Pantera’s Dimebag Darrell “Pure Raw Energy”

Missing Dimebag today on his birthday.

Dimebag is quite possibly the finest combination of precision and power the 6-string has ever seen. His chops defined the “power groove” that drove Pantera to the top of the metal music world in the 90s. Dime’s leads were beyond shred. His rhythm work infections.

Those who knew Dimebag Darrell Abbott were struck by his genuine love of life and music., nobody lived it louder!!!

This blog picture from 2005 is from our original Dimebag Darrell Rock Iconz® Statue design. This sells for crazy $ on the secondary markets when you can find it mint in box.

Shred in peace brother…

Pantera fans will be glad to know that we have been hard at work on a new Rock Iconz® Ltd. Edition statue set for Pantera. We will be rolling that out this fall…StayTuned.

Here’s’ a link to see some of KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz®, 3D Vinyl® and On Tour™ Collectibles officially licensed with Pantera.

Pantera – Cowboys from Hell Era Road Case Box Design

Hopefully you saw the launch the newest additon to our Rock Iconz On Tour® Ltd. Edition Collectible Series, Pantera Cowboys from Hell Road Case and Stage Prop. This limited editon is a super short production run of only 500. It’s almost SOLD OUT as we write this blog.

Thought we would share the package design artwork that was approved by Pantera managemnt last week. Note the snap shots on the back from the Pantera Home Video 2. If you a Pantera from fan “the day,”  you know these videos by heart. But in case you came to the party late and have not seen them, these were home videos taken by the band, a bunch by Dimebag Darrell, he was VLOGGING before there was such a thing. The snap shots show the band buiding the huge MF Leaf stage props and some of the live shots from the show here they brought this on stage…so cool and goofy fun.

You can Pre-Order the Pantera Cowboys from Hell Road Case Here.

It ships with the distressed road case, MF Leaf Stage Prop an the Cownboys from Hell stage backdrop.

Pantera Album “Far Beyond Driven” – The Day It Ruled the Music World

This week in 1994, Pantera’s “Far Beyond Driven” shocked the music world by debuting at #1 on the Billboard Charts. This was no real surprise to metal music fandom, but it did jolt the popular music world. It was the 1st time a metal record had debuted in the charts at top slot. Even more amazing, is that Phillip Anselmo, Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown had not taken step back on the aggression meter to achieve mass market success. Quite the opposite. The band had ratcheted things up a notch from  of “Vulgar Display of Power” to deliver something even more brutal.

We have honored this Pantera heavy metal masterpiece in our 3D Vinyl® Limited Edition Collector Series. 3D Vinyl brings the great album art to life in limited edition statues. Each piece is hand cast and detailed and ships with a hand numbered certificate of authenticity. All KnuckleBonz® work is officially licensed. Limited to only 1994, the statue is a desktop mount design. Dimension at 7″ Wide X 8.5″ Deep X 8″ Tall.

Production is complete and these statues have arrived at the US ports and are gong thru customs now. Hope to be ship later in April.

“Far Beyond Anniversary” – Pantera Far Beyond Driven Album for 3D Vinyl

On this day in 1994 Pantera showed the music world that metal was not just a “sub-genre”, but was #1 in music. Pantera’s  “Far Beyond Driven” became the 1st true heavy metal record to debut in the US. What’s super impressive is that Phillip Anselmo, Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul Abbott and Rex Brown took no steps backwards to achieve this commercial success. They actually turned up the heaviness…I’m Broken!!!

This album art proved a real challenge for our 3D Vinyl Limited Edition Statue Series. We decided to stray for the tradition 12×12 album oriented format and created a hybrid that brings the great cover photographic treatment to a desk or shelf mount display. This KnuckleBonz collectible is still in pre-order and super hot. Check it out here to be one of only 1994 fans that will own this piece of metal music art: https://knucklebonz.com/product-category/pantera/

The 1st wave for Pantera Far Beyond Driven is finished and in route to our US warehouse. We expect it to hit the US ports in April and then must clear customs to begin the short truck ride to the KnuckleBonz warehouse. Stay tuned here for update…DOn;t Miss Out!

29 Years Since Pantera’s “Vulgar Display of Power” – 3D Vinyl Sale Today ONLY!

29 Years since the Pantera “Vulgar Display of Power” Release – 3D Vinyl Sale Today ONLY !

Hard to believe it’s been 29 years since Pantera dropped “Vulgar Display of Power” on us. We remember the heavy metal scene struggling with it’s identity at that time, with some of the heavier bands embracing the grunge or “alternative” brands. The Cowboys from Hell where having none of that and were flying the metal and power groove flags high. From the opening riff on “Mouth of War” to the heavy flow of the final track “Hollow”, this record was an instant classic.  A perfect record, that has happened only a few times in hard rock/heavy metal history. The amazing musicianship of Phillip Anslemo, Rex Brown,  Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul Abbott was on full display.  But, the meaning of these songs went further than many metal tracks. It hard to imagine how relevant some lyrical lines would still be today “Be Yourself, By Yourself, Stay Away from Me!” Can the world today be summed up any better?

The KnuckleBonz® 3D Vinyl® Limited Edition Statue for Pantera Vulgar Display of Power is available now and on SALE today only to mark the 29th anniversary of the release.

“Far Beyond Production” – Pantera’s New Far Beyond Driven 3D Vinyl® Collectible Statue

Here’s a quick shot from the KnuckleBonz factory production floor of Pantera “Far Beyond Driven” 3D Vinyl® Limited Edition Collectible Statue. Picture here shows the shading step to get the dark colors into the sculpted textures on the skull and base. That is done by hand, using special paint and a skilled artist with a rag to wipe away the proper amount of color. Not high-tech, but gets the effect we want. This production has gone along fairly smoothly. No real Covid-19 impact on this production team; we can’t say that across productions this year. Twisted Sister’s production was interrupted for a 2nd time last week pushing the ship dates for that project back.
