Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo recently gave AC/DC's lyrics to 'It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)' a whole new meaning. In a video titled 'Rock 'n' Roll Manifesto,' which you can watch above, Anselmo reads the words to the Australian rockers' 1976 song and reveals a dark side to the lifestyle Bon Scott sings about.
Phil Anselmo has fronted some of metal's best-known bands, but he's ready to step out on his own. The Pantera / Down / Superjoint Ritual frontman has announced that his first solo album, 'Walk Through Exits Only,' is now on schedule for a July 16 release date.
Phil Anselmo has been incredibly open lately about wanting to bury the hatchet with Pantera bandmate and Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul. Anselmo has repeatedly stated that his "door is wide open" for a reconciliation with Vinnie Paul, but in a new interview, the drummer reiterates that he simply has no interest in reconnecting with Anselmo.
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 becam
Pantera's music has long served as inspiration for knocking somebody out, but for parents seeking a more responsible method to put their kids to sleep, a new CD, 'Lullaby Versions of Pantera,' has just been released by Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star.
There used to be this little band that played at Circle in the Square all the time back in the 80's...I think their name was Pantera or something...I wonder whatever happened to those guys? Oh yeah...that's right, they went on to become the biggest and heaviest band of all time. Shreveport and Pantera will forever be linked together. The guys discovered Phil after playing a show at Circle on the Square in '87. The Hirsch was the home to the 'Great Pantera Riot of '95'. This city and the band are inseparable.
The rift between longtime Pantera bandmates Phil Anselmo and Vinnie Paul has been well documented, but that hasn't kept Anselmo from offering olive branches to open communication in the media over the years.
Slayer's Kerry King and Anthrax's Scott Ian recently sat down on Fuse TV to talk about their collaboration with 'Metal Masters 4', their time touring and playing with Pantera, and getting drunk with Dimebag Darrell. You can check out their convo and some performances from MM4 after the jump.
Throughout the past year, the surviving members of Pantera have commented on the possibility of Zakk Wylde filling in for the late Dimebag Darrell if the band were ever to reunite. While it's all been speculation thus far, singer Phil Anselmo now reveals that he recently discussed the topic with Wylde himself.
Godsmack have always been vocal about how much of an influence Pantera had on their career and so it seemed only fitting that when the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival rolled into Pantera’s home state of Texas that the band would pay homage to them at some point during the night.
It's a special night when you can get members of Pantera, Slayer and Anthrax on a stage together, so for those who couldn't make the 'Metal Masters 4' clinic in New York, a video stream has surfaced online to bring you all the hard-hitting goodness.
