Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante told The Aquarian Weekly that he had long been a fan of the Kansas cut, and frequently drummed to it as a teen. "I had to go back into the hard drive of my brain and remember how to play the song. We wanted to do it justice," he said.

Available exclusively in North America and released in conjunction with Anthrax's spring co-headline tour with Killswitch Engage - "KillThrax" - the "For All Kings 7-Inch Box Set" retails for $79.99, and is an absolutely stunning collector's item for any Anthrax fan.

    It sounds good, although it's a bit too true to the original?

    Thought so too. But maybe they just had a good time playing it like Kansas and not worry about any input of their own.
