Philip interviewed at Download Festival, videos of Rex and Philip joining each others bands to do Pantera songs.

donnington

Philip talks about himself keeping festival concerts unique with “blasts from the past”, and how he hates rock stars. Philip also touches on heavy metal genres and sub-genres, and how the headlining power of festivals could be safe in the hands of surprising new bands or quite possibly reunions of older more established bands.

Here Philip talks about it being the 20th anniversary of his first appearance at Donnington, the history of the Download Festival, playing with Rex again, playing Pantera songs for the youth of today, the state of heavy metal in 2014, and much more.

Rex joins Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals onstage at Download Festival 2014 for the Pantera classic “A New Level”.

Here, Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals do their versions of Death Rattle, Domination/Hollow,

Vinnie touched base with thisisnotascene.com about the new album:
TINAS: “Blood For Blood” is the most focused and concise Hellyeah album to date. How did it come out that way?

VP:We really wanted to make the record of our career. We just came off the Gigantour with Black Label Society and a couple of other bands and when the touring cycle for “Band Of Brothers” was completed we really wanted to write a new record and get in the studio and capitalise on the momentum we’ve created because of all the touring. Working with Kevin Churko was another reason why the new record sounds so fresh and focussed. He really knew how to get the best out of us.

TINAS:The new album is also much darker lyric-wise. The whole party atmosphere of the previous albums are all but gone. How come?

VP:As a band we wanted to make a dark, lean and focused heavy metal record. We got all the partying and booze songs out of our system on the previous record. I think we really found our sound on “Blood For Blood” and we’ve matured as a band as well. Tom (guitarist), Chad (singer) and I were all on the same page as what we wanted to achieve with the new record. Unfortunately Greg and Bob weren’t as focused as we were and they were dealing with some massive personal issues as well. That’s why we had to let them go from the band.

TINAS: You guys worked with Kevin Churko. What did he bring to the table as a producer?

VP:Kevin really knew how to get the best out of us and it was really refreshing for me to be just “the drummer” for a change. Five years ago I bought a house in Las Vegas and that’s also the city where Kevin works from. So every now and again we’ve bumped into each other and we were discussing working together at some point. I’m big fan of his work with Ozzy Osbourne and all the other productions he has down and he’s a big fan of the things I’ve done. So when we got to the point in the band that we wanted to work with an outside producer it was a no brainer to work with him. He also got along great with Chad, which really smooth the ride when it came down to record the vocals.

On May 28, Vinnie commented on the possiblity of Pantera reunion with Zakk Wylde for revolvermag.com:
“If you had an ex-wife, and it was a pretty bitter split, you might not ever want to talk to her again. Who cares if everybody in the family and your friends want you to say hello again? It’s your choice whether you want to do it or not. And I think a lot of people are selfish. They say, ‘Oh, he oughtta just kiss and make up with Phil and everything will be cool. And then they can go get Zakk Wylde and everything’s gonna be great.’ No, everything’s not gonna be great.”
