PHILIP ANSELMO Featured On DVD Focusing On Dallas/Ft. Worth Metal Underground

Bruce Corbitt (RIGOR MORTIS, TEXAS METAL ALLIANCE) has spent the last few months working with 12 Pound Productions on a DVD that is based on the birth of the Dallas/Ft. Worth metal underground.

A promo sample of the DVD taken from the RIGOR MORTIS short tour with ARSON ANTHEM back in December 2007 can be viewed below. Philip Anselmo (PANTERA, DOWN, ARSON ANTHEM) joined RIGOR MORTIS on stage at all three shows to sing "Cattle Mutilations". At the final show in New Orleans, Bruce Corbitt motioned for Phil to come out to sing the final verse of "Demons". This wasn't planned, this wasn't rehearsed and this wasn't even talked about. This was just simply metal!
