Philip H. Anselmo is on his first-ever solo tour with his band, the Illegals. The Technicians of Distortion trek is one not to be missed, as evidenced by the fan-filmed footage of the trek, which has begun to pop up online and gives fans an idea of what to expect when Anselmo and his crew roll through town like wrecking balls.

The late, great Dimebag Darrell would be immensely proud. Philip Anselmo and the Illegals played a secret show in Covington, La. on Tuesday, July 30 ahead of their upcoming national tour and they invited a terminally ill young fan named Peyton Arens onto the stage to perform and shred to the Pantera classic 'Walk.'
Twenty-one seconds. That's all you will get of Philip H.

It was true clash of the metal titans when Philip Anselmo joined Slayer to perform a live rendition of a Pantera classic in Greece. That's too much metal awesomeness for one stage. Headbangers, it's Slaytera.
