Former Pantera singer Philip Anselmo has certainly lived a colorful life, and now it looks as though readers will get a chance to thumb through the details of his music, his friendships, and his addictions in all their glory as the vocalist just inked a book deal for his autobiography.
As if it weren't cool enough that the "Metal Masters" were preparing to stage their fourth performance, now the players from the event will get even closer to the public with a signing at Guitar Center in Union Square in New York.
Choosing the 10 best Pantera songs is no easy feat, since there are so many good ones, full of power grooves that incite moshpits; resonant rhythms that could rattle your teeth loose from your gums; and drill sergeant vocals
Philip Anselmo is gearing up for the release of Down's upcoming 'Down IV Part I – The Purple EP' on Sept. 18, and he insists that none of the members of the NOLA sludge band put any pressure on themselves regarding the release. He also shared that while the Pantera vaults have been emptied as a result of the 20th anniversary reissues of 'Cowboys From Hell' and 'Vulgar Display of Power,' he did reveal that some interesting cover songs still exist somewhere and if the right amount of digging is done, they could be unearthed.
In an exclusive interview with Loudwire, Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul talked about the legal situation Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe is currently in overseas in the Czech Republic. The legendary Pantera stickman knows all-too-well the dangers of fans jumping on-stage at live shows. Nearly eight years ago, his brother Dimebag Darrell was tragically shot and killed right in front of him during a Damageplan set in Columbus, Ohio.
Pantera fans have been rejoicing in the 20th anniversary reissue of 'Vulgar Display of Power' and the emergence of the lost single 'Piss' for a good portion of the spring, but that's not the last thing we'll see from the legendary metal band this year.
In the early nineties Pantera were hitting their stride, and with the recent reissue of 1992’s Vulgar Display of Power’ twenty years later, it’s hard not to remember what an impact Pantera had on music during that era.
As Pantera celebrate the 20th anniversary of their landmark album, 'Vulgar Display of Power,' a lot of chatter has been occurring online about the idea of Zakk Wylde hopping on a reunion tour with the band in place of the late "Dimebag" Darrell.
