PHILIP ANSELMO, WARBEAST Comment On Upcoming Split Album
November 5, 2012, 4 years ago
Legendary DOWN vocalist PHILIP ANSELMO (ex-PANTERA) and Housecore Records thrashers WARBEAST recently announced that they will be releasing a new split album entitled War Of The Gargantuas. The split now has an official release date of January 8th and will include two songs from each artist. This album serves as the first release of any solo work by Philip Anselmo during the span of his nearly 30-year legacy. Also, the two Warbeast tracks on the split feature former bassist Alan Bovee before his amicable departure from the band. Since then, Dre Karst has joined on bass.
“These two songs we have on War Of The Gargantuas were the next level after Krush The Enemy,” states Warbeast guitarist Scott Shelby. “They've been a staple in our set list for the last two years. These songs are a pure demonstration of our unique Texas thrash metal style.”
Warbeast also recently announced the upcoming release of their second full-length album, Destroy. The album is scheduled to be released in early 2013 via Housecore Records and is currently in the mastering stages. Stay tuned for more information on Destroy coming very soon.
