To continue the year-long celebration of the 20th-anniversary edition of PANTERA‘s “Vulgar Display Of Power“, Rhino has announced the first-ever vinyl release of the band’s “Walk” EP. The six-track collection will be available on red and black swirled vinyl as a limited edition of 2,500 copies on November 6 for a suggested retail price of $16.98. The vinyl will be available exclusively at Hastings and FYE stores, as well as a few additional music retailers.
In May, the “Walk” EP was made available for the first time in the U.S. at all digital retail outlets for a suggested list price of $3.99. Previously released in Japan in 1993, the six-track EP includes two “Cervical” remixes of “Walk” by J.G. Thirlwell and “Biomechanical” remixes of both “Fucking Hostile” and “By Demons Be Driven” by Justin K. Broadrick of the band GODFLESH. The EP is rounded out by live versions of two tracks from PANTERA’s previous album “Cowboys From Hell”, the title track and “Heresy”, recorded live in Moscow at the Monsters Of Rock in 1991.

February 25 marked the 20-year anniversary for PANTERA’s “Vulgar Display Of Power”, a landmark album widely acknowledged as one of metal’s most enduring and influential masterworks. Recorded by singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, the album has been certified double platinum by the RIAA and features several of the group’s most iconic songs including “Walk”, “Mouth For War”, “This Love” and “Fucking Hostile”.
To celebrate, Rhino channeled the album’s relentless blitzkrieg of musical aggression onto a two-disc Deluxe Edition. The CD includes the original album remastered and “Piss”, a recently discovered unreleased track from the recording sessions. The DVD contains an unreleased live performance filmed in Italy in September of 1992 plus the three official music videos from the album.
