Phil Anselmo Rather Have Friends Than Enemies

(Rock News Desk) Phil Anselmo has reached a point in his life where he'd rather have friends than enemies, he reflects. And that attitude appears in the lyrics he's written for Down's upcoming EP. But he takes time to fire back at negative voices who have been predicting the end of heavy metal music since before he rose to the big-time with Pantera in the 1990s.

Anselmo says of his words on the six-track release: "I write to basically give an outline, and let the listener garner for themselves how they want to apply their own rules and regulations to the track.

"I find one of the biggest realities of life is that no two men, no two cultures, no two belief systems are really the same. There's a lot lyrically where I'm kind of at odds with mankind's relationship with mankind.

"Such is history but these days, instead of ruffling feathers, I'd rather have friends than enemies, any day. more on this story
