Today, Feb. 25, 2017, marks the 25th anniversary of Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power, and Loudwire is proud to present an original three-part documentary focusing on the landmark album.

As part of our new Loudwire Legacy series, we examine the album that many credit for saving heavy metal during a transitional time for the genre. The documentary features brand-new interviews with all three surviving members of Pantera (Philip Anselmo, Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown), the album's producer, Terry Date, and the album's cover art photographer Brad Guice.

Also featured are metal luminaries Mike Portnoy, Slayer's Kerry King, Megadeth's Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson, Korn's Brian 'Head' Welch, Black Label Society's Zakk Wylde and several others, all professing their admiration of Vulgar Display of Power and the impact it had on heavy metal.

The documentary is divided into three parts: 'The Making Of,' 'The Impact' and 'The Secret Story,' with the last one debunking a long-running urban legend about the iconic image on the album's cover.

So, in celebration of one of metal's all-time great albums, check out the complete three-part Loudwire Legacy documentary on Vulgar Display of Power by clicking the button below.
