When it comes to rock bands with local connections, it is IMPOSSIBLE to have that conversation without mentioning Pantera. A lot of the band's major milestones took place right here in Shreveport at Circle in the Square. This is where the band hooked up with Phil Anselmo. Phil played his first ever gig with Vinnie, Dimebag, and the boys here. The history is rich and deep. And now, for the first time ever, we are going to get the full story straight from Phil when he releases his new autobiography called 'Mouth For War: Pantera and Beyond'.
Let's face it. When it comes to hard rock and metal, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has dragged their feet over the years with inducting some of the big names of the genre, so with that in mind, Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul says he's not confident that the groundbreaking metal band will have their named called.

Check it out, enjoy, and have a hell of a time!

Yesterday, Phil Anselmo and Down released their first taste of their up coming EP 'Down IV Part II' called "We Knew Him Well". And, as most of you know, Shreveport and Phil Anselmo have history that goes way back in the day to his first band Razor White and his first gig ever with Pantera. So, I got to thinking about what some of my favorite Phil Anselmo tunes are. He's been in so many killer bands including Pantera, Down, SuperJoint Ritual, and more. So, I put together a playlist of some of my favorite tunes. Let me know what you think and feel free to share of your Phil memories from the past 30 years.

Last night in California, the biggest names in Metal gathered to celebrate the heaviest music in the world. As in years past, the festivities got kicked off with a workshop from the masters giving out some tips and tricks and ended with a full blow, star-studded jam session of epic proportions!
"Walk Through Exits Only" is eight of the hardest, heaviest, most brutal songs you'll ever hear coming out of a set of speakers -- just what we'd expect from the Godfather of American Metal. And soon, Shreveport will get to hear it live.
