Interview with Phil Anselmo: Down But Never Out

When I think of dynamic metal singers, Phil Anselmo’s name always comes to mind. In fact, if you listen to current metal bands on the scene right now, many are still trying to mimic the style that he’s developed and perfected. It’s that aggressive singing style that is always replicated, …

Interview with Rex Brown from Kill Devil Hill: Playing Cowboys And Indians

One of the most influential bass players for myself and countless others has been none other than Rex Brown from the mighty Pantera. The minute I heard “Cowboys From Hell,” “Domination,” “Primal Concrete Sledge” and “Cemetery Gates” back in 1990, I knew that I had struck audio gold. I needed …

Interview with KIRK WINDSTEIN from CROWBAR: Severance Payoff

New Orleans outfit Crowbar are unparalleled legends of sludge, and an entire generation of metal, whether it be Killswitch Engage or Chimaira or Hatebreed, have taken influence from their mammoth riffs and unrelentingly downtrodden atmospheres. Their first album in six years, Sever The Wicked Hand, will no doubt prove …

Good Intentions: Everybody On The Pile

Obscure South Park references aside, I’ve got to get back to the ever-growing pile that’s on my desk. And that’s a pile of CDs, thank you very much. A reminder for those just getting here: this is a warts-and-all rundown of the CDs that make it on my desk that, …

Down & The Melvins: Twice The Sludge

Southern metal semi-supergroup Down (if you’re not a metalhead, you’re probably only going to recognize the name Pantera) probably wouldn’t exist if The Melvins hadn’t blazed the slow and heavy trail first, and a bill featuring the two bands is nothing short of a sludge fan’s wet dream. Both groups …

Interview with Down: Over And Above

It’s been a long road for Down. The loss of a dear friend and brother in Dimebag Darrell in 2004 and the ravaging of their New Orleans home base the following August left the band as a collective with little more than bone, nerve and sinew. The raw emotion and …
