Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals release brutal third new song called “Delinquent”!

 Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals are premiering the third crushing song taken from the legendary singer’s sophomore album with his personal band, ”Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue”. The full-length will be out on January 26th, 2018.

Phil Anselmo stated this about the song  “Delinquent”:

“It’s old school-meets-ugly-school. Good shit.”

Tracklist:
1. Little Fucking Heroes
2. Utopian
3. Choosing Mental Illness
4. The Ignorant Point
5. Individual
6. Delinquent
7. Photographic Taunts
8. Finger Me
9. Invalid Colubrine Frauds
10. Mixed Lunatic Results

Philip H. Anselmo is an iconic artist, maybe a little bruised, scarred, singed, and somewhat battered by time, himself, and others. But the Texan remains proudly standing, unbent, and still angry. Loved and hated, attacked and praised, Phil is not ready to go down into the archives of musical history without a fight.

His new cooperation with the band that Phil himself created, The Illegals, is as brutal, kicking, lashing, and fury-filled as one could expect from this artist and  Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals‘ debut ”Walk Through Exits Only” (2013). Their sophomore album, ‘Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue’ is a much the metaphorical fist in the face and display of force as his adherents could wish for.

”Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue” is not a simple repeat of the past – as tempting as that might sound, considering that no other artist left a deeper mark on metal in the 90’s than Pantera. Raging, roaring, and bulldozing their way through the metal scene, the Texans have left a lasting legacy. At their front stood anger and hostility personified ,Philip H. Anselmo. What followed for example with Down and Superjoint Ritual has further cemented the singer’s reputation as a living legend. As an artist in his own right, Phil finally emancipated onto a solo-path with ”Walk Through Exits Only”, which enabled him to do exactly as he pleased – with no need to compromise on anything.

Now, ”Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue”  follows along the path that  Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals debut has carved, but takes the mega-heavy, angry monster born out of mating the visceral aggression and power of Pantera with the devastating thrash and Southern sludge that Phil and the New Orleans scene pioneered.

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals are back and about to mercilessly install ”Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue” as a new benchmark for extreme heaviness.

Line-up:
Philip H. Anselmo: vocals
Mike DeLeon: lead guitars

“Our new track, ”The Ignorant Point” is a tip of the hat to today’s top-notch, morally-sincere, trustworthy news agencies, websites, bloggers, etc. that have kept the public in such great spirits with their dedication to truth and honesty.

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals reveal first track called ”Choosing Mental Illness” and details of new album ”Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue”!

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals are announcing the release of their sophomore full-length, ”Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue”  through the singer’s label Housecore in the Americas and in license via Season of Mist in other parts of the world on January 26th, 2018.

The band is now releasing the title-track “Choosing Mental Illness” outside of the Americas at the link below.

Philip H. Anselmo stated this about the new album:

“Our new album, ”Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue” is going to get hated. It’s going to get loved. Like every record, I’ve ever done, I put zero expectations upon my peers, critics, or the general fucking public. If you take one thing away from it, let it be this: Do not bog yourself down to one brand, character, or whatever. Have the guts to spread your wings and fucking flourish. I can promise you this is a beginning. As my music trickles out over the next two years, it’s going to be quite the roller coaster ride. This new Illegals is just the tip of the whole fucking avalanche.”

The line-up of the The Illegals  has changed on several positions since album one. This is what Phil has to say about his new crew: “Their creative input is fucking fantastic. This is something that was very different from the first record where I was very staunch. I wanted it to be ugly. I was very firm that I was writing every fucking note. The thought was, ‘This is my contribution to ugly music right this second in a heavy metal vein.’ That was great at the time. ‘Walk Through Exits Only’ made its own little statement that I am a free agent and I belong to no single band. This time, I worked closely with everyone. We tried different ideas together. It made the spirit of this thing come alive even more because of the enthusiasm these guys bring. It enhanced the integrity of the project.”

Season of Arrows -Give it to the Mountain

1. Farewell to the Horseman
2. Deep Graves
3. Evening Lord
4. Autumn Wings
5. The Bridge
6. New Sorcery
7. Bellow
8. From the Wilderness We Retur

American sludge stoner doom rock/metal band Season of Arrows is going to release upcoming album in 24th March 2017. I can say about the album is that is very psychodelic, insane and dark metal release, with the some low heavy riffs added to it, it is a full of destruction coming to take you over to the dark side, and show you the true meaning of darkness itself. Wicked and evil sound gave the album it’s charm, and the atmosphere is very destructive with it.

Female vocalist has a crazy psychodelic evil voice, that is completly blended into the songs, so the hole story can be tell right, with some cool funeral vibe to it. Tehnical compliance is simply great, every tone is on it’s place. Acoustic is lower, but it sound’s great, and it is integrated very good with the hole release. Production is awesome, every tone and melody can be heard very good. The lyrics are about ocultism, and the sound together with it, present’s some nasty evil shit, that will surely freeze your bones.

Season of Arrows is a band that has some very heavy music with deep lyrics, they are amazing band, that present’s more that music.With this album they showed the dark side in it’s true form, trough some powerful evil music.

Rating Album:8,5/10

WOLF COUNSEL Announce Next Shows, Working on New Album!

Furthermore WOLF COUNSEL are currently writing new songs for the next album. More details will be revealed soon.

Originally a brainchild of the 1990s WOLF COUNSEL finally came into existence in 2014 when two veteran musicians merged their enthusiasm for monumental low-tuned music and a great appreciation of heavy riffs into a new band. Primarily rooted in the style of late 70s and 80s prototype DOOM, Sludge and Metal their sound quickly developed a very unique and heavy signature drawing influences from everything that’s HEAVY and SLOW. In January 2015 the debut album “Vol. I – Wolf Counsel” was released digitally, on vinyl LP and CD by Counsel Records and Dead Center Productions. The second album “Ironclad” was written and preproduced throughout 2015 – finally recorded at Hell’s Kitchen- and Little Creek Studio. Produced, mixed and mastered by V.O. Pulver for a worldwide release in September 2016 via Czar Of Crickets Productions/Plastic Head Distribution.
