Phil Anselmo, actor Bill Moseley get weird with “Bad Donut”

Posted by on January 11, 2017

Last year, for obvious reasons, we didn’t hear much from Phil Anselmo. He popped up towards the end of the year with Scour and Superjoint, and now the first song from yet another project, Bill and Phil, has surfaced.

Posted by on December 30, 2016

Well, it’s been a year, 2016 has. A year where a gorilla getting shot was one of the least shitty things that happened, 2016 opened with the metal community still in shock over the passing of Lemmy and closed with the death of Princess Leia and her mom a day later, meaning all bets are […]

If you’re a fan of the several projects Phil Anselmo is involved, then you are very familiar with Superjoint, previously Superjoint Ritual.

Fear And Loathing On Hadad’s Lake: Or, What Went Down At GWAR B-Q

Posted by on August 24, 2016

If you’ve ever spoken to me at length about music, you probably came away from that conversation knowing that I adore GWAR B-Q. It’s everything I love about music festivals, and none of the stuff that tends to suck about them. I often refer to GWAR’s annual bacchanalia of meat, fake blood, and heatstroke as what […]

Down far from done, Pepper Keenan says

Posted by on April 4, 2016

It’s  been a rough year for Phil Anselmo, for obvious reasons. His racist outburst at the Dimebash overshadowed the legacy of Pantera’s late guitarist, and also that of his bands and label.
