Recently, Philip Anselmo has been getting heat about shouting white power at a dimebash concert event in January 2016. This is my response. Black people say black power all the time and nobody makes a big uproar about it. Why, because there is nothing fucking wrong with it. White's should not be condemned for saying white power either. White's are not treated equal in this sence and the past should never be held against today's white people. White's need to not be afraid of their power and embrace it but not use it to hurt others. Phil did NO wrong and HASN'T HURT ANYONE by shouting white power except those who associate white power with racism. If you were offended by Phil's words then you are ignorant. Those who can't acknowledge white's for their accomplishments and powerful achievements are racist themselves. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING PROUD OF WHO THE FUCK YOU ARE, black, white, and everything in between. Embrace your roots, your culture and don't be afraid to shout it out in a crowd. There are good people in ever color. I respect Phil's actions and believe he was very courageous with his words. Phil not only made a stand for white's but he also made a stand for himself and who he is and in today's world that takes balls, especially if you're white. Pike

Eternal Darkness is about those who are trapped in total darkness with no way to escape. The people the song refers to are those who have burned all their bridges with whoever and wherever they have gone in life. These individuals have have turned away from anyone or anything good in their lives and have hurt too many people to go back. Those who dwell in eternal darkness are the ones who have gone to the point of no return. For hurting so many others in such an irreversible way these individuals have earned their own place and are forever lost in blackness, eternal darkness.
Working with Chris has been a blast since day one! We both have busy lives outside of music, but we both understand each other. There seems to be a chemistry between the both of us, as if we've been brothers since birth. The love is BIG and the passion just grows on ya! The passion for what we're doing grows every time we unite. Chris has deep Metal roots; as a child he was shocked by the sounds of Black Sabbath and from then on he decided to pursue a life as a musician. As a young guitar player and bassist, Chris played with his heart. Every time we get together I always see the same thing. In my experience working with Chris I have seen that he's genuine. His work on "Eternal Darkness" fucking blew me away! After he first laid down those solos, we listened to 'em over and over just to get the hair on our necks to stand up from the high squeals and spiraling dive bombs. I'm very excited to be working with Chris, his skills and passion are exactly what Set4th is about. Pike, Set4th

Went to the best screen printing shop in the Seattle area wed and was asked if I was sure that I wanted to use all of the prints that I chose for the new Set4th Man In Black hoodies. The guy said that the hoodies are not going to be cheap with all the printing placements. I replied by telling the guy that I would like the design how it is and would not like to change it despite the costs. When I finished designing the hoodie I was very excited about the overall look. This is something Set4th fans are going to wear on their backs with pride! The original design for the hoodie will feature a hand drawn scythe resembling the man in black's scythe from the upcoming "Black Thread" video drawn by yours truly. The hoodie will also feature the original Set4th logo, and some very brutal lookin' script.
Set4th advice: When you put your dream down on a piece of paper, don't ever let anyone convince you change it. Pike

SET4TH DOESN'T STAND TO SEEK FAME NOR FORTUNE. SET4TH IS ABOUT DOING, LIVING IN THE NOW. THIS IS WHAT SET4TH STANDS FOR. WHETHER IT BE FOR ONE FAN OR FOR MORE IT DOESN'T MATTER! SET4TH WILL CONTINUE DOING WHAT THE FANS LOVE THE MOST, CREATING MORE MUSIC AND VIDEOS. IN RECENT MONTHS VOCALIST, PIKE, HAS DONE EXACTLY THAT BY OVERCOMING VERY CHALLENGING OBSTACLES THAT HE HAS FACED WHILE FILMING SET4TH'S MOST RECENT UPCOMING MUSIC VIDEOS, "SCREAMIN DEMONS" AND "BLACK THREAD." "BLACK THREAD" WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING VIDEO EVER CREATED FOR SET4TH, AS PARTS OF IT WAS FILMED INSIDE "APE CAVE'S 'UPPER CAVE'." ANOTHER CHALLENGING PART OF THE FILMING OF "BLACK THREAD" WAS THE EIGHT MILE ROUNDTRIP HIKE TO AND FROM "THE MONTE CRISTO 'GHOST TOWN'." "SCREAMIN DEMONS" WAS ANOTHER VERY CHALLENGING VIDEO TO FILM. PARTS OF "SCREAMIN DEMONS" WAS FILMED INSIDE THE DANGER ZONE OF THE FAMOUS "BIG FOUR ICE CAVES" JUST OUTSIDE OF VERLOT, WA. THIS IS THE ONE TIME PIKE LITERALLY PUT HIS OWN LIFE ON THE LINE FOR ROCK 'N ROLL. THE SHOTS PIKE GOT FOR "SCREAMIN DEMONS" ARE ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE. PIKE CONTINUES TO THRUST FORWARD AND THROUGH THIS HE HAS SHOWN THE WORLD THAT NOTHING CAN STAND IN BETWEEN HIM AND HIS FANS AS HE POURS OUT TRUE DEDICATION THROUGH HIS MUSIC. SET4TH'S TWO UPCOMING MUSIC VIDEOS "BLACK THREAD" AND "SCREAMIN DEMONS" WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON DECEMBER FIRST TWO THOUSAND AND TWELVE. THEY WILL BE RELEASED ON SET4TH'S NEW "SCREAMIN VIDEOS" DVD. THE DVD WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE AT SET4THOFFICIAL.COM ON THE "DVD DESTRUCTION ZONE" PAGE.
At one point in my young adult life I was homeless and alone, I never would have thought that a beast was resting inside of me just waiting for the right time to awake. When I perform in front of an audience, my wife, or by myself, I can feel an energy that completely morphs me into a Metal Monster that I never imagined I could be. Once I record a song it's usually a couple years after I have written and played it live, but when I hear my own creation enter my own ears from a nearly finished recording, I feel very excited and very proud of my achievement. It makes it even more exciting when I share my product for the first time. To hear people tell me they enjoyed it, that it rocks, or that it's awesome, only encourages me to remain as the morphed monster that began to transform me in 2001 during the beginning of Set4th. PA
