Profile Bio Text
Philip Hansen "Phil" Anselmo (born June 30, 1968 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is an American musician who is best known as being the frontman for the metal band Pantera. He is currently the frontman for sludge/stoner metal band Down. He is also the owner of Housecore Records, a record company he started, through which he intends to release his lesser known projects.
While Pantera were still a small, unsigned Glam Metal band, with three self-released albums to their name, they were beginning to adopt a harder sound. This new direction was the complete opposite of their singer Terrence Lee who was primarily a `Glam Metal` singer. He would be unable to deliver the goods so the band decided to replace him. Seeking a new frontman to continue on this heavier path, the band was led to 17 year old Anselmo. In 1987 after just a few meetings, the band just clicked with Anselmo and added him to the now legendary Pantera lineup. The band were so impressed with Anselmo that they decided to re-record some of Terrence Lee`s vocals for their latest release. Philip relocated to Texas to record Power Metal which the band released in 1988 on the band`s own record label `Metal Magic Records`. Pantera were turned down 28 times by major labels and in the end just decided to tour and have fun instead of worrying about it. Vinnie Paul commented that their glam image wasn`t responsible for their success, and that they should just dress casually. The band dropped the glam image and adopted a `jeans and T-shirt` approach. Finally the band were scouted when a record label scout was stranded due to a hurricane. The band saw him at the gig and were disheartened when he left mid-set. It turned out he went to phone the record label and to tell them to sign Pantera ASAP. After a demo, the band recorded what many consider to be their `debut`, Cowboys from Hell in 1990 and a long tour began. Some of this tour was documented on the band`s first home-video, Cowboys from Hell: The Videos released in 1991.
