Technicians of Distortion Tour

Info Tabs


After acting as frontman for Pantera, Down and Superjoint Ritual and contributing to a multitude of peers' projects, metal legend Philip H. Anselmo has decided to fly solo. He is scheduled to release his first solo album, Walk Through Exits Only, on July 16, 2013 on his own Housecore Records label with his band the Illegals. Listen to their track "Usurper Bastard's Rant." Relentless guitars paired with bold percussion and Anselmo's signature screams make for quite an introduction. Anselmo explains that the song was inspired by how watered-down music has become and the number of "sound-alikes" that exist in the industry. "Traditions were meant to be celebrated and/or destroyed. The celebration is worn out in my view," Anselmo tells Rolling Stone. "It's time for more destruction, and this is exactly the point of 'Usurper Bastard's Rant.'"
