Once again, metal is the target of political agendas interfering with artistic expression and freedom of speech under the flag of violent threats, oppression and false pretenses of justice. Earlier this year, we saw the repercussions against Phil Anselmo after his blatant display of racism during the Dimebash event in Los Angeles, CA. He was […]

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

Posted by on August 24, 2016

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.

More drama in wake of Phil Anselmo’s drunk Dimebash outburst? Naturally. Despite multiple apologies and an offer to leave Down, the backlash over his Nazi salute and white power shoutout continues. There’s deservedly a bit of anti-Anselmo sentiment going around at the moment. Down has been dropped off the FortaRock Festival in the Netherlands and their show in New Orleans […]
