«A Wild Photo History… It presents arresting photos … and shows [Pantera’s] playful side both on and offstage.” —Rolling Stone
“[Giron’s] Pantera photos offer more than just a gallery of eye-popping rock photography, but a spontaneous and unguarded chronicle of how four kids from the South became one of the biggest bands in American metal, from their lean and hungry origins in Dallas, to playing in front of half a million screaming Russians in Moscow, to their final tour.” —Team Rock

Pantera was one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time—and arguably the most important metal band of the 1990s. Pantera’s 1994 album, Far Beyond Driven, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. Pantera has sold over twenty-five million albums worldwide! In the United States alone, four Pantera albums were certified platinum (one million sold) and two more went gold (five hundred thousand sold).
Joe Giron shot photographs of Pantera since 1983 and throughout the rest of the band’s career. He also photographed many other artists, including AC/DC, David Bowie, Gwen Stefani, Van Halen, and U2, just to name a handful, for many of the world’s leading rock magazines. Today, his niche is in the gaming industry as the photographer for the World Poker Tour and head of the official photography team at the World Series of Poker. He lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.
