PANTERA's ANSELMO: "Enough Is Enough" - Feb. 16, 2002

PANTERA frontman Philip Anselmo has sensationally hinted to the Dutch Aardschok magazine that he may quit the Texas metal act before another studio album is recorded. In the March 2002 issue of the publication, Anselmo states that "PANTERA was my home for many, many years. I don't have a problem with anyone in the band. PANTERA gave me a lot, and I wouldn't be the same person without them. But I think we lost a piece of what we once stood for. Reinventing [The Steel] was a step in the right direction, but it's just not like it used to be anymore. There is a time [when] you have to say: enough is enough. I don't want to be a heavy metal grandpa. I'm 33 and have broken all the bones in my body serving PANTERA. But I'm not 22 anymore. I just don't get the feeling I used to singing 'Cowboys From Hell' or 'Walk'. No one knows what the future holds, but our last tour was with SLAYER, and I don't think there could be a better-ending tour. I don't want to go on and on like JUDAS PRIEST or SABBATH. I prefer [the] SOUNDGARDEN [approach], who called it a day at the peak of their fame." When pressed to be more specific about what this meant with respect to PANTERA's future, Phil responded simply that "it means what it means, and we shall see..." [translated from Dutch]

that sucks... I'm hoping for at least one more Pantera album...

THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS Prepare New CD, Announce European Appearances - Feb. 15, 2002


THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS are currently in intensive songwriting sessions for the follow-up to the group's quadruple-platinum Californication CD, which is tentatively set for a June release. Guitarist John Frusciante recently commented on the initial rehearsals for the forthcoming effort: "There was just all kinds of new rhythms and new sounds and nobody really sounded anything like themselves. We weren't playing the way we play on Californication. The energy, the whole energy was even more so whatever the energy on Californication is. It was that energy multiplied. That alone makes me really excited about the next record because we just have a completely new sound just because we've all given a lot of thought to music in the last year-and-a-half and we've gotten really tight."

Over 2,000 SLIPKNOT Fans Turned Away At Glasgow In-Store - Feb. 14, 2002

Over 2,000 SLIPKNOT fans were turned away from a scheduled SLIPKNOT in-store appearance at Glasgow's Virgin Megastore this afternoon, February 14th, after more than 3,000 people showed up in hopes of meeting their masked heroes. According to a NME.com account, the doors were locked at noon after 1,000 devotees were already packed inside the store and police units were called to help in-store security staff turn away the disappointed fans. No incidence of vandalism or rioting was reported, and the crowd eventually dispersed after politely chanting, "We want in." "I guess you can't please everybody all the time," SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison told NME. "We always used to stay till everyone was done, but now we can't really do that anymore. It's sad for everyone who couldn't get in."

KORN's "Untouchables": Four Million Dollars And Counting - Feb. 14, 2002

KORN's forthcoming fifth full-length album, titled Untouchables, has reportedly cost nearly four million dollars to produce, according to bassist Fieldy. "We spent a lot of time on it, and money. We're up to like three-and-a-half million on it now, which is ridiculous for a record." Untouchables is currently being mixed by Andy Wallace (i.e. SOULFLY, LIMP BIZKIT) and is due to be released on May 14th through Immortal/Epic Records. The first single from the release is set to impact radio February 25th, but the title of the song has not yet been announced.

If they spent that much $$$ to make this album.. it sure as hell should ROCK!
