On August 19th, 1994, Pantera were supporting that March's Far Beyond Driven and headlining the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York. Sepultura were supposed to play in support, but frontman Max Cavalera had busted up his knee, requiring surgery, and as a result, his band were forced to cancel their appearance.
Philip Anselmo and Co. — being true fans of the Brazilian heavy-metal pioneers — were not about to let their absence go unnoticed. In addition to shouting Sepultura out onstage and explaining Max's injury, Pantera tore through an all-too-brief cover of the group's iconic anthem "Refuse/Resist" off Chaos A.D., which had been released just the year before.
They sounded great doing so, with Anselmo adding an extra guttural grit to the vocals, and his bandmates singing their teeth into the roiling groove. The audio would later be released on the bootleg, Support the Madmen, but fan-filmed video has also made it online. Watch above.
