Anthrax was founded in 1981 by Danny Lilker and Scott Ian. The band became known as one of the most important thrash metal groups if the 1980’s, alongside contemporaries such as Metallica and Slayer. Innumerous changes to the lineup has brought in many new members, but Scott Ian has remained with the group since its foundation and remains with them today.
Anthrax’s debut album, Fistful of Metal, was released in 1984 and for the rest of the decade, Anthrax dominated the sound of metal music, with albums such as Spreading the Disease (1985), Among the Living (1987), and State of Euphoria (1988.) Persistence of Time brought Anthrax into the 1990’s, but their sound began to change and the albums Sound of White Noise (1993) and Stomp 422 (1995) didn’t fare quite as well. Anthrax took three years off to regroup, build their own studio in New York, and return with a new album on the Ignition label. Volume 8: The Threat is Real was released in 1998, followed by their first “hits” offering, Return of the Killer A’s: The Best Of (1999.) The change brought Anthrax into the next decade, and they launched a tour alongside Megadeth and Motley Crue in 2000.
In the new millennium, Anthrax released We’ve Come for You All (2003) and Worship Music (2011), and offered a number of live performances. Anthrax played to a sold-out crowd in 2008 in Chicago, opened for Iron Maiden in Columbia in 2009, and participated in the Soundwave Festival in Australia. They also performed alongside their thrash metal contemporaries, Slayer, Megadeth, and Metallica, at the 2010 Sonisphere festival, marking the first time all four had played together. Two additional studio albums followed—Worship Music (2011) and For All Kings (2016.)
The current lineup of Anthrax includes Scott Ian on guitars and vocals, Charles Benante on drums and percussion, Frank Bello on bass and vocals, Joey Belladonna on vocals, and Jonathan Donais on guitar. To date, the band has sold over fifteen million albums and they show no signs of slowing down. The band recently announced plans for their next studio album, expected in 2018, and wrapped and extensive 2017 tour. Anthrax was also recently nominated for three Loudwire Music Awards, for Best Live Band, Best Drummer, and Best Bassist.
