>>103576183>Pantera is because that version of the band had not released a record on a major label and most of those could be considered demos from a local band. They weren't widely distributed records. They still weren't really even touring for those records either, outside of Texas and the bordering states.
Thats because Texas still today has its own thing seperate from Nashville or LA.
Pantera was already rich just from touring the Texas circuit.
Thats why they never moved to LA, LA came to them.
