They really didn't, though.

Still, solid band. Slaughter in the Vatican is a belter.
Personally, I couldn't care less for The Law, though.

Pantera pretty much did steal their sound,it's a dumbed down version but it's still pretty much the same deal as far as both bands second albums go.

Yet The Law came out a good three weeks after VDoP - does this mean Exhorder ripped off Pantera after all?


I wouldn't say that "sounding somewhat alike" equals "ripping off". I really don't know how to argue any further except telling you to take a closer look at the riffs. I don't see the similarities, at least not a whole lot of them.
Yes, Pantera basically grew balls because of the existence of Exhorder, but that band's riffs are still much more complex and less groove-based, with none of Pantera's riffs sounding like a throwaway Exhorder riff, not even in spirit.

Not to mention that the few similarities there might be are all found in the riffing department - as I've already pointed out, Kyle Thomas basically started to sound like Anselmo, not vice-versa.


tl;dr: Slaughter in the Vatican is killer and we should stop talking about that other band.

Weird that I was just listening to Exhorder's Slaughter album about the time this thread was created. I Do not hear alot of their sound in Pantera's but this is a great band irrespective of who ripped off whom (or did not)

I dunno, i doubt that they would sound the same without Exhorder.And Exhorder is basically just a good version of Pantera in my books.I hear allot of similarities all over the place,and if they were in contact they could of been hearing material from each other way before the albums were released(they were located fairly close to one another).But i also barely listen to either of the bands anymore so maybe i haven't paid close enough attention.

Pantera's hair metal stuff was better anyway. Metal Magic FTW.
