New Anthrax Album
For All Kings
Release date: 2/26/16
North American Record Label:
“For All Kings” is already been getting stellar reviews:
“‘For All Kings’ is Anthrax
at their finest.”
“Its 13 tracks are an amalgam of everything a fan could want from an Anthrax release; it’s heavy, brutal, thrashy, bursting at the seams with razor sharp riffing, the beats are pounding and complex and Joey Belladonna’s pipes are beyond exquisite.”
“With Scott Ian’s ultra-light, fast-riffing, Charlie Benante’s thunderous drumming, Frank Bello’s manic presence and deep bass grooves, Jonathan Donais’ dexterous solos and Joey Belladonna’s voice in top form, Anthrax is an absolute beast of a band in 2016.”
“Anthrax is back with a face melting new album.”
“It’s abundantly apparent that this is no ordinary Anthrax album…this is by far the most unpredictable and deeply interesting album the band has released since ‘Persistence of Time’ and ‘The Sound of White Noise.'”
After a long hiatus, Babylon A.D. re-formed with all its original members and released a four-song EP Fresno, The Lost Sessions in 2014. That year the band also played several shows in the U.S. as well as the FireFest Rock Festival in Nottingham, England. In 2015 they released a live record, LIVE@XXV to celebrate their twenty-five years of recording and performing together. Most recently Babylon A.D. performed on the 2015 Monsters of Rock Cruise along with Bay Area favorites Y&T, Tesla and Night Ranger. Babylon A.D. have just been added to the “Monsters of Rock” West Coast cruise for 2016, with additional tour dates currently being added.
