The rift between longtime Pantera bandmates Phil Anselmo and Vinnie Paul has been well documented, but that hasn't kept Anselmo from offering olive branches to open communication in the media over the years.
Congrats are in order for Pantera, winner of the inaugural Loudwire Rock Bowl. The band's song 'F---ing Hostile' emerged victorious with just shy of 64 percent of the final vote, besting Metallica's 'Seek and Destroy' in the finals.
Talk about your clash of the titans! The 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl championship is one for the ages with two heavy metal legends -- Metallica and Pantera -- sending their powerful, hard-hitting tracks against each other to determine which is the best football anthem.
You may need some padding after this 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl semifinal matchup is complete. It's the circle-pit favorite 'F---ing Hostile' from Pantera squaring off the brutality of Slipknot's own slamming anthem 'Wait and Bleed.'
We've got two distinctively different sounding hard rock tracks advancing to the quarterfinals of the Loudwire Rock Bowl in Pantera's thrashy favorite 'F---ing Hostile' entering the arena against Korn's style-shifting rocker 'Freak on a Leash.'
There may be no more testosterone-fueled pairing in our 2013 Loudwire Rock Bowl than this one. On one hand you've got the in-your-face aggression of Pantera versus the all-out brutality of Drowning Pool, and you get to determine which band's track gets you more fired up for football.
The year 2012 was a particularly strong one for metal music, with a tremendous amount of quality songs ripping faces off from all subgenres. After the tens of thousands of votes were all tallied, Pantera snatched a huge win for their song 'Piss.'
Pantera / Down singer Phil Anselmo fans will get a taste of his solo material Tuesday, Jan. 8, with the release of the split EP titled 'War of the Gargantuas' with Warbeast. But, Anselmo says that his two songs on the split are not in the same vein as his upcoming solo album.
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.
It's been eight years since the tragic onstage murder of Pantera / Damageplan guitar legend 'Dimebag' Darrell Abbott, but the utter outpouring of love, respect and the desire to memorialize the man has not diminished one iota. Among those who honored Dimebag's legacy this year are Robb Flynn and the rest of Machine Head.
