Horror icon Bill Moseley – most notable as Chop Top in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and Otis in Rob Zombie’s House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects – recently joined forces with extreme music legend Philip H. Anselmo for a collaborative release entitled Songs of Darkness and Despair.

Set for official unveiling on January 20 ,2017 via Anselmo’s own Housecore Records, the five-track offering was produced and performed by Anselmo and Stephen “The Big Fella” Berrigan and mastered by Scott Hull of Visceral Sound.

Songs of Darkness and Despair includes guest appearances by Kevin Bond (Superjoint) on guitar, Squizzy Squires (King Parrot) on bass and guitar, and José “Blue” Gonzalez (Superjoint, Warbeast) on percussion.

Comments Anselmo: “Working with Mr. Moseley was an awesome experience! Bill brought the lyrics and Stephen [Berrigan] and I just improvised directly on the spot, and squeezed out six tunes in three days. All the songs have a different vibe because I wanted the music to represent Bill’s lyrical vision(s), and we needed to, because Bill does indeed have a unique, visual element within his choice of words and phrasing. I love Bill Moseley, and can’t wait to work on the next one! Be cool and enjoy this one!”
