In 1988 this guy released his first album as the lead singer for a fairly unknown Texas metal band called Pantera. The album was called Power Metal and it didn’t exactly light the world on fire but his second album with Pantera Cowboys From Hell sure did. Since that album’s release in 1990 a legion of metal fans worship Pantera and look up to Mr. Anselmo. Not only has he been the lead singer of Pantera but also for Superjoint Ritual and Down, plus he now has his own solo album out with backing band The Illegals called Walk Through Exits Only. He is also one of the most honest people I’ve met. Enjoy a true and honest conversation with the one and only Philip H. Anselmo on the Hangar 19 Podcast edition
