Sunday Old School: Exhorder, Creating the Sound That Pantera Perfected
Band Photo: Exhorder (?)
New Orleans extreme metal band Exhorder has often been cited for creating the sound that Pantera made famous. While the sound on their two classic albums, "Slaughter in the Vatican" (1990) and "The Law" (1992), was a little more extreme, sounding more like a thrashy death metal band than Pantera, the band complained of the final mix and did not approve of it. To be honest, they were still more extreme than Pantera and other thrash/groove bands that would rise to stardom in the 90s. The band broke up in 1992, still fairly underground, meaning many of today's metal heads may never have even heard of them.
Exhorder frontman Kyle Thomas went on to front other bands such as Floodgate, Trouble, and Alabama Thunderpussy among other less notable bands.
Exhorder reunited for a few shows in 2008 and announced their intention to re-record some new material as well as produce new material.
Here is a classic Exhorder video of "Slaughter In The Vatican" performed in Heidelberg on October 9, 1992, with a bonus video after the jump.
