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'.
In 2013, legendary Pantera / Down vocalist Philip Anselmo and best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell launched an event like no other: the Housecore Horror Film Festival. The Austin, Texas, event screened well over 100 films and showcased some of metal's finest acts over a three-day period in October. In a new interview premiering exclusively on Loudwire, both Anselmo and Mitchell reflect on the fest's first incarnation following the recent announcement that it will be back again in 2014.
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.
Phil Anselmo's Housecore Horror Film Festival is upon us! The Austin, Texas, music and horror film festival will open its doors on Oct. 24 and will not relent until Oct. 27. The fest is truly unique in its personality, and during Phil Anselmo's recent visit to our studios, the man behind the idea revealed everything we should look forward to from the fest.
