Review: Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals "Walk through Exits Only"

Many fans hoped that ex-Pantera and current Down front-man Phil Anselmo would feature old bandmate Rex Brown on the first Anselmo solo album, but few will be disappointed with Bennett Bartley, whose sheer endurance and booming, almost disturbing tone will easily win over the haters. Front to back, the album plays like a thrash-metal nightmare in HD where Bartley’s bass is always brooding in the forefront of the chaos.
