It’s no secret that Phil Anselmo, of Pantera fame, is a huge black metal fan; citing Venom, Hellhammer, Darkthrone and Mayhem as an early inspiration
Lately Phil has been attracting most attention for, what could be best described as, serious lack of judgement; acting as an total idiot, making certain hand gestures, yelling “White power” on stage – and later apoligizing the whole thing.
Most people have an opinion on Phil, myself included, but let us put it all to rest for now, and focus on the music instead, because Phil has got a brand new jam..
Scour is an exciting new supergroup, featuring members of well known metal bands: Jesse Schobel (Strong Intention) on drums, John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer) on bass, Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation) and Chase Fraser (Animosity) handles the guitars. Last, but definitely not least, Mr. Anselmo outlives his dream of fronting a black metal band, once again, by taking care of the vocal duties.
Their self titled EP will be released July 16th, 2016 on Anselmo’s own Housecore label. Until then, you should enjoy the first song released to the public; “Dispatched” is a neo-classical take on true black metal, just as our Scandinavian mothers taught us how to do it..
