Phil Anselmo (Down, Superjoint, Pantera), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Chase Fraser (Animosity), and Jesse Schobel (Strong Intention) have teamed up in a new project called Scour. Anselmo was recently interviewed by Hellbound, who had the following to say about the new group:
“The Scour thing was something that just popped up, and it’s something that I think I can kill, something I can lay it out. They’re short songs. It’s a short EP, and that’s something I can knock out, I guess, after the Danzig tour. And yes, I said Danzig, and that’s a long story.
I think (there’s) one of the fellows from Cattle Decapitation, but it’s predominantly, in my ear, modern-ish black metal-sounding, thrashy black metal type stuff. I’m going to put my own spin on it. I don’t have to sound like your boy from Gorgoroth [laughs] to get the point across, man. There’s other ways of singing over that style of music, and I shall employ many styles.”
