Phil Anselmo Reveals First Solo Track
Phil Anselmo, legendary frontman of Pantera and Down, will release his career-first solo album, "Walk Through Exits Only," on July 16 via his own Housecore Records (MRI/Megaforce), Blabbermouth reports. The album was produced by Anselmo and Michael Thompson, and recorded over the past couple of years at Philip's New Orleans studio, Nodferatu's Lair, with his band The Illegals - guitarist Marzi Montazeri (ex-Superjoint Ritual) and drummer José Manuel Gonzales (Warbeast). The first album track, "Usurper's Bastard Rant," is now available for streaming using the SoundCloud widget below (courtesy of RollingStone.Com). "It wasn't about doing a paint-by-numbers thrash or heavy metal record," Anselmo explained about the project. "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." In a recent interview with UK's Terrorizer magazine, Anselmo was asked what prompted him to make a solo CD now. "I am a lover of all sorts of music but really my heart is ... really I love extreme music, underground music, whether it be grindcore, death metal, thrash, black metal, [or whatever other] subgenre, and I find beauty in a lot of this stuff," he replied. "I wanted to do an extreme record that didn't necessarily fit in any of those aforementioned categories, really, but it's metal. It's very tough for me to describe, man. I really wanted to do an extreme record again. I did it out of pure, f--king need - need - and love. I just needed to do it for myself."
