Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals - Walk through exits only - promo cover

Philip H. Anselmo needs no introduction to any Metal fan on this planet. Metal legend. ‘Nuff said. Now, the coveted Metal resume of Philip H. Anselmo is expanding once again with his newest band: Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. A July 16th release date has been set for the release of his band’s album: Walk Through Exits Only.

Just the album title alone can easily sum up the path that Philip H. Anselmo has taken during his multi-brilliant Metal career. Philip H. Anselmo has persevered and stayed true to the Metal cause. I dare anyone to tell this Metal legend that “the entrance is that way, sir.” Like him or not, Philip H. Anselmo is and always will be a powerful Metal statesman and I personally could not see it any other way. Maybe my album title interpretation may differ from others; that’s what makes art such a dynamic gift upon our civilizations, I gather.


I am beyond excited, that over the years Philip H. Anselmo has continued onward with one project after another; exemplifying that stagnation is for pussies in the first place. While many Metal fans speak of Ozzy Osbourne, Rob (The Metal God) Halford, Lemmy Kilmister and Alice Cooper (for examples) as our living Metal leaders, I cannot overlook the Metal historic importance of Philip H. Anselmo and his profound contributions to our Metal genres. This Metal legend has obviously touched all of our beloved Metal genres… and he has succeeded magnificently. In my Metal opinion, Philip H. Anselmo has.

I’ll be purchasing Walk Through Exits Only on July 16th, 2013. I will be happier than a pig in the most filthy of shit too. The realization that Philip H. Anselmo gives a damn about keeping Metal true and legitimately badass will overcome me once again, as I let his new album scald my senses and knock me flat on my Metal lovin’ ass. Metal be thy name.

* Walk Through Exits will be released on Philip H. Anselmo’s very own Housecore Records.

Back on January 8th, 2013, the split CD War Of The Gargantuas was released via Housecore Records. Sharing Metal space with the rabid Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals gives you a couple of titanic songs that will not be on Walk Through Exits Only. I strongly urge y’all to go out and buy it! Whoa.


Back in 2010, I had the privilege, courtesy of Rob Rockitt, to conduct an interview for his mighty Hard Rock Hideout; the honor was interviewing Philip H. Anselmo. Click on the link below to read for yourself… that this Metal legend has walked the walk.
