Anthrax Promise 'No More Line-Up Changes'
Anthrax have been no stranger to fluctuating line-ups in recent years. However, as Classic Rock reports, Guitarist Scott Ian is confident that the current group, which features re-instated front man Joey Belladonna, will be the "last and only version" of Anthrax: "I've gone on record saying this will be the only version of Anthrax until there is no Anthrax. That's how I feel, absolutely, in my heart. "I don't see why we would do anything different. This band sounds so great - we made a great record. I'm super-excited about the future of this band creatively". The past ten years have seen some turbulent times for Anthrax. While the band's classic Among The living line-up reunited in 2005, front man Joey Belladonna left soon afterwards. He was replaced by young front man Dan Nelson, who was dramatically fired from the band to be temporarily replaced by former singer John Bush before Belladonna again returned to the fold. Now, Ian notes that their classic frontman is there to stay, and cites the "manic energy" that he brings as being the reason for the band's success. "There's a certain maniacal energy that Joey has.That's his thing. If I compare him to our contemporaries in the Big 4, between James Hetfield, Dave Mustaine and Tom Araya you've got three frontmen that are all attached to the microphone. "But Joey's all over the place on stage. He's a maniac. I always felt that was one of the things that gave us the kick in the ass we needed to be able to break through and make it". Worship Music, the first album to feature Belladonna on vocals since 1991, was released last year.
