Phil Anselmo’s Solo Album Now Coming This Summer

Phil Anselmo

Philip Anselmo’s solo album has been coming for I don’t know how long. Dude’s been talking about it longer than he’s been out of Pantera.

Now, in a new interview, Phil says that the songs on his upcoming split with Warbeast don’t sound much like what we’ll hear on his upcoming solo album, which has been delayed once again.

“I think those songs are still a far cry from the full-length [Walk Through Exits Only] that will be coming out this upcoming summer, though,” says Phil.

“To me, they’re more in line with the straight-ahead songs I’ve come up with. Be prepared for a different listen when you hear the upcoming full-length. I wanted to do something different with a lot of fucking energy that would, I guess, come off as faster or more energetic than your basic fast playing at a million miles an hour with blast beats. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

“It’s just been overdone so many times,” he adds. “In my mind, there are ways to rhythmically capture a lot of energy without having to resort to the common way or speed-for-the-sake-of-speed feel. If you look at the basic drum beat on “Conflict”, it’s not a blast beat.

“It’s a big syncopation of kick drums and toms. It creates a massive energy with the double-picking guitar. It’s a first taste people can wrap their heads around. Be forewarned when the full-length comes out, though.”

Syncopation? Damn, Phil — you been reading a dictionary of something?
