Philip Anselmo Talks Past Drug Use + Pantera’s ‘Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks’ – Exclusive Video
We continue our series of exclusive Pantera ‘Far Beyond Driven’ 20th anniversary videos with Philip Anselmo‘s recollection of ‘Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks.’ As the title may suggest, ‘Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks’ isn’t focused on the happiest of concepts, as Anselmo explains in this clip.
‘Far Beyond Driven’ is absolutely packed with killer tracks, so to celebrate the album’s newly released 20th anniversary edition, we’re rolling out a total of 10 videos this week from the viewpoint of Philip Anselmo.
“I think it was a foreshadowing of the fear that I felt of not being the same,” Anselmo begins on ‘Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks.’ “I know for a fact, I guess, that I dabbled in pain pills and stuff like that because I was miserable, and that’s always a friggin’ dead end, dead road, a terrible path to take. But at the time, I didn’t have any other answers.”
Anselmo continues to speak about his past drug use in correlation with ‘Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks,’ so be sure to watch the video above for Phil’s full story. Stay tuned for more exclusive Philip Anselmo videos coming out this week.
