PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS — now featuring Anselmo with guitarists Stephen Taylor (Superjoint) and Mike DeLeon (Flesh Horder, Being Killed, ex-MOD et al), drummer Jose Manuel “Blue” Gonzalez (Superjoint, Warbeast), and newest recruit Derek Engemann (Scour, ex-Cattle Decapitation) — released the critically-lauded Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue full-length last year via Anselmo’s own Housecore Records. Extreme, abrasive, aggressive, and anthemic, the record hinges on no holds-barred lyrical misanthropy and insurgent instrumental intricacy as it sharpens any and all edges to guillotine precision.
Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue is out now on CD, vinyl, and digital formats in North America via Housecore Records. Order bundles are currently available via the Housecore Store at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, go HERE.
