Phil Anselmo’s Nazi salute was a flash-in-the-pan controversy, and it seems like it was years ago rather than a few short months ago. Whether you can forgive him or not is entirely up to you.
However, nothing he can do will change the fact that he makes some best brutal metal any headbanger ever laid ears on. And what he’s been up to with Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer), Chase Fraser (Continuum, former Animosity, Decrepit Birth), and Jesse Schobel (Strong Intention) since his controversial stunt just proves that fact.
What’s been formed is the metal supergroup Scour, and the band has just premiered a new track, “Tear Gas,” which hails from the self-titled debut EP, due out July 16th.
Have a listen to “Tear Gas” here.
Comments Engemann of the track:
‘Tear Gas’ was the final song written for the debut EP. It was completed backstage on the *Cannibal Corpse/Cattle Decapitation tour last year. Every day Jarvis and myself would ‘SCOUR’ for an isolated, quiet spot to set up my portable recording studio. I remember specifically Rob Barrett walking in during the tracking of this song, and gave his nod of approval [laughs]. This song has a chorus section at the end that is unique to this album. Once it was finished, I sent it to Philip to write the lyrics. Of course, The Kid completely just nailed the chorus. ‘Let the war be waged…’
