Every Time I Die and ex-TesseracT Members Speak Out Against Phil Anselmo


Following the lead of Machine Head’s Robb Flynn and then All Shall Perish and Darkest Hour, members of Every Time I Die and TesseracT have commented on Phil Anselmo’s recent actions.

Ex-Tesseract vocalist Elliot Coleman offered a humorous take on the incident. Though it’s not a laughing matter, I don’t think anyone but the most ardent Anselmo apologists would take issue with Coleman’s comment:

Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley shared a sentiment that many of us are surely thinking, only few in the metal community have been brave enough to express publicly for fear of reprisal and alienation by Phil:

Hopefully more prominent metal musicians will offer their commentary as well. It’s time that we, as a community, stop excusing Anselmo’s racism — which we’ve known about for years — and sweeping it under the rug.
