Jon Dette will fill in for drummer Charlie Benante on the first few weeks of ANTHRAX’s 29-city European tour that kicked off May 27, in Barcelona, Spain and runs until July 12 in Balingen, Germany. Benante, who had surgery on his hand last summer and has been going for regular physical therapy up until just recently, thought he’d be back to 100% for the Carolina Rebellion and Beale Street Music Festival shows that ANTHRAX also did earlier this month.

“Playing those shows, I realized I’m just not quite there yet,” Charlie said, “especially for the schedule ANTHRAX has on these European dates. I’m hoping to join the tour for the last couple of weeks, but until then, we all appreciate that Jon can sit in for me.”

Benante plans to be drumming on ANTHRAX’s handful of North American dates later this summer that include Heavy MTL in Montreal and the MOTÖRHEAD Motorboat Cruise set for late September with MOTÖRHEAD, MEGADETH, Zakk Wylde and others. Following these dates, ANTHRAX will enter the studio to write and record their follow-up to 2011’s Grammy-nominated Worship Music, named “Metal Album of the Year” by fans and in media outlets across the globe.

ANTHRAX “ANTHEMS” – A MUST Own! Legendary ANTHRAX Covers The Classics!

4 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4

ANTHRAX – Any red-blooded Metalhead knows that the (unreal) legendary ANTHRAX likes to have some extra fun with their Metal; and this goes back to those golden years of the 80’s. With Anthems, ANTHRAX definitely exhibits their appetite for Classic Rock with contagious and Heavy Rockin’ fun once again! With 6 cover songs, along with their original studio version of Crawl and a Crawl Remix, ANTHRAX have delivered a doozie of an EP to their fans (like myself).

ANTHRAX doesn’t cover these Rock classics with a Thrash Metal attack, as I had expected they would; instead ANTHRAX stays quite true to the original’s structures and gives these songs a much more harder, heavier and energetic push. Joey Balladonna just has an incredible knack for sounding like he should have been a huge Classic Rock star back in the glorious ’70’s. Joey Belladonna sounds grand on every song, from top-to-bottom.

The entire band grabs ahold of Anthem, TNT, Smokin’, Keep On Runnin’, Big Eyes and Jailbreak as if they truly thought this entire project over for years. There’s never a point where I wince or question as to why ANTHRAX have chosen to play these classics in such a classic way. Crawl (from 2011’s Worship Music) fits right into the mix of these Classic Rock gems. I guess  I never listened upon Crawl as being such a genuine Classic Rock song, up until now. The Crawl Remix is given much higher vibes, courtesy of the orchestration from Michael Lord.

ANTHRAX have proven to my ears their sincere appreciation for the Classic Rock era with Anthems. If you’re as loyal to the classics and ANTHRAX as I am, then this EP is an absolute, 100% must! ANTHRAX is a band that should be inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame… NOW! Metal be thy name.
