Superjoint Ritual was an American heavy metal band formed by Phil Anselmo, Joe Fazzio, and Jimmy Bower in the early 1990s, later to be joined by Hank Williams III, and Kevin Bond. The name comes from a lyric in the Darkthrone song, “The Pagan Winter.” According to Bower, Anselmo wrote 70-80% of the group’s music. Their style is considered to be a mix of Pantera’s groove metal and hardcore punk. A small trace of black metal can also be heard. A dispute between Anselmo and Fazzio led to the band’s eventual split in late 2004, this was confirmed by Hank Williams III and Jimmy Bower. Use Once and Destroy was their first release. It was recorded in lead singer Phil Anselmo’s barn turned recording studio in Louisiana. The guitar and bass work was done by Anselmo and Eyehategod’s Jimmy Bower. Anselmo did not want to play guitar live because he wanted to focus mainly on singing so Superjoint Ritual recruited Hank Williams III. “Fuck Your Enemy” was directed by Jim Van Bebber. Van Bebber won a scholarship to film school based on his eight-millimeter kung fu epic Into the Black. Instead of using a bank loan to pay for a second year of college, he used the money to finance Deadbeat at Dawn. He has also directed music videos for Pantera, Skinny Puppy & Necrophagia.
