king parrot w phil anselmo

Australian thrash grinders King Parrot will release their new full length Dead Set on May 15th in Europe via Agonia Records, May 19th in North America via Housecore Records and May 15th in Australia via Rocket/EVP. Stream “Like A Rat” below.

The record was produced by Philip H. Anselmo, and his recording crew of Michael Thompson and Steve Berrigan at the infamous Nodferatu’s Lair (Down, Eyehategod, Superjoint Ritual et al) in Louisiana and spews forth ten ravaging psalms that showcase King Parrot’s signature punk rock spirit and pummeling sonic debauchery. A true leap forward from their debut, Dead Set exhibits a distinct maturity from a band who’ve committed to the rigors of international touring, slaying audiences through Asia, North America, Europe and Australia on a regular basis.

Phil Anselmo And The Illegals – Walk Through Exits Only

117 The much-anticipated solo album from Philip Anselmo, Walk Through Exits Only (Season of Mist/Housecore) has arrived, and it is definitely a musical enema for your head. It’s loud and chaotic, brutal, and beautiful to hear all at once. This album sees him returning to the style we had become so accustomed to in the first half of his almost twenty-five-year career in metal. Don’t get me wrong, Phil as the voice of Down is great, and he has added a wizened, graceful quality to that band now. But, if you also love the vitriolic harshness of classic middle-era Pantera albums, Superjoint Ritual, and his other work, you will be thrilled to hear the sound of the Phil of old rise again. This album will speak to a primal place deep within you, and it will have you speaking in tongues.Continue reading
