Bright Brewery Inversion Imperial Hazy IPA x Pantera – Vulgar Display Of Power
A HOPPY DISPLAY OF POWER AND A VULGAR DISPLAY OF MUSIC PERFECTION
The next pick comes from a real heavy hitter in the metal world during the 80’s and 90’s, and a brew that hits equally hard. The album is “Vulgar Display Of Power” from @panteraofficial. The album is the sixth studio release from the band, and is the most well received and best selling album they’ve released.
The title comes from the 1973 film “The Exorcist”, where the line "That's much too vulgar display of power, Karras!" was spoken by Spoken by Satan during his possession of Regan, as a refusal to prove his power by such unsubtle means as making things fly about a room.
Due to all the hard rock and grunge music being made at the time; Pantera thought it was important to make an album was that built on the momentum that had driven “Cowboys from Hell“ to capturing the imagination of the metal hordes. As producer Terry Date says, “Pantera wanted to make the heaviest record of all time.”
The album was hugely popular amongst fans and critics; Dimebag Darrell's guitar work on the album was praised and the use of heavy riffs to set the tone for the album. Phil Anselmo's vocals also changed from previous releases, with the use deeper growls and powerful vocals to accompany the catchy riffs and aggressive lyrics proving popular.
Now for the beer, and a heavy hitting album needs a heavy hitting brew. Our friends from @brightbrewery have the best heavy hitter with their High Density Hop Charge Hazy IPA “Inversion”. High Density Hop Charge is a process where the hops are made into a concentrate; similar to cordial to force into the beer with amplifies the hop flavour. It’s a really interesting use of Hops, and makes the beer pretty amazing. The use of a High Density Hop Charge combination of Citra Incognito, El Dorado pellets, Amarillo Cryo hops and Simcoe Cryo hops really soars like a great Dimebag Darrell guitar solo.
