Posts Tagged ‘Superjoint’

One of my all time favorite frontman in metal will always be ex-Pantera/current Down and Superjoint legend Phil Anselmo. He will always be an icon in my opinion and that is why when I see he has a new release, I usually pay attention to it which is why for this week’s metal music video of the week, I chose the new track from the rebranded and reformed Superjoint called Caught Up In The Gears Of Application. This is the title track off the band’s latest disc which came out a couple of weeks ago and it’s like any other Superjoint track where it is punishing and chaotic at the same time. The music video the band presents is definitely unique in where it has that old time silent film feel and look to it while switching back and forth to the frontman singing the lyrics. Anselmo described the video very well saying, “The video is supposed to be as ridiculously abstract as the song itself.┬áBut regardless, it makes its ridiculous point(s) dreadfully well.” I couldn’t have said it better myself as you see the band dressed in old time clothing handing out flyers in New Orleans to people who look uninterested. Check out the video below:

ghostAnytime a cool band that wears make up or masks comes around, we always want to know what they look like especially when they’re hiding their identities. We wanted to know what Kiss looked like without makeup and that was answered years later on MTV. We wanted to know what members of Slipknot looked like without the masks and that was revealed once Joey Jordison and Corey Taylor de-masked themselves for their side projects respectfully. Ever since Swedish Satanic metal band Ghost came around with Papa Emertius, we have wondered who the man behind the makeup or mask (I think he’s wearing a mask) really is. There have always been rumors that it was musician Tobias Forge (he is in the books as a ghostwriter) and now that may just been confirmed thanks to a tweet. Tommy Victor of Prong unveiled a photo from New Orleans that specifically says Superjoint, Danzig, Prong, Ghost,… The man in the picture along with Glenn Danzig, Phil Anselmo, Sean Yseult, and Tommy Victor is Tobias Forge. This wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen him considering Nergal of Behemoth unveiled a photo of the two together before. The tweet has since been taken down, but we got it courtesy of Metalinjection.net. Check it out below and ask yourself, is that him?
