On a recent episode of “The Classic Metal Show” burnt out Pantera vocalist and famed roman-saluter Phil Anselmo admitted that his newest album Choosing Mental Illness as a Virtue was “only going to appeal to X amount of people, and that’s going to be a small amount of people.” By X amount, Phil was likely referring to the roman numeral for the number 10 as that is about the number of fans his band of soon-to-be deported illegal immigrants has. The album currently has a 46% score on Metal-Archives (already a low medium of standards) and virtually no one has professed a fondness for the album outside of the journalists who were paid to.
The timing of the new Phil Anselmo and the Immigrants album was obviously a calculated PR move as Anselmo tries to restore his reputation after he notoriously shouted “White Power!” at a benefit show for deceased bandmate Dimebag Darrell. By pushing the “Illegal Immigrant friendly Phil Anselmo!” image the record industry hopes to distract from Phil’s long history of expression of pride for his race. Since Housecore records has a hefty budget (for a metal/rock label in 2018 at least) they were in fact able to buy off several media outlets into symphasizing for industry golden-boy Phil.
