Anselmo's solo album
Pantera’s Phil Anselmo has a solo album he’s working on and he says it’s the most intense thing he’s ever put together. Anselmo told a radio station up north that the record is tracked and mixed and he just wants to give a few more passes before sending it off to master. He hopes to have it out by the end of the year, but he also says that he wants to wait for the re-release of Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power and also Down’s forthcoming EP to breath before putting his solo work out. Anselmo also says that the media is to blame for the riff formed between the former members of Pantera. Though, he says his door is always open for Vinnie Paul to come and chat.
Super-group a no-go
It would have been a super-group, there’s no question about it … but not everyone was on board. Megadeth’s Dave Mustain had the idea of bringing himself, Megadeth bassist Dave Elifson, Metallica’s James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich to form a super group. After the idea was shot down, Mustain says he apologized for even brining up the idea. Maybe Metallica is worried about doing any future collaborations after that abomination called Lulu featuring Lou Reed.
New album talk
Oh, and they apparently are far from retiring. AC/DC says their new album will be out in a year or two. This would make it the 16th full-length internationally released album from the Aussie natives. We’ll keep you posted on details.
