Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power

One song from this album is kind of like my birthday song, I like to listen to it on my birthday. It’s called ‘A New Level’. It’s uplifting! A New Level of confidence, and power! Also the sound is very like, tight, and somehow special. The guitars sound like a chainsaw, it’s a very powerful album. We used to play Pantera songs when we were rehearsing [with childhood band Masterpiece]. I don’t listen to metal so much anymore, but this winter I went to see one metal concert in Berlin, it was a band called Abigail from Japan. They’re said to be ‘the most evil band in Japan’. It was very refreshing, I felt born again!
