In the latest installment of "Converse x Decibel," former PANTERA and current DOWN frontman Philip Anselmo discusses boxing, running Housecore Records and living in New Orleans. Check it out below.
Anselmo and Housecore Records thrashers WARBEAST recently announced that they will release a new split album entitled "War Of The Gargantuas". The split has an official release date of January 8, 2013 and will include two songs from each artist. This album serves as the first release of any solo work by Anselmo during the span of his nearly 30-year legacy.
Anselmo's full-length solo debut, "Walk Through Exits Only", will be released in early 2013 via Housecore. He previously stated about the music on the CD, "It's really not my place to say it's death metal or it's extreme thrash or black metal, I'm not gonna put it in a category. It is extreme, though, in its own right. Anything that was completely traditional, I would stop it and fuck with it a little, make sure it wasn't so paint-by-numbers, because that's the last thing I wanna do, and as a matter of fact, I believe that's what people will be expecting." He continued, "If you enjoyed stuff in the past, then I think you 'll really enjoy the fucking solo record and people who still to this day [say], 'Ah I wish Phil would sing more. He's got such a pretty voice when he sings' then its gonna be a gigantic fucking letdown. [laughs]"
