New Anthrax Album Enters Mixing Stages

Anthrax's new studio album, "Worship Music" has now entered the mixing stages according to the band. The record is being mixed by Ugly Kid Joe member Dave Fortman, who has previously worked with Slipknot and Mudvayne amongst others. Fortman stated: "In 1986, I saw two shows at Jed's in New Orleans that changed my life, one of those was Anthrax. Not long after, I packed up and headed out to make a career in music. Twenty-three years later, it's an absolute pleasure and an honor to work with these guys. They are and always have been one of the great forces in metal."

"I've always looked at the songs we write like our kids," admitted Scott Ian. "And you wouldn't want to let just anyone take care of your kids, right? Dave is helping us raise really fucking heavy kids."

"Dave Fortman not only understands the music, he lives it," added Benante. "I was so happy when he sent over the first mix, it was all there, it was as if he put himself behind the kit, the mic, the bass. He listens to the song and sees what the song needs, and then he starts building it. We're all confident that Dave will dial it all in and make a monster for us. Like us, Dave worships music, and we like that."

George would be a much better lead vocalist for Anthrax, than president. What is John Bush doing these days? Is he back with Armored Saint?

Anthrax's current lineup is Dan Nelson on vocals, Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano on guitars, Frank Bello on bass and Charlie Benante on drums. John Bush is back with Armored Saint and they have a new album coming out this year. He also did voice-overs for some Burger King commercials. I'd be interested in hearing Bush do a solo album but I don't see it happening.
