Back in 2012, it was a pretty big deal that the previously unheard Pantera track “Piss” was released, considering Pantera really had no “lost” tracks or b-sides to speak of. Now in an interview with Capital Chaos TV, frontman Phil Anselmo has revealed that he’s found an instrumental track that he never laid vocals on top of.
Anselmo adds that the song isn’t a huge to-do and seems like it’s just riffs going back and forth, but still! It’s Pantera, and we haven’t heard it.
“That’s interesting, because I did find a track I cannot make heads or tails out of and I know it’s the guys… But I never did vocals over the top of it, and I’m sure back in the day there was good reason for it. It doesn’t really do much — it’s like riffs back and forth and that’s that — so it must’ve been just a… I guess, a mulling type of idea that had gone on. Either we put it to bed or just moved on, because, truthfully, [with] Pantera there really was not that much [unreleased material] laying [around], there really wasn’t. We used almost everything that we… um, would come up with, I guess, you know.”
Maybe it’ll surface at some point or another, but it doesn’t sound like it’s going to be another “Piss.” Still, it’ be pretty cool to hear.
