Phil Anselmo Launches New Extreme Metal Band SCOUR

Wednesday, 30th September 2015

Ex- PANTERA and current DOWN and SUPERJOINT frontman Philip Anselmo has launched a new extreme metal project called SCOUR, also featuring contributions from John Jarvis (PIG DESTROYER, AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, FULGORA), Derek Engemann (CATTLE DECAPITATION), Chase Fraser (ex-ANIMOSITY, DECREPIT BIRTH), and Jesse Schobel (STRONG INTENTION, CAST THE STONE).

In a brand new interview with Hellbound.ca, Anselmo stated about the new project: “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 [SUPERJOINT is done with] the DANZIG tour.”

Anselmo continued: “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 [laughs] to get the point across, man. There’s other ways of singing over that style of music, and I shall employ many styles.”

An official SCOUR Facebook page has been launched at this location.
