640x360Phil Anselmo has been forced to delay the release of his forthcoming book Mouth For War: Pantera And Beyond.

Written by Anselmo and Corey Mitchell, it was originally due to be published in January – but the frontman has been too busy touring with Down and Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals to complete the project.

He tells Jack Antonio: “The autobiography is something I’ve got to delay because I’ve been working my ever-loving balls off this entire year. To really get down and write a comprehensive, fun book to read, I can’t have any other distractions. Because living out on the road is one thing and I have a set regimen and I really can’t deviate from that process.”

He continues: “I haven’t had much time to think about the book all that much aside from keeping in touch with Corey. I know he’s been busy organising the Housecore Horror Film And Music Festival himself.

“There is a little bit of a delay on the book. The more I learn about it and its release date, the more you cats will learn about it. But as of right now, it’s just hit the brakes.”

The book is billed as “a no-holds-barred look inside of Philip’s brain, his history with Pantera, the loss of his best friend Dimebag Darrell and an unflinching examination into the downward spiral of pain and drug addiction that nearly cost him his life.”

Anselmo will play the Housecore Horror Film And Music Festival in Texas later this month. He’ll reunite with Superjoint Ritual under the shortened name Superjoint for the show – but he’s insisted it’s “100% a one-off.”

Phil Anselmo has hailed the jazz and funk influence on New Orleans metal bands in the latest episode of a series exploring the area’s heavy music scene.

NOLA: Life, Death & Heavy Blues From The Bayou is a seven-part series looking at the history of Pantera, Corrosion Of Conformity, Down, Goatwhore, Acid Bath and others as they cemented a heavy metal genre from the culture of New Orleans.

In episode four, the Down and former Pantera frontman hails New Orleans drummers and the way they embrace jazz and funk influences of bands like The Meters.

Anslemo says: “I think that there’s a certain groove here. Homegrown drummers specifically have that behind the beat feel. Like The Meters, the funky, funky Meters. If you look at the funk and groove within that genre, if you pull it off in heavy metal – boom, it’s super effective. It’s showstopper, it’s badass.”

Crowbar frontman Kirk Windstein agrees that the diversity of the area’s music scene makes its metal acts unique.

He says: “We grew up on a plethora of different styles of music. Like the jazz stuff – stuff that you couldn’t help going to your grandparents’ house and they’re listening to, like Dr John records. People would be jamming on the albums at barbecues. It’s the only city I’ve been to that has this kind of vibe.”

Got news?

Metal-Allegiance-122

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire

The beginning of the last day of Motorhead’s Motorboat Cruise began on a peaceful note as we went to the aptly named Serenity Deck for some rock and roll yoga, which featured Led Zeppelin tunes. The rest of the last day aboard the Carnival Ecstasy was anything but peaceful and serene.
Lines of fans wrapped around the ninth floor of the ship as crowds gathered for David Ellefson’s book signing, along with meet and greets with Motorhead, Zakk Wylde, Down and numerous others.

Over on the Deck Stage, female fronted band Cilver gave a memorable second performance. Later in the day, High on Fire’s set was one of the best on the outdoor stage. Down members Philip Anselmo and bassist Pat Bruders were rocking out in support of High on Fire’s incredible set. After that, Zakk Wylde also performed his second acoustic set of the cruise.

In the Starlight Lounge, some serious partying was going on as Danko Jones tore it up in the very intimate space. Party band Wilson also performed their second set to round things off on a fun note.

The foundation of the Blue Sapphire Theater might never be the same again as it saw a lot of action on the final day at sea. Heavy hitters Testament, Anthrax and Motorhead all played their final sets of the cruise.

The almighty Metal Allegiance of all-star jam ended things right. While the set included many of the musicians from the first Metal Allegiance set, it also boasted a guest appearance from Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick, plus Motorhead members Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee joined Anthrax’s Joey Belladonna onstage for one song.
Philip Anselmo rounded out the night as he performed Pantera songs like ‘Goddamn Electric’ and ‘5 Minutes Alone.’ Of course the night ended with ‘F—ing Hostile.’ How could it not?

As we pulled into Port of Miami with ears ringing and sore necks, we soon realized that Motorhead’s Motorboat Cruise was one boat ride that both metal fans and bands will never forget. We can’t wait for Motorboat 2015!

Episode 1 “Origins”: Metal god Philip H. Anselmo reluctantly agrees to share his heavy metal wisdom with delusional manchild Dave Hill.

Here is how a press release for Metal Grasshopper, a new web series starring former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo and comedian Dave Hill, promotes it: “If you like stuff with corpse paint, burning pentagrams, medieval weaponry, irritable goats rented by the hour, couples counseling, delicious smoothie recipes, and real live chickens that basically don’t give a f*ck about anything, you are totally going to love Metal Grasshopper, because it has all that stuff and then a bunch of other awesome stuff on top of that too.”

Well, okay then!

FULL DISCLOSURE: My pal and fellow Lower Garden District resident, Chris Lee — the husband of former White Zombie guitarist Sean Yseult (together they once owned the legendary NOLA dive, The Saint) — produced, co-wrote and co-directed Metal Grasshopper. He described it in an email saying, “Created by me, Philip, and Dave, (Metal Grasshopper) is an important five-part series in which Philip schools Dave in the ways of heavy metal at his house deep, deep in the woods of Louisiana.”

Enjoy.

file_543437f32539dAnytime we get to see Down, it’s always a good time. Seeing Down on a massive ship is even better. The band held two incredible performances on the Carnival Ecstasy during this year’s Motorboat Cruise.

The band’s first set was outside on the Deck Stage while their second was held in the Blue Sapphire Theater. Frontman Phil Anselmo pulled multiple shifts as he also performed some Pantera anthems with Metal Allegiance.
