ANTHRAX has sold in excess of ten million units, received multiple gold and platinum certifications, six Grammy nominations and a host of other accolades from the media, industry and fans. In 1991, their music helped break down race and genre barriers when they collaborated with PUBLIC ENEMY on "Bring The Noise". And, of course, along with METALLICA, SLAYER and MEGADETH, ANTHRAX helped pioneer the thrash/metal genre as a member of the "Big Four".
ANTHRAX's latest album, "For All Kings" sold 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart.
ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante told The Aquarian Weekly that he was motivated to conjure a vintage ANTHRAX vibe during the early stages of writing "For All Kings".
"The first three or four songs I had for this record were flat-out thrash, a throwback to the old days, and they needed to be written," he explained. "I became possessed by my guitar. It was like my guitar was making me write these songs."
After penning the first few speed-laden tunes, the band chose to get adventurous.
"We wanted to explore different types of songs, and have this musical landscape that takes you somewhere from start to finish," Benante said.
ANTHRAX has joined forces with SLAYER and DEATH ANGEL for a seven-week North American tour. The trek kicked off in Cleveland on September 9.
