Anselmo Revisits Pantera With Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, And Dream Theater
Down and former Pantera vocalist Phil Anselmo joined the Metal Masters — a lineup including Anthrax’s Scott Ian, Frank Bello, and Charlie Benante as well as Slayer’s Kerry King, Megadeth’s David Eleffson, and ex-Dream Theater stickman Mike Portnoy — to rock out some Pantera Classics.
If ever there were a metal supergroup — this one is the ultimate. Featuring only those truly befitting the title “Metal Masters”, the group made up of mostly participants of The Big 4 shows took to the stage last night (Sept 12th).
Those in attendance at New York’s Best Buy Theatre for the 2nd annual ‘Metal Masters Clinic’ were in for a real treat as Phil Anselmo joined the already star-studded lineup. The group fired through a rousing cover of ‘A New Level’ and ‘F—ing Hostile’, songs Anselmo originally brought to life with Pantera.
While Phil is currently on the road with Down, the members of Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer, will all share a venue (and most likely a stage) along with Metallica tomorrow night (Sept. 14th) at Yankee Stadium for the first east coast date of The Big 4 tour.
