Anselmo and engineered by Stephen “The Big FellaBerrigan, will hit stores and digital retailers on April 2, 2013 via Housecore Records.

See what the press is saying about War of the Gargantuas:

“Veterans of the scene, WARBEAST don’t simply rely on the ’80s template. Rather, they blow it up and rebuild it into an even more vicious and vital monster… This is everything ANSELMO fans and metal fans have been hoping for and so much more. As with all of his projects, you’ve got to hear it to believe it.” – ArtistDirect.com

“The combination of PHILIP ANSELMO and WARBEAST make War Of The Gargantuas a vicious, brutal onslaught of metal that creates the ultimate teaser for both bands.”- Bloody-Disgusting.com

“…ANSELMO’s solo contributions to an upcoming split with WARBEAST, War of the Gargantuas, so delight me: they sound just, like, completely fucking fucknuts… It sounds as though ANSELMO is about to release the aural equivalent of a broken glass bath.” – MetalSucks.net

In addition to this week’s release of War of the GargantuasDOWN and WARBEAST kick off The Weed & Speed Tour: West Coast Throwdown in the Year of XIII in Houston, TX tonight at Warehouse Live!
