Over the past 30 years, Anthrax has achieved sales in excess of 10-million. The band has also received multiple Gold and Platinum albums, multiple Grammy nominations, and a host of other accolades from the media, industry and fans.
Anthrax continues to tour and provide their fans with a show that is a headbangers feast. And we had a chance to catch them last night at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ.
With Joey Belladonna fronting the band again, Anthrax made their way to the stage in front of a house full of metal thrashing fans. And the fans were ready for what Anthrax was about to serve up as they opened with Fight’em Till You Can’t. Joey’s vocals were top notch as he was all over the stage, getting the fans fire up, as if they weren’t already all fired up from Testament and DeathAngel, who opened the show.
Anthrax served up a healthy dose of heavy metal. While I was a little disappointed that they didn’t play more songs off their current album “Worship Music,” the band put on an amazing performance that quenched my thirst. Their set included Caught In A Mosh, Death Rider, and Antisocial. After finishing their set with In My World, Anthrax left the stage but returned a few minutes later for a four-song encore including the Joe Jackson cover of Got The Time and ended the show with I Am The Law.
After 30 years, Anthrax still has what it takes to put on a killer show which would satisfy any headbangers appetite.
