Phil Anselmo: 'I'm The Evel Knievel Of Metal'
Phil Anselmo says his two recent solo tracks are "tame" in comparison to the full length album which is coming soon. You can hear one of his current tracks from a split EP with Warbeast called "Conflict" in the player below. It's insanely heavy already, so we can't want to hear what the full album will bring. In an interview with Crave, Phil talked about how his battle with chronic back pain informed the aggression on his new songs, the first solo releases in his career spanning three decades. "The full-length really touches on a lot of the same stuck-in-my-room, agonizing in f--king pain, what the f--k do I do besides bounce off these f--king walls?" he said. He's not just battling back pain these days. "Not just the back, now. It's my whole f--king body. I've destroyed this f--king skeleton... I'm the Evel Knievel of f--king goddamn metal. "I think anyone who suffers from chronic pain can agree with this - you feel this great significance. What I wanted to capture was that significance, and as a matter of fact, I think that's one of the lyrics on 'Confict'. "You feel like you're the only one, and how unfair it is, and a million different feel-sorry-for-yourself-type feelings. In my better sense of mind, I know that I'm far from alone and far from the worst, and the earth keeps spinning. Everything keeps moving, with or without me. So I guess a lot of these songs are very selfishly hedonistic/defeatist attitude." Phil will hit the road with his main band Down this month. His debut solo album is due in early summer.
