Although Dee Snider's "House of Hair" radio show and website tout the motto "if it ain't metal, it's crap," it would be an unfortunate way to enjoy music living by this mantra. Yes, metalheads love metal - that goes without saying, but completely ignoring all the rest of music - namely the non-metal music that's inspired one's own heavy metal heroes - does a major disservice to lovers of music in general. And that's why it's important to learn about, and listen to, the artists and groups who have inspired the those who've inspired you.
Just a year and change since the release of Anthrax's newest album, For All Kings, and the band has been pedal-to-the-metal ever since. After For All King's debut at #9 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album’s chart marking the band’s highest chart debut in two decades, thrash masters Anthrax took to the road, and how. Worldwide touring, sold-out shows, sharing the stage with bands like Slayer, Death Angel, Lamb of God and more, and simply dominating at the biggest and best music festivals on the planet - 2016 was without a doubt the year of Anthrax, but it's very possible that 2017 is going to be as well.
While having just kicked off a massive North American, co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage called "KillThrax," Anthrax is also wielding a stunning, must-have For All Kings 7″ Vinyl Box Set. The limited edition release includes the album For All Kings in its entirety plus six demos, the Anthrax tune "Vice of the People” (previously available only as a Japanese bonus track), and two cover songs that will blow fans away.
Proving the "if it ain't metal, it's crap"-quip oh, so wrong, Anthrax reigns supreme on their versions of the White Stripes song "Black Math," and the Kansas classic, "Carry On Wayward Son."
