Phil Anselmo to Release ‘War of the Gargantuas’ Split with Warbeast

Housecore

Legendary Pantera / Down vocalist Phil Anselmo is set to add another record to his impressive library of musical contributions. Anselmo will be unveiling his solo material on a new split titled ‘War of the Gargantuas’ with the thrashers of Warbeast.

Anselmo and Warbeast will each contribute two songs to the split, which will contain the first official solo material from Anselmo in his near 30-year run. “This split is a glimpse into the future of both my solo project and ultimate thrash metallers Warbeast,” begins Anselmo. “The title of the split is War of the Gargantuas and it is fitting on many levels because of our combined love for the ’60s Japanese film of the same name, the power of our combined musical output(s) and our humorous affection that plays out within each of our ‘Gargantuan’ personalities.”

Anselmo continues, “Both Warbeast and myself have full length LPs that will be released shortly after this is released, but this split is unique musically. It is a time capsule; a loud pause ‘til we both release our full length products. Enjoy the destruction of music!”

Adds Warbeast guitarist Scott Shelby, “These two songs we have on ‘War of the Gargantuas’ were the next level after ‘Krush The Enemy. They’ve been a staple in our set list for the last two years. These songs are a pure demonstration of our unique Texas thrash metal style.”

Meanwhile, Down and Warbeast have just announced dates for a 2013 U.S. leg of their joint tour.
