The Details: Every card carrying Metal head knows full well the name of Phil Anselmo and his many musical accomplishments. What? You don’t know who I’m talking about? Well, I think you best get out of the way because this is serious Metal business I am discussing here. Yep, Phil is a legendary name who we all first heard of in Pantera, and then enjoyed in both Superjoint Ritual and Down but now he is striking out on his own and has just released “Walk Through Exits Only”, his debut solo album. Much like Phil himself, the release is an assault on the musical psyche and that is what makes it cool to have this contest that came courtesy of our awesome friends at Livenation. Read further on to see how to participate.
When and Where: Friday, August 16th at Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd Street NYC)
To Participate: Get those thinking caps on my legions. To participate tell me three things that you like about Phil Anselmo as a performer and what his music has done to you. Feel free to use a number of his different groups if you like. I’ll stress that you give me something good to read because a quick one or three word submission is kind of lame, and we need to go big for someone like Phil. Remember to enter your full real name and an email address in the comment form (but not the comment itself) so we can reach you if you win. It also never hurts to subscribe to the comments for the duration of the contest.
Restrictions: While all PiercingMetal.com contests are open to our regional site readers, we do look at new responders first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us. We still encourage all to respond because you never know just how many tickets we are offering but this time around the winners of our Summer Slaughter or Wintersun contests are not eligible. Sorry, it’s too soon to win again. Please also be aware that Guest and Anonymous submissions while likely approved are not eligible to win.

Phil’s solo album was only recently released but in addition to this he has a split EP and some new and still fresh Down stuff so I just made your life easier and added links to the lot of them.
