Man i have talked about this with friends family and even random people in chat rooms what genre of metal would you classify Pantera as man. My opinion is groove metal

Yeeeep. Anyone who calls them thrash metal probably doesn't listen to a lot of thrash metal. Thrash has a pretty consistent sound across a slew of bands and Pantera sticks out of those like a sore thumb, they clearly were doing something different. CFH is on the borderline and things get interesting if you take into account their prior albums, but no-one does.

^Pretty much this. Always annoyed me when people called Pantera "thrash."

I may be wrong, but I thought Vinne Paul coined the term groove metal.

Is "Exhorder clone" considered a genre?
How about...just metal?

Ya I'd say they are just "Metal" but you could definitely call them "Groove Metal" as well. Physco Holiday and some riffs in A New Level are great examples of the groove aspect.

Groove metal for sure. The drum beats just groove.
