Anthrax offer 'full thrash effect' in studio update

Anthrax have released a clip from the studio where they’re working on their 11th album.

The thrash icons are in sessions with producer Jay Ruston on the follow-up to 2011’s Worship Music. It’s expected to be released in the coming months via Megaforce Records –although guitarist Scott Ian recently said they wouldn’t be rushed.

Alongside the short studio clip uploaded to Facebook – which features the band playing through a heavy riff – Anthrax posted the following caption: “Riff action going on for the full thrash effect. Total moshness. #anthrax #hardestever. Play Loud!”

This week, frontman Joey Belladonna recalled his 1992 sacking from the band, saying they wanted a more “90s sound.”
