The Kerrang! podcast conducted an interview with former PANTERA and current DOWN frontman Philip Anselmo at this year's Download festival, which was held June 14-16 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
PANTERA was inducted into the Kerrang! Hall Of Fame at this year's Kerrang! Awards, which was held on June 13 at London, England's Troxy Club.
During his acceptance speech, former PANTERA singer Philip Anselmo paid tribute to the legacy of bandmate "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, who was shot dead onstage in 2004.
Anselmo will release his career-first solo album, "Walk Through Exits Only", on July 16 via his own Housecore Records (MRI/Megaforce). "Walk Through Exits Only" will be available digitally, on CD and on vinyl.
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) — "Walk Through Exits Only" is abrasive, aggressive, anthemic and 100% Anselmo. The album's eight songs are as unstrained as it gets, from "Battalion Of Zero" to "Usurper's Bastard Rant", to the album's title track that goes against the grain and right through the exits. Brash, brutal guitars cut through punishing percussion as Anselmo screams with uncompromising ferocity and uncontainable fire.
