Philip Anselmo on Pantera Covering Black Sabbath’s ‘Planet Caravan’ – Exclusive Video
We’ve dedicated this entire week to celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pantera‘s landmark album ‘Far Beyond Driven.’ Thanks to vocalist Philip Anselmo, we’ve taken a deep dive into the album, and now we’re finishing it off with an insider’s look into Pantera’s cover of ‘Planet Caravan’ by Black Sabbath.
“‘Planet Caravan’ was a song that we recorded for a Black Sabbath tribute record and it got rejected because of political reasons between record labels and whatnot,” Anselmo describes. “For us, of course, you think Pantera — we would pick the heaviest Black Sabbath song in the world to cover. But one thing I knew was that those fellas were capable of playing any type of music they could.”
Anselmo continues, “We knew that ‘Far Beyond Driven’ was a beating, listening from song one to the last song. It might be kind of ironic to throw this very well-done, extremely laid-back, mellow, yet semi-popular Black Sabbath song at the end.”
