Phil Anselmo Teams With Members Of Cattle Decapitation, Pig Destroyer, Etc. In Scour


Philip H. Anselmo of Pantera/Down fame is fronting a new project dubbed Scour. The group sport a rather interesting lineup that includes:

Vocals – Phillip H. Anselmo
Gutiars – Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation)
Guitars – Chase Fraser (Animosity)
Bass – John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, etc.)
Drums – Jesse Schobel (Strong Intention, etc.)

Anselmo was recently asked about the project by Hellbound. Speaking of how the outfit came to be, he offered:

“The Scour thing was something that just popped up, and it’s something that I think I can kill, something I can lay it out. They’re short songs. It’s a short EP, and that’s something I can knock out, I guess, after the Danzigs tour. And yes, I said Danzigs, and that’s a long story.”

He described their style as such:

“I think (there’s) one of the fellows from Cattle Decapitation, but it’s predominantly, in my ear, modern-ish black metal-sounding, thrashy black metal type stuff. I’m going to put my own spin on it. I don’t have to sound like your boy from Gorgoroth (laughter) to get the point across, man. There’s other ways of singing over that style of music, and I shall employ many styles.”

He also made mention of another death metal project he’s bee involved in with his Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals drummer Joey Gonzalez, stating:

“The death metal thing, well really it’s tracked and, in my opinion, finished. It’s a matter of negotiation now between me and one of the other members of when and why and what and band names and all. It’s all political stuff and semantics.”
