Power Metal is the fourth studio album by heavy metal band Pantera, released in 1988 on Metal Magic Records. The album showcases a style closer to thrash metal rather than hard rock, which formed the basis of the band's previous three albums; although traces of glam metal can still be heard.

Notably, Phil Anselmo makes his first appearance on vocals (having replaced former vocalist Terry Glaze), as well as guitarist Diamond Darrell, who performs vocals on "P·S·T·88"… read more

    I wasn't sure if this would be the best place to ask for (a) recommendation(s), though I just recently purchased this album and I was going to use this as the means to discern whether or not I should get one of this album's predecessors. I love Power Metal, so I was thinking I probably would get one of Pantera's other 80's releases. From what I've read most fans consider "I Am The Night" to be the best Glaze-era album encompassing both musicianship and production quality, though I was just curious if anyone has any contradictory opinions as to which of the albums encompassed by that era that I should get? As I have no idea what Terry Glaze will sound like, I was also curious how most would define his vocals? The only adjective I've seen them characterized by is "raspy", so I was hopeful some other fans could be more descriptive and/or maybe compare him to some other prominent metal vocalists? Provided this post is met with some helpful responses, thanks in advance!

    I could never get into Pantera's groove stuff, but this is amazing, so much like judas priest and megadeth, I love it. I take back all that hate towards Pantera \\m/
