He is not only one of metal’s most infamous frontmen, Phil Anselmo is also one of the most prolific. He will soon unleash yet…
Phil Anselmo needs little introduction to metalheads. He is best known as the frontman of the platinum-selling titans Pantera, but there is also Down and…
“Be it that gnarly scream, outspoken attitude or empowering stage presence, Philip H. Anselmo can do it all. The multifaceted musician from NOLA is everyone’s favourite frontman of aggression; from shaping sub genres in Pantera to forming the supergroup Down, Superjoint Ritual and many side projects in between.”

Hellbound Metal: “So if you’re looking for something to get you amped at the gym or some such physical activity, BornBroken should do the trick. The Healing Powers of Hate seethes with that kind of adrenaline boosting capacity. And there’s always a market for that.”
Things are a little quiet this week at Hellbound, as a bunch of us are away in Baltimore, MD at Maryland Deathfest. So, since we are away, here is a reprint of a story I did on one of this year’s headliners, DOWN, for their second album back in 2002.
Earlier this month HELLYEAH kicked off their current North American tour supporting VOLBEAT at Toronto’s Kool Haus. Hellbound’s Ola Mazzuca was there to speak with band members Chad Gray and Tom Maxwell about the band’s struggle with their own personal demons, their place in metal and the band’s soon to be released new album “Band Of Brothers”

On July 10, 2011 Toronto heavy rockers Cancer Bats went through some changes. Liam Cormier, Scott Middleton, Mike Peters and Jaye Schwarzer were swept into a void at the Sonisphere Festival in Stevenage, England, and when they re-emerged they became… Bat Sabbath, a hardcore Black Sabbath cover band. The Bat’s set, which was meant to be a one-off post-Slipknot after-party, attracted 5,000 bangers. More importantly, it captured the imagination of promoters. As such, starting this December, inbetween recording sessions for their fourth full-length album, Bat Sabbath will once again emerge from that hole in the sky and perform 11 dates across central Ontario and Quebec.
