Former PANTERA singer PHIL ANSELMO covered the deep cut “We’ll Grind That Axe For a Long Time” from the band’s final studio record “Reiventing The Steel” during a show his band THE ILLEGALS played in Osaka, Japan last week. It was the first time he’s performed the song live.

PHIL ANSELMO would tell the crowd prior to breaking “We decided for a special occasion… always when you come to a different country — special occasion,”
“First and foremost, these songs always, always, always are a tribute and love to Vinnie Paul and Dime,” he continued. “Pantera never played this song that we’re about to play, we never played it live. This is the first time we’ve ever played it live ever.”
“This is special, this is for the hardcore Pantera fans who remember. This is called ‘We’ll Grind That Axe for a Long Time.'”
