ANTHRAX's JOEY BELLADONNA Sings National Anthem At Buffalo Bills Vs. Minnesota Vikings Game (Video)

ANTHRAX frontman Joey Belladonna sang the U.S. national anthem yesterday (Thursday, August 10) before Minnesota Vikings' preseason game against the Buffalo Bills at the New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York. Video footage of his rendition can be seen below.

ANTHRAX bassist Frank Bello told Metal-Rules.com in an interview about Belladonna: "I have to tell you and this is not a kiss-up to Joey but he's better now than he has ever been. I stand on stage with him every night and the dude is just a phenomenon. I never heard of any singer that doesn't warm up and can still sing like he does. I'm a background singer and have things that I do to prepare. He is so consistent, and I'm a fan of his voice. He has a gift from God, and it's a beautiful gift. I'm thankful to be in a band with him."

Belladonna rejoined ANTHRAX for the 2010 "Big Four" shows, in the process helping inspire a new wave of creativity, beginning with 2011's "Worship Music".

"I think the best decision we ever made was getting our relationship with Joey back and just kind of repairing it and putting everything aside and just being on the same page again and just making music again that really means a lot to us," ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante told "Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon". "And I think that's a big thing. And all the insecurities and all the idiosyncracies and all the bullshit that goes with it, just fucking throw it out the window, because it doesn't mean… It never really meant anything, but back in the day, it meant more. Nowadays, it doesn't mean shit."

Benante recently confirmed that ANTHRAX has commenced the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2016's "For All Kings" album. Also in the works is a twentieth-anniversary expanded reissue of ANTHRAX's "State Of Euphoria" album, which is scheduled for release in 2018.
