Philip H. Anselmo is quite a talented guy. Throughout the years whether it’s been Pantera, Down, Superjoint, Scour, etc it goes to show how versatile he is as a vocalist and lyricist, not to mention frontman. Last year, we got the first taste of a band he’s talked about for years, En Minor. The two songs released were quite stunning and a complete left turn from anything you’ve ever heard from Philip before. Now, the full length, When The Cold Truth Has Worn Its Miserable Welcome Out, is finally coming out September 4th. The first single “Blue” is absolutely beautiful and haunting. This track features the full arsenal of all the members involved with En Minor and it shows the versatility of all the players. Personally, I really look forward to this album. I also hope when the world gets back to some sort of normalcy, En Minor will get to tour and show off how good these songs are.
One of the most anticipated releases of 2019 for me is finally here. En Minor, a new (well sort of new) project from Philip H. Anselmo, have released their first song and it’s absolutely fantastic. Jokingly self-described as “depression core”, the music represents a far more somber side of Philip that is seldom seen. A while back when En Minor was first announced, Philip described the project as having a brooding, gothic approach that was less metal and more Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. The first song released “On The Floor” is a very dark and eerie song that takes some cues from Nick Cave. Getting to hear Philip like this is wonderful. His voice is perfect for this style of music and it couldn’t come at a better time.
