singer and current Down
frontman Phil Anselmo
has officially revealed the details regarding his debut solo record "Walk Through Exit Only."
The album will see its release on July 16 via Anselmo's own Housecore Records label featuring a total of eight new tracks. You can check out the cover artwork below.
With Michael Thompson
and Anselmo himself at the helm of production, the album was recorded during the last couple of years at the NODferatu's Lair studio in New Orleans. The rest of the recording lineup features The Illegals
band consisting of guitarist Marzi Montazeri
and Jose Manuel "Blue" Gonzales
"It wasn't about doing a paint-by-numbers thrash or heavy metal record,"
the singer said in an official statement. "It's an angry album that only I could do. I don't see anybody else out there screaming about the same shit I'm screaming about. On this album, there isn't any wordplay, there isn't any hidden message, it's all right there in front of you."
Some of the song titles include "Battalion of Zero," "Usurper's Bastard Rant"
and the title track. Live dates will also follow, with plans for a major North American this summer.
