#108: The Legendary Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint Ritual)


The MetalSucks Podcast

Philip H. Anselmo makes another appearance on this episode (he first joined us way back on episode sixteen!), right after his 47th birthday, and on the verge of taking Superjoint Ritual on a full tour for the first time in a decade. We talk about getting older and how it changes your perspective on conflicts with people, such as Tom G. Warrior and former band members. We also find out the status of his autobiography in the wake of the passing of his co-author and co-founder of the Housecore Horror Film Festival, Corey Mitchell.

Eyal Levi drops in for another segment of ‘One Minute to Midnight,’ in which unsigned bands get to be critiqued by a professional engineer, producer and all around talented dude. Event Horizon and Dissident Regressor are on the chopping block this month — you can judge, or just listen to us tear them to shreds (actually, we attempt to help them make their music better)!

We also take another listener call and discuss who could make a good concept record (should Slipknot even contemplate trying to pull something like that off?), why Mayhem Fest founder Kevin Lyman had to apologize for calling metal “fat, old and bald,” and more.
