HELLYEAH's new album Band of Brothers was released this past week! If you like heavy and hard driving metal, well, Band of Brothers may be for you! The guy's of HellYeah have gone back to their roots and brought back some of the sounds of the bands they have been inspired by or have played in. Basically meaning you get a record full of Mudvayne, Damage Plan, Pantera, and NothingFace. Not a bad combo! I chatted with drummer Vinnie Paul and Tom Maxwell, and they want you to know how this record goes! HELLYEAH!
Down is considered a sludge/stoner metal super group. Down features band members spanning from Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, and Pantera. Down has been working on 4 new EP's that will be released throughout the year, and in support of those upcoming EP's. Phil and the boys have set out for a small tour!
Oh man, this is gonna be awesome! Be sure to check out FULL METAL JACKIE tonight as she is joined by the one and only Phil Anselmo of Pantera and Down! Also check out our exclusive interview with Phil Anselmo!
Also getting to music from Metal Church, Judas Priest, new stuff from Gojira!
Pantera is one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Pantera brought us Dimebag Darrell, unforgettable songs like 'Walk,' 'Cowboys from Hell,' '5 Minutes Alone,' and so much more. Getting the opportunity to talk to Phil Anselmo, the lead singer of Pantera and Down, was quite the trip. Seems like there is a lot going on in Phil's world, and he wants you to know about it.
Dime is by far in my book, the greatest guitarist of all time. Most people would think differently, but Dime was the man. In the dawn of the 25th Anniversary Edition of Pantera's "Vulger Display of Power," a lost song named "PISS" showed up. Now, we have 'TWISTED' which features Dime in his prime. No Phillip Anselmo here...flatout Dime! Check out the video here!
In my opinion, Vulger Display of Power was Pantera's best album they ever released, with staple tracks like "Walk" and "F______ Hostile," Vulger Display is that album you need to pop in to just unleash any kind of aggression you have at the time. Seriously, try it sometime! For last 20 years, we have been confronting our aggression with this amazing album.
December will always be the month that metal celebrates the life of the late Dimebag Darrell. Every year, Dime's girlfriend/widow Rita Haney plans a benefit to celebrate the life of Dimebag Darrell by putting a HUGE tribute show with all the proceeds donated to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up & Shout Cancer Fund. This year, TONS of HUGE names in Metal joined in on the jam!
Rex Brown, former bassist of Pantera/Down has split ways with Down and has formed a new band/supergroup named 'Kill Devil Hill,' with members of W.A.S.P, Dio, Black Sabbath, and Pissing Razors. After 23 years of being with Phillip Anselmo (Pantera/Down vocalist), why did Rex leave 'Down?'
Back on December 2004, one of the saddest days in Metal occured, when Darrell "Dimebag" Abbot was brutally shot to death. After the occurrence, Dime's brother Vinnie Paul ceased to ever communicate with Pantera frontman Phillip Anselmo, as Vinnie possibly specualates that Phillip had something to do with Dime's death.
In a recent interview with Dimebag's longtime girlfriend Rita Haney, she want's Vinnie to FORGIVE PHIL!
To those hoping for a Pantera reunion, you can stop wishing now. Drummer Vinny Paul dismissed any rumors that Pantera would be reforming without his brother Dimebag Darrell, who was tragically shot and killed in December of 2004.
