    Interview: Anthrax's Frank Bello and a 30-year 'State Of Euphoria'

    Saying that a band is still going strong after 37 years sounds cliche, but in the case of thrash masters, Anthrax, it couldn't be truer. From over 10 million records sold to countless tours to being the first metal band played on the planet Mars - Anthrax has done pretty much everything, and what...

    Interview: Anthrax's Charlie Benante fighting 'til the end

    Very few metal bands on the scene have the kind of fighting spirit that thrash metallers Anthrax has. Fighting, to keep a firm grasp on the reins at every level of success they've achieved as a band, and fighting - at least at one point in the groups' career - to even stay together as a band. And...

    Five reasons to see Lamb of God in concert

    Maybe you’ve seen Lamb of God at the Download, Sonisphere, or Mayhem Festival—or caught their electrifying act on the 2006 Gigantour (with Megadeth) or 2009-10 World Magnetic Tour (with Metallica). But once just ain’t enough when it comes to these Richmond hard rock heavyweights. Founded in 1994 by...

    Anthrax gears up for summer tour, unleashes new concert DVD

    Although it's not as if Anthrax has ever really slowed down much in their 37-year career, these thrash masters have been on one hell of a roll since the release of their eleventh studio album, For All Kings, released in February of 2016. And that momentum is going to keep on rolling beginning today...

    Interview: No time for drama with Testament's Steve Di Giorgio

    While most people experience some difficulty trying to balance out work and their kids' hockey games, let alone visits to the gym, the grocery store, and so on, it's easy to think that our favorite musicians have nothing but time to kill aside from those couple hours on stage each night - but that's...

    Anthrax's Charlie Benante relaunches coffee line

    Where the roads of metal music and coffee drinking converge - that's where you'll find Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante... A lover of the smell and taste of coffee since his youth, Benante launched his own line, "Benante's Blend," a couple years ago now. But just as he does with his music - ever...

    Anthrax debuts Kansas cover 'Carry On' live

    Despite the fact that thrash-legends Anthrax are still wielding material from their latest studio album, For All Kings, there's another 'new' song - well, new to Anthrax anyway - that's been making waves as well.

    'Killthrax' cohorts and support acts rock Texas Independence Fest to its core

    Throughout his musical career, Adam Dutkiewicz has held several titles: Killswitch Engage guitarist and album producer. A producer of many other bands. And the unlikeliest of them all -- $50,000 showcase winner on "The Price is Right."   On Saturday night in Austin, the man they simply call...

    Watch: Reigning momentum - an interview with Anthrax's Charlie Benante

    Certainly after three and a half decades on the job - any job - be it of a banker, a baker or a band member, a desire may arise to slow down a bit, to start taking things more in stride. But that's far from the case with the now-veteran thrash band Anthrax, who with more than 35 years in the rear...

    Anthrax releases cover of Kansas classic, ‘Carry On Wayward Son'

    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...

    Cleveland punk legends The Guns back on LP reissue

    Lots of teenage boys (and girls) take up guitar to channel their aggression. It’s practically a rite of passage in some places. Learn a few chords, crank it up, and let loose with whatever ails you. But not every band makes the transition from suburban garage or rec room to night club. Fewer still...
