    Default Anthrax

    This is from Blabbermouth.com. I think it's a horrible idea....


    ANTHRAX: BELLADONNA-Era Lineup To Reunite For OZZFEST 2005? - Jan. 23, 2005

    According to a posting at the S.O.D. & M.O.D. Fansite, Sharon Osbourne has promised ANTHRAX a slot at this year's Ozzfest if they play at the 10-year anniversary edition of festival with the classic lineup that was responsible for some of the band's most successful albums:

    Joey Belladonna - Vocals
    Dan Spitz - Guitars
    Frank Bello - Bass
    Scott Ian - Guitars
    Charlie Benante – Drums

    A reunion of the Belladonna-era lineup has been rumored for quite some time, with SHADOWS FALL drummer Jason Bittner going so far as to say that Benante admitted that such a tour was in the works in a conversation with Bittner last month immediately following the public memorial for slain DAMAGEPLAN/ex-PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.

    In his regular online column, dubbed "Blast Beat", Benante jokingly dismissed the rumors with the following statement:

    "I keep hearing about this 'reunion' [with former vocalist Joey Belladonna]. I guess things got a bit outta hand. We were talking about doing a KISS reunion. We're all going to wear KISS makeup and go out and do a KISS reunion tour. I'll be Eric Singer doing Peter Criss and YES, I'll also be singing 'Black Diamond' and 'Beck' (haha). I need to figure out a way to play in 8-inch heels. I think that's how the rumors started, maybe it was Jason from [SHADOWS FALL]? Who knows what evil thoughts lurk in the minds of... never mind."

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    Danny Spitz and Scott Ian despise one another. Belladonna's voice was struggling 12 years ago and I'm sure has not gotten better with age, and Frank Bello is playing with Helmet because he's not interested in Anthrax right now. I think the chances are remote at best.

    Why can't Anthrax play Ozzfest unless it's a reunion? I personally prefer the John Bush era to the Belladonna years myself. We've Come For You All is one of the best metal albums I've heard in a long time.

    They were going to do a tour with both singers a couple of years ago, but Belladoofus pulled a "DLR" whereas he wanted too much of a percentage.

    Went to the show last night at the House of Blues and I must say Anthrax kicked some ass. The sound was great and the band was pretty tight with the exception of a couple of songs where Dan Spitz was having some guitar troubles, but Scotty kept it together. I like all era's of Anthrax, but nothing beats the "Among the Living" lineup. Crowd was into Joey. Here are the songs I can remember in no particular order:

    Among the Liiving
    Got The Time
    Caught In A Mosh
    Madhouse
    AIR
    Anti-Social
    I Am The Law
    Panic
    Medusa
    In My World
    Keep It In The Family
    N.F.L.
    I'm The Man
    Be All, End All
    Death Rider
    Metal Thrashing Mad
    Indians

    I think thats it, can't remember
    Ever Onward
    Time Waits For No One
    Its Never To Late To Mend

    I read an interview with Charlie, and it came down to this: Bush's wife had a baby in late October, and so he opted out of touring.

    Belante is behind Bush all the way, this is just a "project".

    No plans at the moment, other than the tour...

    The interview is posted at www.maximummetal.com

    __________________________________________________ ____________
    JOEY BELLADONNA

    CHARLIE BENANTE

    SCOTT IAN

    DANNY SPITZ
    Creation and destruction. They’re fundamental building blocks of life, shaping all we have and determining all we know. You can sugarcoat it all you want, but the results are all the same—Life is created, life is destroyed, and the world goes on. In between? We live, we love, we laugh, we cry, we mourn. Life takes us on flights of uninhibited fancy, and life sends us down roads of unrelenting turmoil. Through the creation, through the destruction, and through the bittersweet ironies that consume us in the process… In the midst of it all, there is heavy metal.

    And in the midst of the metal, there is Anthrax.

    When their peers zigged, Anthrax zagged. Not to be contrary, but to be honest. What is life, if it can’t be lived with honesty, integrity, and a fundamental appreciation for where we came from, and where we’re going? And what is metal, if it isn’t honest?

    “Anthrax? The cover of "Fistful of Metal" says it all. I bought that fucker when it came out in 84, without hearing even so much as a note. They haven't disappointed me since. Unmistakable riffs, mindfuck drumming and classic songs – they've opened too many doors to mention. Badasses. They are better than your band." — Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters

    Anthrax are pioneers of the American metal scene, and patriots in music’s new world order. They fought for liberation before the music industry even knew it was shackled, breaking down barriers that, at the time, few of us even knew existed. In the ‘80s, Anthrax were amongst the leaders of the heavy metal insurgence. In the ‘90’s, they were among the few survivors of heavy metal’s apocalypse. And with the dawning of a new millennium, they’ve remained as unabashedly potent as they’d ever been.

    “In the pantheon of modern metal, Anthrax are certainly a cornerstone, and if one listens, one can hear their influence on any number of up-and-coming bands of the new generation.” — Kirk Hammett, Metallica

    In the summer of 2005, for the first time in over twenty years, that very cornerstone will once again tremble the very foundation of heavy metal as we know it. The evolution of metal’s revolution has been televised, but now it’s time to experience the resurgence in real time. Anthrax may have never gone away, but they’re about to reunite in a way many never thought possible — the classic lineup. The classic songs. Timeless metal, from a timeless band.

    Joey Belladonna, Frank Bello, Charlie Benante, Scott Ian and Dan Spitz… Among the living once again. Metal thrashing mad and spreading the disease.

    “It’s time to go out onstage and stand with Charlie, Scott, Joey and Dan and create that vibe again,” says Frank Bello, who left Anthrax little more than a year ago, and in the short time since has been leaving his indelible mark as bassist in the seminal aggro-outfit Helmet. “This is gut-check time, and something in my gut tells me the time is right. There’s a magic with the five of us, an energy that can’t be touched. It’s a powerful, powerful buzz. We have something to finish, and a younger generation needs to see it… This is about completing unfinished business.”

    “Anthrax is one of the most kick-ass American metal bands of all time. They have outlasted every trend to come along in the last twenty years, and are still relevant today.” — Vinnie Paul, Pantera/Damageplan

    “I see a wah-wah pedal, and I’m like a kid again. I’m on fire,” says guitarist Dan Spitz, who has spent the last decade in self-imposed isolation since his departure from Anthrax more than ten years ago. Not only did Spitz leave the band, but he left music in his past and didn’t turn back, tearing the stereos out of his cars, removing the music from his house, giving his guitars away, and going back to school, where he went from shredding through “Got The Time,” to mending time, becoming one of the world’s most coveted master watch makers. “The same passion that I used to have in Anthrax, I had about watch making. Now again, I have the same passion about getting onstage and pummeling people. It’s time to fire up the Spitz arsenal and destroy people once again — Anthrax is back.”

    That’s not to say that Anthrax ever went anywhere.

    Through the mid-‘80s to early-‘90s, Anthrax reigned as heavy metal hierarchy, their thrash metal tendencies crashing head-on with an uncanny ability to fuse molten rhythms, infectious melodies, and unbridled metal into damn-near perfect songs. After parting ways with frontman Joey Belladonna in 1992, they returned with Armored Saint frontman John Bush at the helm for the epic Sound Of White Noise in 1993. It was a new twist in a story that had no intention of ending.

    “We’re still making records, we’re still touring, and we’re still relevant after twenty years,” says guitarist Scott Ian, the only founding member of Anthrax to be with the band throughout their entire career. “Even this reunion, though, is organic — We just celebrated our 20th Anniversary as a band, we’re all alive, and we can do this. What better reason is there?”

    How many reasons do you need? Anthrax have sold more than 10 million records worldwide, been nominated for three Grammy Awards, crossed the globe on more than fifty tours spanning 32 countries on five continents, released ten studio albums, and have left an indelible mark on the music industry. They said rap and metal could never mix, but Anthrax made it happen first, their 1991 collaboration with Public Enemy on the rappers’ “Bring The Noise” toppling social barriers between styles that few thought could co-exist. By the end of the decade, Anthrax could be credited with breaking ground on a whole new genre in the world of hard rock and heavy metal.

    Yet, through it all, they never took themselves too seriously.

    While their contemporaries seemed to be in competition amongst themselves to be the baddest band in the land, Anthrax defied the trends by stepping onstage in the same clothes they walked the streets in.

    “It was never an idea of wanting to be different, it was just what we looked like,” says Ian of the band’s onstage fashion. “We’re the same as our audience, regular guys. It wasn’t about leather, bullet belts and spikes, it was about shorts, sneakers and t-shirts. That’s who we were, and that’s what we wore—Why should we look any different onstage? It was never about putting on a band face, it was just about being ourselves.”

    “The world of music, to me, is about pioneers and groundbreakers doing bold and daring things in the face of critics and nay-sayers, only to have everybody snatch credit when that innovation is overstood as the fabric of the terrain. There is no question in my mind regarding my friends Anthrax in this regard, dragging me along in the process of making history. They pushed the envelope, and they set a high bar on killer shows and max-throttled songs that have not only entertained, but inspired, as well.” — Chuck D, Public Enemy

    It was 1987, and Anthrax were fresh off the success of their Among The Living breakthrough when they blew the roof off metal convention with their Rodney Dangerfield-inspired rap send-off “I’m The Man.” It was a far cry from “Madhouse” and “Indians,” and Joey Belladonna remembers it well.

    “I remember thinking, ‘What are you guys doing?!? Did I walk into the wrong room?” Raised on a diet of classic rock — Belladonna auditioned for Anthrax with an a capella rendition of Journey, and was hired on the spot — the frontman admittedly didn’t share the band’s love for the sounds of the inner cities (he was, after all, upstate New York, to their Big Apple roots), but the magic of the moment was hardly lost in the translation. “Everybody talks about it as the big rap thing, but the fact of the matter is, they pulled it off, and it gave us a bit of a sense of humor, and I think that was very important. We were just enjoying ourselves, and I like that. I can only hope that continues to come through today.”

    “We were one of the first, if not the first, to come out wearing shorts, playing aggressive music, and smiling while we were doing it,” says drummer Charlie Benante, whose tenure in the band is second only to Ian.

    Without hesitation, Benante credits his decision to reunite, in a large part, to the recent murder of longtime friend and Anthrax fan and Pantera/Damageplan guitarist Dimebag Darrell. “When Dime was killed, that really changed the way I thought about things. Dealing with that, having to face mortality, it was a very emotional time… They always say that with the bad, comes good — Is it just how life goes, and you’re supposed to meet up with these people again? Does it take a tragedy to bring people back together? I don’t know, but who knows when we’ll have the chance to do this again…”

    “Anthrax is, to me, one of the most influential bands of my generation, albeit one of the most underrated, with no real reason to be—They are concise, they are fast, they’re just all-around fuckin’ bad-ass. Whether they had Belladonna or Bush, they remain one of the best bands out there, bar none.” — Corey Taylor, Slipknot

    “We started this band as kids, and that’s all I knew,” says Spitz. “A band is the sum of the parts, and every part has its own magic that makes it memorable. Everyone offers something that makes it what it is in the end, and if you substitute any one person, that changes the results. There was a magic with us in Anthrax, and while that collaboration was a mystery at times, it worked… And I just can’t wait to do it again.”



    What is it? Caught in a mosh.

    Joey Belladonna, Frank Bello, Charlie Benante, Scott Ian, Dan Spitz have returned.

    Default Anthrax Reunion is over

    Don't really care about this reunion, I just find it good to see that some bands actually communicate and reach out to their fans at times.


    http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/...n_is_over.html


    Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has issued the following statement via the band's official fan club site, CDC:

    "Finally, we're going back to work. We're going to Chicago to work our asses off and write a record. It's time. We're ready. One problem... no singer.

    "We were offered a direct support slot on a major tour this spring and Joey [Belladonna, vocals] decided he did not want to move forward. The reunion is over. We tried to make it work but I guess that's the problem, you can't 'make' something work. It's gotta be natural and at least becoming a band again and playing live was.


    "Over the course of around 140 shows we became a better band than we ever were before from 1984 - 92. The shows we played from April 2005 through October 2006 were incredible and some of the best gigs we've ever played. Doing Donington again was mind-blowing, Graspop was insane, the insanity in Finland, Chicago, Milwaukee, three times in L.A.!!!, three times across Western Canada!!, Glasgow!!!!!, London!!!, the Nokia show in NY, the Starland show in NJ, Judas Priest!, Rob Zombie!, Gigantour!!, Australia!!!, Japan!!!!!!, really, there's not a bummer in 19 months.

    "Thank you from the very depths of my soul for being the best fans in the world. We got to relive something that I never thought we could and it turned out better than I ever thought it would. We didn't have to force it, it just happened and it was great.

    "My curiosity was piqued by the idea of what Anthrax would sound like now with Joey singing. Over the last few months we've discussed this endlessly to no avail. The problems that were there could not be fixed no matter how hard we tried and in the end Joey made the decision.

    "I know a lot of you out there are disappointed by this and that's the last thing we ever want. None of us want to disappoint. If we were meant to make a reunion record we would've. Some things look easy on paper but the reality is that they are impossible and what works for one band doesn't work for others. Maybe we could've forced something and cashed in on a new record but that's not the way we operate.
    My reality is I feel we have some unfinished business with the 'We've Come for You All' lineup and I will do my best to finish it.

    "I hope you can find it in your hearts to support all of us in whatever happens going forward.

    "Charlie [Benante, drums], Frankie [Bello] and I are excited about creating new music and for now we will focus on that and write another killer Anthrax record."

    The 2005 reunion of the "classic" Anthrax lineup of singer Joey Belladonna, guitarists Scott Ian and Dan Spitz, bassist Frank Bello and drummer Charlie Benante was followed by the release of the band's most comprehensive "best of" collection ever issued, the two-CD retrospective "Anthrology: No Hit Wonders (1985-1991)", which shifted just over 2,700 copies in its first week of release back in September 2005.

    Meanwhile, the group's first video compilation, the DVD "Anthrology: No Hit Wonders (1985-1991) The Videos" (both on Island/UMe), sold less than 950 units in its initial week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Similarly, the band's live CD and DVD packages, "Alive 2 (2005)" (on Sanctuary Records), which document the group's summer 2005 reunion tour, opened with less than 1,100 and 1,700 copies, respectively.
    Don't drink the Jim Jones punch. They're called theToxic Twins for a reason...
