In an interview for Fan Pass with Matt Pinfield (you can check out the whole interview at the bottom of the page) at the Rock on the Range Phil Anselmo talks about a new Pantera reunion:
There is a great percentage of me that says, ‘This generation deserves it. Let’s do it.’ And then there’s a reservation in me that says, ‘You know what, man? Legacies get passed down. This, that, the other. Maybe we should leave it alone and just let it be part of lore and the history and whatnot.
There is nothing for sure yet but it seems that there will be a meeting with the band members where they will decide if this reunion is going to happen or not:
Yeah, yeah, yeah. No doubt. We are on tour with f–king Black Label Society right now, and don’t ever underestimate the power of conversation between Zakk and I.
And I know Rex [Brown] is a smart man. But at the end of the day, there would have to be a meeting at a table – or without a table – between Rex, Vince [Paul] and I, and there would have to be a big-time understanding between the two of us before anything happens at all.
Phil actually said that it is very possible for Panetara to collaborate with Zakk Wylde for their reunion:
If there was ever a proper presentation, like, OK, Pantera is back together, Zakk’s on guitar, that would be a massive feeling. That would be outrageous. And I would go to war. I would be in the best shape possible.
Also recently Zakk, Phill and Rex went on stage together in order to perform Pantera’s I’m Broken, so if you are curious how this new Pantera collaboration will sound like, check out the video below!
