Anselmo promises five albums this year

Former Pantera and Down frontman Phil Anselmo has vowed to bring a plethora of new music in 2017 as he outlines plans for five new albums this year – some of which he might put out for free.

Now fronting Superjoint, Anselmo says he has recorded five new records which span a variety of musical genres – which he adds are 'tripped out.'

Speaking to Metal Wani he says: “I'm sitting on five finished records right now – and they're all different and they're all tripped out. Some are heavier, some are heavier than heavy, and then some are not.

“I guess you woudn't be able to stuff it into the heavy metal category at all. I think it's the love of all the many genres.

“It's a set of songs that have grown up with me since I was first able to pick up the guitar – little things that I had just written along the way. These songs have grown up with me and advanced and grown.”

The outspoken frontman also paid tribute to his Superjoint band mate Steve Taylor whom he credits with being the reason so many of the new songs exist.

Speaking about the bassist he explains: “He’s really an incredibly creative guitar player. He's my main man right now. If it wasn’t for him, we probably wouldn't have half of these mysterious songs I’m talking about.”

He adds: “I think this year. If I have to dump some free albums just to get this fucking music out, I'm gonna do it. And, of course, we'll always have the hard copies and vinyl and stuff like that, for the collectors.”
