July 18th 2021 marked the 40th anniversary of thrash metal pioneers Anthrax. The celebration began in May of last year and culminated on that July 16th/17th with a global livestream event, shot at the Los Angeles soundstage/studio The Den. For two-plus hours, Anthrax performed an extensive set of hits and deep cuts pulled from their vast catalogue. Today, Anthrax announces that the entire performance, plus never-before-seen rehearsal footage, and Scott Ian’s New York City “walking tour” pointing out the spots that played a role in Anthrax’s formation and history, will be released in North America on July 15th on Blu-Ray/CD/Digital (Megaforce). ‘XL‘ will also have a UK/European digital release on July 15th (Nuclear Blast), followed by a Blu-Ray release (inc. 2CD + 1Blu-Ray) on July 22nd. UK/European pre-orders for ‘XL‘ can be placed HERE.Continue reading ANTHRAX announce ‘XL’ 40th anniversary livestream concert release + reveal ‘Aftershock’ live video

Premiere thrash outfit Sylosis have released a video for their brand new single ‘Immovable Stone’. Another prime example of the quartet’s uniquely exhilarating take on modern metal, ‘Immovable Stone’ is the band’s first release since the furious ‘Worship Decay’ last December.
Sylosis founder Josh Middleton comments “Immovable Stone is the second song released from a recording session we did last year which includes Worship Decay (released December 2020) and one other song which will remain unreleased due to it accidentally being wiped from existence on a broken hard drive. Another slightly different sounding song to anything on Cycle of Suffering. A nice way to tie off 2021 and keep things moving forwards ahead of a new Sylosis record in 2022.”Continue reading SYLOSIS Display insurmountable force with new single ‘Immovable Stone’
