SCOUR of Phil Anselmo Feat. Members of Cattle Decapitation and Pig Destroyer released an debut song ''Dispatched'' (13/05/2016)
Lets get this out of the way: Philip H. Anselmo fucked up royally in January. You know it. I know it. He knows it. Hes apologized and asked forgiveness. But based on some previous transgressions, that last part is understandably gonna take significantly more for a lot of people to accept.
If that clouds your opinion of/interest in Scourarguably one of the more anticipated metal supergroups in some timethats entirely your prerogative. What we can help with, however, is actually debuting some music from the act featuring Anselmo, Pig Destroyers John Jarvis, Cattle Decapitations Derek Engemann, Animostitys Chase Fraser and Strong Intentions Jesse Schobel in the form of Dispatched. The song, taken from the bands self-titled debut EP (out July 15 on Anselmos Housecore label), is firmly rooted in 90s Scandinavian black metal and sounds remarkably NOTHING like any of the members main gigs.
Doing the Scour project was a blast," Anselmo tells Decibel. "The track, 'Dispatched' was the first one I attacked, as it was the first one sent to me. Lyrically, I leave it to the listener to evaluate, as usual. The way I saw it, the songs were short, and extremely straightforward, so I didnt want to clutter em up with too much. Therefore, I had to pick particular lyrics that seemed provocatively absurd enough, and to perform them as raw as deemed fit. Hope all true extreme music lovers enjoy the stuff as much as I did performing it. A huge cheers to all the awesome collaborators on this project... Much love to all!
