Phil Anselmo Talks Pantera [AUDIO]

Formed in 1981, Pantera went on to become a legendary musical force. Recording nine albums (the first three – recorded before frontman Phil Anselmo came aboard – were more ‘glam rock’ than the metal they became known for) that sold more than 20 million copies, they were still questionably at the top of their game when they called it quits in 2003. The breakup of Pantera was devastating to the metal community, but hopes of an eventual reunion were shattered when guitarist Dimebag Darrell was killed onstage in Columbus, Ohio on December 8, 2004.

Dimebag’s murder only exacerbated the bad blood within the former members of the band, and until recently, and mention of a ‘reunion’ without Dime was often met with a string of obscenities or threats of violence.

It appears though, that in the past couple of years, differences have been (somewhat) settled, and Rita Haney (Dime’s girlfriend) and Phil both say they are on speaking terms again. That being said, reunion talks (sans Dime, of course) are popping up again.

Phil spoke on that topic, and much more, in a recent interview with Wikimetal. Check out the interview here:
