ANTHRAX's Ian: New CD Will Be Full Of "Giant Fat Guitar Riffs"

January 27, 2002

ANTHRAX have tracked 15 songs—including three covers—during the recording sessions for their as-yet-untitled forthcoming CD, according to a tour diary submitted by guitarist Scott Ian at Describing the record as “brutal”, Ian goes on to say that the upcoming CD, which apparently no longer carries a working title of Taking The Music Back, will contain “giant fat guitar riffs of the like that haven't been heard in many a year.” Scheduled to be completed by the “end of March, beginning of April”, ANTHRAX's ninth studio album may contain another guest appearance from PANTERA axeman Dimebag Darrell, who had contributed his services to the group's last two studio CDs. Says Ian: "We played Dallas [several nights ago]. Great show. Best Dallas show since we played with PANTERA in '97. Dime hung out after. It was good to see him. He's a great friend. Will he play on three records in a row? I think so." Tentatively set for a June 24th European release through Nuclear Blast Records, the upcoming CD is being produced by Scrap 60 Productions (i.e. ANTHRAX guitarist Rob Caggiano, Eddie Wohl, and Steve Regina) and will feature the following cuts, among others:

01. Black Dahlia
02. Refuse To Be Denied
03. Superhero
04. Safe Home
05. What Doesn't Die
06. Strap On My Old School
07. Taking The Music Back
08. Nobody Knows Anything
09. Expiration
10. Think About An End

B-sides/Bonus Tracks:
01. Exit (U2 cover)
02. Next To You (THE POLICE cover)
03. We're A Happy Family (THE RAMONES cover)
