Who better to give aspiring metal musicians and bands advice than Philip Anselmo? That’s at least what Fuse thought, hence why they recently sat down with the Down/ex-Pantera frontman.

But it’s hard to argue with him that bands need to play as often as they can and make themselves as visible as possible. Watch Anselmo’s reasoning for yourself in the video above.
