After cracking the top five with its latest release, "Reinventing The Steel," Pantera will try to push the album even further with a new video and its slot on Ozzfest 2000.
Before heading abroad to launch a European tour last week, the modern metal mainstays headed to New Orleans and Hollywood to shoot a video for "Revolution Is My Name" with director Jim Van Bebber. The director and Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo have been friends for some time, and Anselmo has supplied music for some of Van Bebber's work.
This time around, Van Bebber found four child actors to assume the roles of Pantera's various members and mixed that footage with live performance clips of Pantera.
The video debuted on MTV's "Return Of The Rock" last week and is currently in rotation on the channel. The band isn't likely to catch the clip, however, as the group is currently in the U.K. where it plays Wolverhampton on Wednesday and Manchester on Thursday.
Come July, Pantera will be back in the States to hit the road with Ozzy Osbourne, Godsmack, Ministry, P.O.D., Methods Of Mayhem, Incubus, and the rest of Ozzfest 2000. Here's where you can catch it:
