5.0 out of 5 stars Philip H. Anselmo doesn't do it again!, 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Walk Through Exits Only (Audio CD)
'Heads up - Hands down'.

This record is brilliant! In a world of rehash & rewrite this record is a breath of fresh air. Mainstream heavy music in 2013 is going through the motions, and probably has done for over 10 years. I'm sure a lot of new bands sound great to a youngster, but as a 35 year old I'm getting bored of the same old dog shit.

The best albums in the world have been 'growers', needing attention from the listener and first listen this album sounds very extreme, and it is, but after a few good listens the songs start to appear.

Musically speaking it could lazily be described as Superjoint Ritual featuring Dimebag type guitar solos, but it really is not like that at all. Sure there are lots of sqealing lead guitars courtesy of Marzi Montarzeri but it works very well as he's also doing his own thing rather than doing a Dimebag to Pantera it up. Apart from Phil's voice the closest the album comes to Pantera is as Bedroom Destroyer leads into Bedridden which resembles Suicide Note part 1 leading into The Great Southern Trendkill, if that makes any sense. Try it on your iPod, it works!

Phil Anselmo has bought his fans something different but it does have Phil Anselmo written all over it, which is what we want.Only Phil Anselmo could sing and come up with the line; 'I walk through exits only, because I can!'
There are also extended jam type ghostly outros on three songs ('Betrayed', 'Bedroom Destroyer' & 'Irelevant Wall and Computer Screens') which were the biggest surprise to me, but they are really good and spooky and do give the album a 'classic' feel.

I also like the artwork with the back cover showing an X-ray of Phil's infamous 'nail bomb' spine.(Phil had major back surgery in 2005) Also photographs from around Phil's house taken by Phil's long term partner & P.A Kate Richardson.

All I can say is; If you're sick of the same old (fake business metal) shit, then this is for you.
