow-motion shots that recreate the face punch from the iconic cover of Vulgar Display Of Power.
“‘Piss’ is the only unheard complete Pantera track in existence. It was recorded at the same time as Vulgar Display of Power and it’s 100 percent Pantera with attitude and our signature groove!” said Paul. “After mixing it, I can’t believe it didn’t make the record! So it’s 2012 and 20 years later and new Pantera music has been delivered. Cheers!”
Vulgar Display Of Power is a landmark album widely acknowledged as one of metal’s most enduring and influential masterworks. Recorded by singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul, the album has been certified double platinum by the RIAA and features several of the group’s most iconic songs including “Walk,” “Mouth For War,” “This Love,” and “Fucking Hostile.” In addition to “Piss,” the 2-disc deluxe edition, out May 18, also features a newly remastered version of the album as well as a DVD containing an unreleased live performance filmed in Italy in September of 1992 plus the three official music videos.
