Genre Power Metal - christangrant

3 Eternity

Either power metal or prog metal. But anyway, it's a good name. - zxm

@christangrant - yes, Eternity was considered but when Pantera was founded they weren't a groove metal band. They eventually named the band after a car - Dimebag Darrell's car, a De Tomaso Pantera. - Metal_Treasure

Eternity, with lyrics about Time and Space... hmm, I would expect prog metal and not groove metal.
There's a Canadian prog metal /prog death metal band called Into Eternity. - Metal_Treasure

Actually this was one of the first names suggested for Pantera. Vinnie Paul has said that this was one of the names he wanted to name his band (Pantera) - christangrant
