The Top Ten

Vulgar Display of Power
Cowboys from hell was a great album for sure hell there all good but vulgar is the best and right behind that is far beyond driven. I seen them play the far beyond driven album in chicago at the panel room. They had the best moshes right along with slayer these are difficult to do cause they all tear stuff up
Everyone will pretty much have different opinions on this list. It's not like a Megadeth list where 98% of the people vote rust in peace for number 1. All panteras albums are almost equal


Respect all given, I love CFH. It's sort of like Kill 'Em All~A rough and raw release where the band starts and are playing around to find the sound they are. By the second album they know who they are, and with VULGAR they epitomise the name of PANTERA!

2Cowboys from Hell
They consider this one their first true album... and it has great songs like "Cowboys from hell", "Cemetery Gates", "Psycho Holiday", "Heresy", "Domination", "Shattered", "The Sleep", "The Art of Shredding"...


Cemetery gates cannot be beat! It is probably my favorite song by Pantera.
Easily best pantera album the title tracks riff is arguably the best pantera riff ever

3Far Beyond Driven
This album honestly is my favorite. Cemetary Gates is my favorite song of theirs but besides Cowboys From Hell (title track) the rest weren't very good. Also 20 years old this year thought I would add that. 5 Minutes Alone and I'm Broken were two of their best songs both off this album.
Their heaviest album and where they finally perfected the Pantera sound. There are a lot of gems on this album.
This album is frkn' awesome

Good friends id best!

4The Great Southern Trendkill
This is heavy, people only hate this album because Seth Putnam was in one of the songs when it should have been Chino Moreno. Sometimes their fans want more. Anyways, heaviest album and their best after vulgar display of power.
Pantera's heaviest, most underrated and maybe even best album after Vulgar Display of Power
I like this album more than Vulgar Display of Power, my favorite is Cowboys from Hell, but this album is in another level, probably their most experimental album.

5Reinventing the Steel
This album should be number 2 or 3 way better album than great southern and far beyond maybe just maybe even better than cowboys from hell
Best album of their career in my opinion.
Underrated and a good ending but vulgar is the best. I like revoloution is my name it makes them disapear ill cast a shadow and yesterday don't mean sht. Man heaviest album after vulgar and has a funny album cover.

6Official Live: 101 Proof

7Power Metal
It's actually fairly decent especially when compared to Metal Magic and Projects in the Jungle.
Some of the songs are quite good.
Sounds like a mix between Priest and Shout at the Devil era Motley Crue.


This album got me into Pantera so... yes, for me is their best one.

8Metal Magic & I Am The Night
Not as Glam as the first two albums, and has some elements of Speed Metal and Heavy Metal.


9Projects In The Jungle
