's long-awaited "Mouth for War: Pantera and Beyond
" autobiography has received January 13, 2015 as the official release date.
Described as "a no-holds-barred look inside of Philip's brain, his history with Pantera, the loss of his best friend, Dimebag Darrell, and an unflinching examination into the downward spiral of pain and drug addiction that nearly cost him his life,"
the book was co-written by Corey Mitchell
."From bar band obscurity to the bright spotlight of the world's stage, Anselmo helped lead Pantera to world domination. He soared to the top with the first extreme metal album to debut at #1 on the Billboard music charts with 'Far Beyond Driven' in 1994. He turned a bar-bumping glam metal band into the heaviest, most extreme, and most successful heavy metal unit since Metallica,"
the official description reads."First and foremost, it's not just a Pantera book. Now, Pantera is a gigantic part of my life - let's not ever, ever mix these signals - but it's more a book about myself and how it took to get from all of the peaks, valleys and the in-betweens; that really, really sums things up,"
Anselmo told Artisan News
last year. "There is my perspective, of course, but I think the hardest person I'm gonna be on is myself. Because we all get the cards that we're dealt, and it's up to us to deal with that how we deal with it,"
