Phil Anselmo Explains Change In Vocal Style From Pantera

(TeamRock Radio) Phil Anselmo insists he can still sing most vocal styles - but admits there's some songs he'd struggle to pull off. The Down and Superjoint singer doesn't think he'd be able to carry songs such as Pantera's Cemetery Gates the way he used to, but says he purposefully moved away from that vocal style.

He tells MusicFrenzy: "I know there is a contingency of people out there that say, 'Ah, Phil can't do this and that anymore.' And you're damn right - there's no way I'd be able to sing Cemetery Gates or something like that again. Not that I'd want to.

"I purposely moved on from that style of vocal, because I felt that style had been beaten to death. And I know there's a contingency of people who prefer the singing voice over extreme vocals - because I can do both.

"It's all about the mood I'm in. I can f***ing sing - I've got soul, Jack. I've got a little 'brother' in me, if you know what I'm saying. I'm from New Orleans. So, anybody who doesn't think the kid can still sing, or I'm copping out, I've just gotta say - you're wrong." Read more here.
