It’s happening. It really happens. Pantera are currently in Mexico City gearing up for their first show in over 21 years, which will take place tonight (December 2) at Hell & Heaven Metal Fest. It’s the groove metal band’s first show with their new lineup — core members Philip Anselmo and Rex Brown joined by old friends Charlie Benante (Anthrax) and Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society) — and hours before they play , fans had already flocked to their sound check to hear what to expect later in the evening.
Watch footage above of Pantera tearing through their 1990 classic ‘Cowboys From Hell’. The video quality isn’t great and the fans were far from the stage, but it’s damn Pantera soundchecking – in 2022!
