    Good creative stuff. Phil Anselmo never disappoints.

  • CmonPhil

    I get it……. but I hope he get’s this s*&t out of his system soon and starts focusing on real song’s to bang our heads and pump our fist’s to. Metal needs this mother*&^er right now.

  • Wtf?

    Huge disappointment. I think they should stop trying to be so original

  • Monika Trendkill

    This threw me off a lil.. he’s my favorite frontman ever! Ill be waiting patiently for whatever is to come. My respect remains the same.

  • Shawn Green

    I don’t get it. Maybe it’s art? I have dug everything Phil has done, except this. Pantera was amazing & groundbreaking, Down was dark and heavy & I loved them both but this???

    • Metal sucks

      ur stupid!

  • Rayna Smith

    I really like this song and ‘Pigs Kissing Pigs’ from the 2 song EP.
    I don’t want cookie cutter music!!! I want something different…
    I enjoy the video! It’s laid back, but sends a message.
    You’re not gonna get a big dramatic production from a ‘PHA’ video.
    That’s what I like….

  • MechaFraudzilla

    stop expecting Phil to come out with Pantera 2. Walk Through Exits Only should easily be in the top 10 metal albums of the year.

  • greatattractor

    Walk Through Exits Only” is for hard metal what Beethoven’s ninth and Mahler’s eighth is for classical music, a paradigm-changer, a true exploration of further musical possibilities.

    The thing about Pantera is that there can only be one Pantera. Ever. Period. The same thing goes for Black Sabbath. Did you expect Ozzy to create Black Sabbath version 2 with Blizzard Of Ozz? No. I personally think this stuff is pretty good. Not my favorite but at least he is doing something different, other that being stuck in a rut.
