But „Pantera“was the name of the Band on a hardcore metal tape hisbrother presented him together with his first walkman a littlelater that flashed him and led to a new era of music in hislife. Whilst a stunning record store experience in the late90s he found an album from Public Enemy called„Apocalypse ´91… T he Enemy Strikes Black“- thatcompletely blew his mind.
