Pantera was part of the downfall of metal.
No offense to those who enjoy the people in the band personally. I’ve met several and they’re good guys.
But turning speed metal into party rock was a fatal move.
It opened the way for the real blight, which is the indie-emo-screamo-weeabo shit we see even in black metal now.
I can’t stand the saccharine, unmasculine, revengeful crap that John Lennon put out. I’m sorry for the loss of George Harrison however.
