You can’t have a history of metal music and not include Pantera. When it was released in 1994, Far Beyond Driven hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts, making Pantera the first metal act to ever accomplish the feat. Singer Phil Anselmo, singer for Pantera and side projects Down and Superjoint Ritual, is now going solo. His first album, Walk Through Exits Only, will be released this July. In the mean time, he’s put out the first track from this effort, claiming inspiration from the fact that there were too many “sound-alikes” in the industry today.

If you’re curious, check out the track over at Rolling Stone.

Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
