Anthrax have released the eighth video of their massive Anthrax 40 for 40 video series, which celebrates the band’s 40th anniversary by taking a look at each individual ‘Thrax album over the course of the coming weeks. That will all lead up to a special career-spanning livestream performance on July 18 (the band’s actual 40th anniversary).
The latest clip looks back at 1986/87ish — the magical time when Metallica released Master of Puppets, Megadeth released Peace Sells, and Slayer released Reign in Blood, and Anthrax released Among the Living all within a year. Naturally, this leads to a discussion of the early days of the Big Four, and naturally, that leads to some really fun stories (fun fact: Frank Bello can’t hold his liquor).
You can watch the episode below. In addition to the members of Anthrax, it includes interviews with Slayer’s Kerry King and Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine.
