“OoOoOoOoOo, I’m scared of monsters,” Philip Anselmo bellows with his sweet baritone pipes in this exclusive reading of The Monster at the End of this Book.

Pantera’s lyrics are all about rendering people unconscious, but Anselmo takes it to an even newer level in this video. The legendary singer decided to show a side of himself that only his nieces and nephews get to see… and it’s called Uncle Fun. So grab the kids, throw them under the covers and leave them the laptop, because Phil is about to put them to sleep.

Philip Anselmo’s emotive voice and masterful storytelling abilities are on full display here. The musician cautiously proceeds through this classic Sesame Street tale, where the one and only Grover desperately attempts to stop readers from getting to the final page. Phil, not being one to run from a frightening situation, guides young bookworms through the story with diligence… all the way to the monster at the end of the book.

Don’t be afraid, just hit “play” on the video above. Check out and enjoy Philip Anselmo’s full reading of The Monster at the End of This Book!
