Looks like Phil Anselmo will be providing vocals for a new project called Scour, also including Cattle Decapitation’s Derek Engemann, which just setup a Facebook profile here. The band’s lineup consists of:
Phillip H. Anselmo – Vocals
Derek Engemann – Guitar
Chase Fraser – Guitar
John Jarvis – Bass
Jesse Schobel – Drums
News of the project was revealed through an interview with Hellbound.ca, with excerpts from the chat following.
Hellbound.ca: Speaking of some of the other projects and things you’re working on, your drummer Joey Gonzalez has spoken with me about some death metal that you and him have been working on. And I wanted to mention the project Scour (also including Derek from Cattle Decapitation and Chase from Animosity on guitars, Jesse from Strong Intention/Cast The Stone on drums, and John from Pig Destroyer/Agoraphobic Nosebleed/Fulgora on bass).
Anselmo: (laughter) You already got wind of that one, too. The death metal thing, well really it’s tracked and, in my opinion, finished. It’s a matter of negotiation now between me and one of the other members of when and why and what and band names and all. It’s all political stuff and semantics. Other than that, 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 Danzigs tour. And yes, I said Danzigs, and that’s a long story.
Hellbound.ca: What style is Scour?
Anselmo: 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 (laughter) to get the point across, man. There’s other ways of singing over that style of music, and I shall employ many styles.
