Unreleased Pantera/White Zombie collaboration surfaces online

'Dawn Of The Horrible Gorilla' is now circulating on the internet

A previously unreleased track, which is said to feature Pantera singer Phil Anselmo and guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott, has surfaced online.

The track, which is titled ‘Dawn Of The Horrible Gorilla’ and also features former White Zombie bass player Sean Yseult, can be heard over on Soundcloud after Yseult posted it online earlier today (July 20).

‘Dawn Of The Horrible Gorilla’ was reportedly recorded at 6am in a hotel room in 1992 when Pantera and White Zombie were touring together.

The track has never featured on any compilation or rarities package, in fact no one knew it existed at all until it was released online by Yseult.


Abbott passed away in December 2004 after being shot on stage by a deranged fan. The guitarist was performing in new project Damageplan after Pantera had undertaken an extended break.

Abbott‘s brother Vinnie Paul, who was also the drummer in both Pantera and Damageplan, has stringently denied any suggestion that there will be any kind of reformation of the ‘Cowboys From Hell’ metallers without his brother.
