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.
Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals are set to embark on their first-ever tour beginning July 31 in Tulsa, Okla. Anselmo and the boys are sure to play plenty of material from the act's debut album, 'Walk Through Exits Only' (due July 16), but if you could hand-pick your dream Anselmo set list, which Pantera, Superjoint Ritual and Down songs would you add?
It's Record Store Day today (April 20) and music fans around the world are heading to their local independent shops to support the longtime standard of how to purchase music. Making the experience even more of an event is the amount of bands and labels responsible for issuing unique vinyl releases and other specialty items tied to the day. One rocker enthused that there is such a thing as Record Store Day is Pantera / Down frontman Phil Anselmo.
2013 is not even two months old yet, but Down got the year off to a great start while joining labelmates Warbeast for a pummeling January excursion. Now the veteran metal collective will pack up their gear once again this spring for a week-long trek through the Southeastern United States, concluding with a hometown show in New Orleans.
The temps may be chilly outside, but Down and Warbeast definitely brought the heat to West Hollywood's Key Club Wednesday night (Jan. 16) for the Los Angeles stop of their winter tour. The two acts combined for a blistering night of rock and some rather emotional moments before all was said and done.
As one of metal's most aggressive vocalists in history, it's no surprise to learn that Pantera / Down vocalist Philip Anselmo is a huge fan of boxing. Surely tracks such as 'F---ing Hostile' and 'Mouth for War' have inspired many fists to bust through walls, along with faces, so Boxing Insider welcomed Anselmo for an exclusive interview, but here's the catch: Philip Anselmo was brought in to conduct an interview with yet another musician and boxing fan … rapper 50 Cent.
