Watch Phil Anselmo Perform Pantera’s “We’ll Grind That Axe For A Long Time” Live For The First Time

Phil Anselmo recently played Pantera’s “We’ll Grind That Axe For A Long Time” live for the first time. The performance took place during The Illegals’ January 30 show at the Umeda Club Quattro in Osaka, Japan. Anselmo told the audience the following:

“These songs always, always, always are a tribute and love to Vinnie Paul and Dime. Pantera never played this song that we’re about to play — we never played it live. This is the first time we’re performing it live ever. Hey, this is special. This is one for the hardcore Pantera fans.”
