The countdown to July 18 began on May 3 with the ongoing, 11-week, online video docu-series presented on Anthrax’s social media accounts. Posted every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, in the album catalog’s chronological order, each episode focuses on a particular album, with past and present band members, fellow musicians, colleagues, and industry veterans sharing behind-the-scenes stories of their interactions. Those contributing their personal memories include Kerry King, Robert Trujillo, Dave Grohl, Dave Mustaine, Gene Simmons, Henry Rollins, John Carpenter, Norman Reedus, Rob Zombie, Slash, Tom Morello, Mike Patton, Nergal, Darryl McDaniels (Run DMC), Michael Paulson, and Roger Miret.
“I was a 17-year-old metal-head kid from Queens when I started this band,” said Scott Ian. “I am a 57-year-old metal-head kid from Queens about to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this band. That means for 40 years, I’ve gotten to do exactly what I’ve wanted to do – and getting to do what I love and being a part of something so much bigger than myself has made the time, the unbelievable weight of 40 seems so light. It’s been an amazing story so far, and I see 40 as a milestone that absolutely should be recognized and celebrated. Congratulations to us! I also see 40 as a stepping stone to the next chapter of Anthrax – we still have a lot to say and some killer riffs to unleash. I’m not going to say, “Here’s to 40 more” because nobody wants to see that (I’d be 97). How about, “Here’s to at least ten more, and we’ll go from there! Thank you for enabling me, my friends.”
