House Of Blues is streaming pro-shot drum-cam footage of Charlie Benante performing the song "A.I.R." with Anthrax this past Wednesday, July 29 at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California. Anthrax's show was the final metal show at the Sunset Strip House Of Blues by the way.
Says Frank Bello: "Every show we've done at the Sunset House of Blues has been a party. Everyone who we're friends with who's not on tour shows up, either to jam or drink or just hang out. And I'll really miss that. Sunset Boulevard has lost its last great place to play."
Charlie Benante: "The memories that have been created will always live on for anyone who went to the HOB. I feel honored and privileged to have this last chance to blow the roof off of the HOB. The Strip will soon end up looking like a corporate strip mall, no memories there."
Check out now the "A.I.R." live drum-cam playthrough below.

A savagely ruthless song from Surgikill is now online - experience a pack of raving lunatics foaming at the mouth and drooling pure blood & guts death metal below. The band also comments:
"'Relentless Revenge' is the name of the song, and it's our bloody-heartfelt homage to Ruggero Deodato's immortal classic of pure cinematic brutality and violence, 'La casa sperduta nel parco,' aka 'House on the Edge of the Park!' Enjoy the madness, and know that this is ONLY the beginning..."
A highlight in the Pagan's Mind career was playing the ProgPower USA festival in 2003. Hard on the heels of the sophomore release "Celestial Entrance," the praise received in Atlanta was unlike anything the band had ever experienced before.
Pagan's Mind played the festival again in 2007 (also appearing as the house band for the "All Star Jam"), and in 2009 returned for the festival's 10 Year Anniversary under the moniker "Returning Heroes."
On September 11th, 2014, another historical performance took place at Center Stage, featuring "Celestial Entrance" in its entirety plus an additional set including the instrumental piece "Full Circle." It is this piece which comprises the theme of the show you are about to witness.
Now the band will release this concert entitled "Full Circle" on October 16, 2015 as a 2CD/DVD digipak version, Blu-ray/2CD version, 2LP Gatefold version and download through SPV/Steamhammer. The track listing is: More...
