    New York thrash metal messiahs Anthrax sat down with ARTISTdirect.com for an exclusive video chat about their new album, the long awaited Worship Music.

    Guitarist Scott Ian was quick to point out that the band wasn't sitting around doing nothing for eight years or anything of the sort; in fact, the members of Anthrax were touring their assess off, welcoming vocalist Joey Belladonna back into the fold and more! It was a busy couple of years in between releases but you know what? Worship Music is worth the wait and then some.

    Ian and drummer Charlie Benante spoke about how performing live allows you to fine-tune your songs, to craft them, the morph them, to shape them and to change them. Songs evolve as you continue to play them live. It's an excellent point that Ian makes and shares with fans.

    Other topics of convo? Playing Yankee Stadium, which Anthrax two weeks ago as part of the East Coast edition of The Big Four with Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer, as well as loving Yankee shortstop and baseball legend Derek Jeter.

    ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino sums up Worship Music, "This album is two fists full of metal…not only is Worship Music Anthrax's best album to date, it's a landmark for heavy metal as a genre. Listen and bow down!"

    Plus, Scott Ian fills us in on "Metal Tune"!
