ANTHRAX to Unleash 'Music Of Mass Destruction' DVD In April

ANTHRAX will release their much-anticipated live DVD, "Music Of Mass Destruction", on April 6 through Sanctuary Records.

Filmed at a sold-out Metro in Chicago on Friday, December 5, 2003, "Music Of Mass Destruction" reportedly captures what is being described as "the show to define the band's legendary career."

According to drummer Charlie Benante, "In the entire history of the band, this show was 'the one.' From the moment we went on until the very last note we played it was on." The drummer continues, "I'm really glad we documented this show, so everyone can see what I mean, it was so metal."

The disc will feature a vast array of bonus materials including separate band segments, a feature on famed comic book artist/painter/creator Alex Ross (who, in addition to his cover for last year's "We've Come For You All", will be providing the artwork for this release), 5.1 Surround Sound, two songs filmed in hyper–angle, as well as a bunch of hidden extras.

This widescreen DVD package will also come with an audio CD that will include highlights from the show.

The DVD track listing is as follows:

01. What Doesn't Die

In other ANTHRAX news, the band recently completed work on their upcoming CD, "Metallum Maximus Aeturnus", a project in which the band re-recorded classic ANTHRAX songs originally recorded by previous line-ups of the band (circa 1984-1990) live in the studio as part of their 20th Anniversary Celebration. The songs recorded were chosen by the fans who voted online at www.anthrax.com. The recording session culminated in a very special show at Avatar Studios in New York City. One hundred lucky fans were selected from thousands of entries to this invitation-only show in which the band performed many songs live that they haven't played in nearly 20 years.

ANTHRAX also spent a few days in Los Angeles to film the video for "What Doesn't Die", the punishing opening track off of their latest album, "We've Come For You All".

As reported earlier, the video was written and conceived by comic/writer Brian Posehn, know best for his work on "Mr. Show", "Just Shoot Me" and his own stand-up routine, and directed by Michael Sarna, who has previously worked on videos for 50 CENT, SMASHMOUTH and COUNTING CROWS.

A management spokesperson describes the concept of the video as "the most kick-ass, zombie-filled video of all time."
