A BIG DAY FOR PHIL ANSELMO STREAMS
It’s a good day to be a Phil Anselmo fan — not one but two of the prolific vocalist’s bands are currently streaming their latest releases. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to check out either of these yet, but I’m certainly curious about both of ’em. So now we can all listen together and make up our minds as a community. Won’t that be fun? Shouldn’t cause any in-fighting whatsoever.
- The CD portion of Down’s new live CD/DVD set, Diary of a Mad Band, is streaming here. Down have never let me, uh, down before, and I don’t know why they’d start now, ‘specially since this is a live collection and they always kick ass and take names live. So I’m gonna go out on a limb and predict that this fucking rules. Also… yep. I’m listening to “Lifer” right now and it sounds pretty killer. I’m thinking this one’s a keeper.
- Arson Anthem’s full-length debut, Insecurity Notoriety, is supposedly streaming here prior to its October 12 release date on Anselmo’s own Housecore Records. I say “supposedly,” ’cause, at least at the time of this writing, the page ain’t working. Which is a real bummer, since I really dug Arson Anthem’s EP in 2008. But hopefully by the time you read this it’ll be working again so we can all flame on.
Once you’ve listened, politely or not-so-politely share your thoughts in the comments section below.
