ANTHRAX: New Song Clip Posted Online

An audio clip of a rehearsal/demo version of a brand new ANTHRAX song, entitled "Fight 'Em 'Till You Can't Fight No More", can be heard on the intro page to the band's official web site. ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian previously described the track as "straight-up 1988[-style thrash] through a 2007 filter."

In a December 2007 online chat, ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante stated about the group's new material, "It's hard nowadays to try and relive 1986. We were different in 1986. We can reach inside and pull out some of the old school and make ourselves make that music, but we don't. The song 'Fight 'Em 'Till You Can't' is as organic as it gets; it's not forced and it is like an old-school thrash song."

New photos of the group can be found at this location.

In a recent interview with Banned Promotions, new ANTHRAX singer Dan Nelson whose voice was previously described by Scott Ian as "like [previous ANTHRAX frontman] John Bush on steroids" stated about how he landed the gig, "I contacted Rob Caggiano [ANTHRAX guitarist] about jamming through MySpace. I originally laid down tracks for a side project Rob is doing. He told me after I was done recording he thought I would be a good fit for ANTHRAX. I was contacted by Charlie [Benante, drums] shortly after and auditioned. The rest, as they say, is history!"

Regarding the direction of the band's upcoming CD, Nelson said, "Things are going great. Fans are going to be real pleased with the new album. It's heavy as hell, and definitely has those thrash elements that ANTHRAX is best known for!"

A song from Nelson's previous band DEVILSIZE, titled "Taken", can be heard at this location.
