Philip Anselmo of Pantera and Down fame recently revealed in a recent Hellbound.ca interview that he will be fronting a new black metal-esque project titled Scour. Scour will feature John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Fulgora, etc), Chase Fraser (ex-Animosity, etc), Jesse Schobel (Strong Intention, etc) and Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation) among its ranks. Anselmo stated the following:
“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.”
“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.”
More information on this as it develops. In the meantime follow the band on Facebook.
