Pantera, Superjoint Ritual and Down frontman Philip Anselmo is teaming up with Warbeast to release a new split album entitled War of the Gargantuas. Housecore Records sent out these details:

The split now has an official release date of January 8, 2012 and will include two songs from each artist. This album serves as the first release of any solo work by Philip Anselmo during the span of his nearly 30-year legacy. Also, the two Warbeast tracks on the split feature former bassist Alan Bovee before his amicable departure from the band. Since then, Dre Karst has joined on bass.

"This split is a glimpse into the future of both my solo project and ultimate thrash metallers Warbeast. The title of the split is War of The Gargantuas and it is fitting on many levels because of our combined love for the 60's Japanese film of the same name, the power of our combined musical output(s) and our humorous affection that plays out within each of our "Gargantuan" personalities," states Philip Anselmo. "Both Warbeast and myself have full length LP's that will be released shortly after this is released, but this split is unique musically. It is a time capsule; a loud pause 'til we both release our full length products. Enjoy the destruction of music!"

"These two songs we have on War of the Gargantuas were the next level after Krush The Enemy," states Warbeast guitarist Scott Shelby. "They've been a staple in our set list for the last two years. These songs are a pure demonstration of our unique Texas thrash metal style."

Warbeast also recently announced the upcoming release of their second full-length album, Destroy. The album is scheduled to be released in early 2013 via Housecore Records and is currently in the mastering stages.
