Guitarist Calls Phil Anselmo “The Realest Motherfucker I Know”

Phil Anselmo

Yes, this is news. So, this site The Metal Den sat down with ex-Superjoint Ritual guitarist Maziar “Marzi” Montazeri recently to discuss his work on Phil Anselmo’s forthcoming solo offering.

Called Walk Through Exits Only, Phil’s album is expected to land in stores in March.

Reading the interview, you get the distinct sense that Montazeri likes Anselmo.

“Philip’s the realest motherfucker I know,” he starts. “By that I truly mean that he is all heart and he wears it proudly. The love he has and the good that he does almost silently is felt by many around him and far. And when you are the only one out there speaking the truth boldly under a damn microscope by the general media, who’s got an appetite for destroying reputations, then he’s the perfect candidate because he has no fear.

“And, of course, when his words are taken out of context, it has its costs, but in the end, his voice is heard and the real fans not only hear him but identify with him,” says Montazeri. “The big misconception would be to say the opposite of what I mentioned. There is always gonna be a shit-starter somewhere for perverse purposes. Fuck them!”

No, fuck you Marzi.

He also spoke about what fans can expect from Walk Through Exits Only.

“It’s heavy and it is fuckin’ extreme,” he says. “Every song is completely different from the next. It’s not one that you’re gonna get upon just a single listen. It will unfold itself into what it is, which, in my book, is an undeniable body of work that will not only fill this empty musical existing void, but will kill and destroy the overrated bullshit that is fed to the listener. The time has come, and as a fan and lover of arts and music, I would want and need this in my life. I’m beyond stoked to have contributed. This has been my focal point and it is a very important album for everybody out there across the globe. We put everything we had into it and by that I mean blood, sweat, heart and soul. Philip’s lyrics are our new anthems. He is the one and only man that can deliver this kind of intense, honest, true and downright vicious body of work.”

  • Hi Chris!

    Stay pro, Chris! At least you admit you are nothing more than a “shit-starter.”

  • Hi Chris!

    Oh, and great “journalism.” Marzi was never in Superjoint Ritual. A third-grader with Google would actually know how to research his musical background. Of course, someone who is nothing more than an aggregator of other sites shouldn’t be expected to something as mentally taxing as research now, should they? Be sure to blame it on The Metal Den.
