Philip Anselmo Comments On The State Of heavy Metal


Down DOWN singer Philip Anselmo has shared his thoughts on the state of heavy metal right now:

Philip Anselmo: "We've been hearing that metal is dying for about 20 years. When I was in PANTERA, of course, heavy metal was dead. (Putting on 'record label mogul' voice) 'I'm not sure you're going to be able to sell many tickets on this tour - there's this new brand of music called nu metal that's gonna take over the world.' Ha! Look what happened. Heavy metal is never fucking dead, man. Never, never, never. There's a good case for it being healthier than it has been in years. It just depends on what you're looking for. If I started namedropping bands right now, somebody would get their fucking feelings hurt, so I'm not. And some bands come across as pretty generic. But I would take a lo-fi fucking rough shit recording of a great band over some over-produced, sleek fucking product that sells a million any fucking day at this point in my life."

Down will be releasing their first EP later this year.
