Scott Ian And Brian Posehn To Release Comedy Metal Album

Anthrax guitarist and comedian to collaborate on new record.

Ultimate Guitar

Brian Posehn and Anthrax's Scott Ian are no strangers to collaboration, having both worked on the comedy metal madness that is Posehn's 2010 track "More Metal Than You". It would seem that the pair enjoyed the project so much, that they're now working on a full album together. As Metal Injection notes, the record is still early in the development process, although one song will be titled "Satan Is Kind Of A Dick" and the pair are considering a metal reworking of A-Ha's "Take On Me". The album will be release on Megaforce records, although there is no confirmed release date.

Scott Ian has recently revealed that, if he had the choice, he would expand the big four of thrash metal (Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth) to include a fifth band; Exodus:

"The only other band really that it would make sense [to include] as far as American thrash-metal would be Exodus, because they were there right at the beginning as well. Their first album came out right at the same time as the rest of us. So I mean, to me, yes - if you were gonna add a fifth band, certainly I would think Exodus would be able to fill that slot very easily".

The guitarist also noted his personal favorite band out of the Big Four:

"If you went into my iTunes and you looked at the play count to see what songs I listen to the most, I would probably bet Slayer gets played more than Metallica or Megadeth". In case you haven't seen it, we've included the link for "More Metal Than You" for your viewing pleasure:

    Posehn should front a new version of S.O.D. They could rock such tunes as "Grow Some Tits (The Ballad Of Chris Holmes)" and "Speak Wieners Or Die".

    As far as the expansion of the Big 4, Anthrax are the sole East Coast band. While Exodus certainly are the Big 5th, I'd argue the Big 6th should be OverKill. OverKill was banging out the metal a good year or two before Metallica and Anthrax formed, and they're a good representation of East Coast/NYC early thrash.
