Pantera made their live debut on December 2 at Mexico’s Hell & Heaven Metal Fest with the lineup of vocalist Phil Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown alongside Black Label Society guitarist Zakk Wylde and Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante. The band sounded fantastic (we’ve got our own footage right here), and could potentially work on new material at some point.
“Oh man… who knows?” said Benante in a recent interview. “Creatively, if we are just flowing and getting going, and things are starting to be really good, musically speaking, you never know what could happen. I’ve got tons of riffs. But we’re putting the cart before the horse. I like the positivity there, but I don’t know how people would react to that either at this point. I think first, let’s get out there and establish that we can play. I’m always open to the future.”
