with Godforbid / Sworn Enemy / Manntis


"20 Years of Maximum Metal" is Anthax's calling card, and this reunion tour is out to prove it. In early 2005, original Anthrax members Joey Belladonna (vocals), Frankie Bello (guitar), Charlie Benante (drums), Scott Ian (bass) and Danny Spitz (guitar) regrouped for their first performances together since 1992. In the wake of the nation's ACTUAL anthrax scare, the band even took up the cause of opposing anthrax-vaccine administration and the misuse of REAL heavy metals (i.e. depleted uranium, mercury and lead). Though Anthrax's biggest hit was a one-off collaboration with Public Enemy ("Bring Tha Noize"), the band is widely regarded among the elite forefathers of thrash metal.
