As previously reported, Anselmo and Housecore Records thrashers WARBEAST have a NEW split album entitled 'War of the Gargantuas'. The split, which is a total tease, includes two songs from each artist. This album serves as the first release of any solo work by Anselmo. Also, the two WARBEAST tracks on the split feature former bassist Alan Bovee before his amicable departure from the band. Since then, Dre Karst has joined on bass. Get it HERE!
See what other press sources are saying about 'War of the Gargantuas':
“Veterans of the scene, WARBEAST don't simply rely on the '80s template. Rather, they blow it up and rebuild it into an even more vicious and vital monster… This is everything ANSELMO fans and metal fans have been hoping for and so much more. As with all of his projects, you've got to hear it to believe it.” – ArtistDirect.com, 5/5 Stars
“The combination of PHILIP ANSELMO and WARBEAST make War Of The Gargantuas a vicious, brutal onslaught of Metal that creates the ultimate teaser for both bands.”- Bloody-Disgusting.com
In addition to this week’s release of 'War of the Gargantuas'', DOWN and WARBEAST will head out on “The Weed & Speed Tour: West Coast Throwdown in the Year of XIII” this Friday, January 11th, starting in Houston, TX at Warehouse Live. The tour will make its way through several states, coming to a close on February 1st in Chattanooga, TN at Track 29.
