This is a vintage promotional t-shirt from the 90s for the heavy metal band Pantera and their sixth studio album, Vulgar Display of Power, released in February 1992. The tee also references the band's previous album released in 1990, Cowboys From Hell, and features lyrics from "Strength Beyond Strength", the first song off their next album released in 1994, Far Beyond Driven.
Vulgar Display of Power, pulls it's name from a quote from the 1973 cult horror film The Exorcist, is considered one of the band's most successful albums. It features some of their heaviest and most well-known tracks like "Walk", "This Love", "Fucking Hostile", and "Mouth for War". The album was even ranked 10th on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of all Time list in 2017.
The powerful and shocking cover art featured on the tee was photographed by Brad Guise, the same photographer who shot their Cowboys From Hell cover. The image features model Sean Cross getting "punched" in the face, which Guise confirmed was a staged shot. Drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, however, liked to spread the rumor that the model was actually punched in the face over and over again, getting paid $10 each time.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. Several tiny holes throughout and missing piece of sleeve, see pics. Double sided print.
