February/March 2017 will see legendary New York thrashers ANTHRAX back on European soil for the band’s first full European headline tour in more than a decade. Dubbed the »Among The Kings« tour, dates will kick off on 9th February in Birmingham, UK and wrap on up in Paris, France on 16th March; the full itinerary is below. On all of these dates and to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release, ANTHRAX will perform live, start-to-finish, their classic and Silver-certified 1987 album »Among The Living« alongside fan favourites from throughout the band’s rich 35-year career. ANTHRAX‘s »Among the Kings« European dates are in support of the band’s critically-acclaimed album »For All Kings« (26 February 16/Nuclear Blast). British
metallers THE RAVEN AGE will support on all dates.
A new video, in which rhythm guitarist Scott Ian invites the fans to this upcoming tour, has been launched today. Check it out here:

Said the band’s Scott Ian about the tour: “Finally! We’ve been looking forward to headlining in Europe for so long. We have a killer set planned, new stuff, old faves, deep tracks and »Among« front to back. You’d better start getting in shape now for the epic wardance. See you soon my friends – cheers!”
In support of this upcoming trek, ANTHRAX will release a limited tour edition of their latest studio album »For All Kings« on February 17th. As well as the regular album it will include ‘Vice Of the People’ (previously only available in Japan) as well as a bonus disc of demo versions.

Drummer Charlie Benante commented on the bonus material:
“We’ve included some of the demos from »For All Kings« in this package. We wanted to show the evolution of the songs. The idea of a song can start from a guitar riff or a thought in your head. It then takes shape and goes from my music to Scott’s lyrics to Frank and Joey’s ideas and melodies to Jon’s lead guitar. This is our way of making ANTHRAX music – ENJOY!”

Over the band’s 35-year career, ANTHRAX have sold in excess of 10-million units, received multiple Gold and Platinum certifications, six Grammy nominations and a host of other accolades from the media, industry and fans. In 1991, their music helped break down race and genre barriers when they collaborated with PUBLIC ENEMY on ‘Bring The Noise’. And, of course, along with METALLICA, SLAYER and MEGADETH, ANTHRAX helped pioneer the thrash/metal genre as a member of The Big Four.

When my old buddy Kenn Jensen asked me if I wanted to contribute to the new site he had created, then called powermetal.dk, I didn't hesitate. My love for metal music was and is great. I wrote my first review during the summer of 2004 (Moonspell's 'Antidote' album). In 2015, I took over the editor-in-chief role, and held that position until January 2017, where I decided to focus only on live reviews.
