PHILIP ANSELMO With WARBEAST: New Video Footage From Fort Worth Concert Posted Online

May 20, 2010

OutlawVideo.TV's Rick E. Warden has posted quality video footage of Philip Anselmo (DOWN, PANTERA, SUPERJOINT RITUAL) joining WARBEAST on stage on May 8, 2010 at Ridglea Theater in Fort Worth, Texas to perform a song from the band's just-released debut album, "Krush The Enemy".

WARBEAST (formerly TEXAS METAL ALLIANCE) features in its ranks RIGOR MORTIS vocalist Bruce Corbitt, GAMMACIDE guitarists Rick Perry and Scott Shelby, GAMMACIDE/DEVILFIST bassist Alan Bovee and DEMONSEED drummer Joe Gonzalez.

"Krush The Enemy" was released on April 27 via Anselmo's Housecore Records. The record features ten tracks covering a wide range of metal terrain aimed squarely at the neck-snapping headbanger in the front row.

"Krush The Enemy" track listing:

01. Krush The Enemy
02. Unleashed
03. Self Will Run Riot
04. The Plague At Hand
05. Blackened Heart
06. Scorched Earth Policy
07. Guardian Angel
08. The Controller
09. Stalker
10. We Are The Vultures

Not only does Anselmo run the label that WARBEAST's debut album was released on, he produced the record as well. Corbitt had the following to say about signing to Housecore Records and working with Philip on the production of the album: "WARBEAST is proud to be signed with Housecore Records. I like the fact that their expectations are high for what they want out of a band. They also have a way of creating this family vibe between the band and the label while making it obvious that they believe in us. That is all the motivation we need to want to kick some ass for their label at all times.

"We wanted Philip to be our producer and to be involved in the creation of this album. Overall… Philip made it a very beneficial, but also a fun and memorable experience. Philip made this album even better… and that is what a producer is supposed to do."

Anselmo previously stated about WARBEAST, "For myself, WARBEAST epitomizes 'the DFW [Dallas/Ft. Worth] thrash metal' sound to its maximum.

"Having grown up seeing RIGOR MORTIS and GAMMACIDE live, collecting their demos and knowing the guys in these bands during my younger, more impressionable years left a resounding imprint on me.

"People know that I was born in New Orleans, but I moved to the DFW area to join PANTERA when I was 17, so I had the privilege of being a part of, and living somewhat vicariously through both local scenes. And the magic of that was how different sounding both scenes were, and how absolutely awesome it was to watch the emergence of the two of them. Having the best of those two extreme worlds not only influenced me as a musician, but it made me fan of both scenes, for life!

"When I listen to modern-day thrash, after two or three songs, I pretty much know what I'm getting thereafter. There's no way in hell ANYONE can say that about WARBEAST. No fucking way. Without bowing down to the doldrums of an obvious 'technical metal' band nor to today's EXODUS worship, every song is its own SONG; riff-delirium, thunderous cadences and classic thrash vocals delivered in TRUE, classic thrash style.

"WARBEAST are a great band… and will prove to be major players in the very near future…you can bet your ass on that."
