Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo spoke in an interview with Andivero and explained his thoughts about experiencing death and how it affected his view on life and spirituality. He said:

“Make no mistake, I have died before, there’s no faking death. If you can imagine how you felt before you were born, it was that level of insignificance and impossibility, so I stand hard by my anti-theist views.

I’m a staunch atheist. I wear it as no front or identity. It’s just my personal belief. The religious themselves don’t bother me really at all. Whatever it takes to have a person make it through the day.

Whatever strength they can gain to help them fight through this mortal coil, more power to them, just don’t push it on me.”
