Anthrax are a US band from New York and were formed in 1981. The main guys were Scott Ian and Danny Lilker. Back in the 80s they were dubbed as one of the big four thrash metal bands, the others being Slayer, Megadeath and Metallica.

The band line-up has been changed a hell of a lot over the years. When drummer Dave Weiss and bassist Kenny Kushner left, several musicians replaced both band members’ roles, with Greg Walls and Paul Kahn being the first ones to do so. There were also many singers involved in Anthrax, with Neil Turbin, Joey Belladonna and John Bush being among the frontmen of the band. Scott Ian has been in the band since its formation. Ian and Charlie Benante, who joined Anthrax in 1983, are the only constant members that have appeared on every album. Bassist Frank Bello has played on every album with exception of the first album. Classic singer Joey Belladonna has now returned to the band and appears on their latest album.

Anthrax released their latest album called Worship Music in September 2011. The album was the first album they had done for 8 years and their first one with singer Joey Belladonna since Persistence Of Time back in the 90s.
