Bad news from Phil Anselmo -- Pantera is done for

Bad news for Pantera fans.

'Vocalist Phil Anselmo says that he is done with PANTERA and he intends to focus all his time and energy on SUPERJOINT RITUAL. "There was a lot of business with Warner Bros. and this and that DOWN and PANTERA and this and that, and etc. etc." Anselmo was quoted as saying by MetalIndex.com. "Whatever. Pretty much what I'm doing here is I'm sticking with SUPERJOINT, and I'm not doing ****in' anything else. This is where I'm most comfortable and this it the type of music that I wanna do, you know?"

Anselmo says that he is proud of what PANTERA achieved and is also proud that they pulled the plug rather than faded away. "If you think about it, PANTERA never went away until we personally said, '**** it'."

Asked if he sees patching up differences and rejoining DOWN or PANTERA, Anselmo said, "Never say never... [but] not right now."

SUPERJOINT RITUAL's sophomore album, "A Lethal Dose Of American Hatred", is due on July 22 through Sanctuary Records.'

Even though I love Pantera, I'm actually more upset that he has severed ties with Down. Their blues-metal style really was awesome. I've only heard the one song MTV2 plays of Superjoint and it wasn't really enough to tickle me. Any thoughts on his new band?

The whole Superjoint CD is done in the same style. Some songs are more grindcore than others, with Phil screaming in a black metalish voice. All of the songs are short as well. If you didn't like that song, I don't think you would like the album.

However, Vinnie and Dime have a new band coming out called New Found Power. It isn't Pantera, but something is better than nothing.

Pantera will never be the same without Phil.

No Phil, No Pantera.

I hope they don't replace a new singer.

It's safe to say that Vulgar Display of Power and Far Beyond Driven are two of my favorite albums - and *easily* two of my faves from the plain old "metal" genre (as opposed to death metal, black metal, power metal......).

Pantera has recorded many songs that I'd consider great, but if I had to pick one that best represents their coolness, it might be "Shedding Skin" from FBD.

Re: Bad news from Phil Anselmo -- Pantera is done for

Zakk Wylde should be a part of this if he wants to do it.

Pantera are reportedly set to head out on a "reunion" tour in 2023, according to Billboard. This would serve as the metal legends' first time playing under the Pantera name since 2001.

It's not yet known who would fill in for late guitarist Dimebag Darrell or his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul, however, Dennis Arfa and Peter Pappalardo of Artist Group International will serve as the group's agent.

“We are thrilled to be working with such an iconic band and bringing their music back to the fans,” Pappalardo said, as per the report.
Pantera's last concert took place Aug. 26, 2001 at Japan's Beast Feast [via Setlist.fm]. Following the dissolution of the band, Darrell and Paul went on to form Damageplan, who released one album in 2004, New Found Power, before Darrell was tragically killed onstage during a show later that year. Vinnie Paul eventually joined Hellyeah in 2006, and remained their drummer until he died in June of 2018.

Re: Bad news from Phil Anselmo -- Pantera is done for

As a tribute, I'd probably end up going to this. I've missed all of the times Anselmo has come by here playing Pantera songs. Seeing Damageplan and Hellyeah do Pantera songs was ok, but definitely loses something without Phil's voice. I'm not sure how well it will go over without the Abbott brothers, specifically Dimebag, but it may be worth checking out.

Re: Bad news from Phil Anselmo -- Pantera is done for

I think my most controversial metal opinion is that the Abbott Brothers were nothing without Anselmo and their output in early Pantera and after Pantera proves that. With that said, Phil brought something out in them and they all made 5 great albums. I would have liked to see them together but I'm fine with seeing them in whatever capacity they tour as Pantera. I saw Scour at MDF in 2019 and Phil played a few pantera cover songs, really good.

I still find the absolute burial of their pre Cowboys From Hell album interesting. I can't recall another group that essentially says "we weren't a band prior to XXXX year" even though they released a couple of albums prior.

Re: Bad news from Phil Anselmo -- Pantera is done for

Its official Zakk Wylde and Charlie Benante from Anthrax will be part of the tour


Billboard reports that guitarist Zakk Wylde and Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante will officially be in Pantera's reunion lineup when touring is expecting to commence in 2023.

Yesterday (July 13), Billboard broke the news that the surviving members of the legendary metal group — singer Philip Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown — will reunite under the Pantera name, aiming for a return to the road next year.

Over the years, Wylde, a good friend of Dimebag Darrell, has been suspected as the hypothetical successor to the late guitarist, should a reunion ever take place. Benante also has close ties to Pantera's members and is a known close friend to the group and will succeed Vinnie Paul, who died in 2018. It will be the first time Pantera perform live without the Abbott brothers.

Billboard also reports that the reunion lineup has the blessing of the estates of the Abbott brothers and it has received the "green light."

There was a lot in CFH from their previous albums, but it was a huge stylistic change, so I can understand why they disavowed the earlier hair metal albums. Especially since they didn't want to be bothered with playing those songs live. To my ears, those 4 guys really needed each other, as nothing they put out once they broke up was remotely as good. Each band had their merits, especially Phil's varied projects, but none of them gelled like Pantera did.

Hopefully this tour also gets the new Pantera home video finally released.
