Charlie Benante has shared footage captured from his drum riser of Pantera performing Walk at Knotfest Chile.

The clip, which can be viewed below, provides a drummer's eye view of the band playing to an enthusiastic audience of thousands at the festival earlier this month.

He posted the video clip on social media and thanked Pantera's drum tech with the message: "WALKing in Chile. Thanks to Abel Vajello for being the fifth Beatle and filming."

Benante is behind the kit for the new-look Pantera, filling in for the late Vinnie Paul. Zakk Wylde is on guitar in place of the late Dimebag Darrel. They join surviving members Phil Anselmo and Rex Brown.

The band have dates lined up through 2023 and into 2024, and Benante recently said he wouldn't rule out recording new music under the Pantera banner.

The decision to tour under the Pantera banner has divided fans. Although if the Knotfest Chile crowd is anything to go by, the shows have been a success so far.

Rex Brown had to step back from some of the December dates after catching Covid.
