Anthrax has been kicking ass for 34 years! I spoke with Scott Ian about past, present, and future backstage at Hammerstein Ballroom…
Check out the cool review of the Anthrax show from 2nd June at Hammerstein Ballroom New York City from Cryticrock.com
The entire Anthrax camp is just devastated by the sudden loss of our tour manager/soundman Aaron Dilks who passed away in his sleep last night. He was a wonderful man, we all cared greatly about him, and he made the band sound like a monster. He will be missed. Our thoughts are with his family.

It’s been a long time coming, but unabashed coffee connoisseur, Anthrax’s Charlie Benante, has entered the world of entrepreneurship, announcing “Benante’s Blend.” The coffee will come in two different varieties: the ‘Be All End All’ blend which is a dark roast with a real kick, and the ‘Forever Metal’ blend, a milder coffee. “Benante’s Blend” will be available beginning today through Benante’s Website
“I grew up in a large Italian family and coffee was a daily staple in our home,” said Benante. “As a kid, I loved coffee so much, my mother said that at one point, she put some coffee in my bottle. For me, the taste of coffee is one of the greatest tastes that there is on earth, so I decided to create what was for me, the perfect cup of coffee.”
This is actually Benante’s second foray into the world of coffee. Years ago, he joined up with Dave Mustaine for a line of coffee and coffee products. “I’ve learned so much since then,” said Benante, “especially about selecting and blending the right beans, and how important roasting is.”
Benante hooked up with a company that specializes in coffee roasting. “I was pretty specific about the tastes I was looking for,” Benante explained. “I told them the type of coffee I wanted, what some of my favorite coffees were, and we built it from there. We combined beans from different regions, Brazil, Costa Rica, Mexico, Sumatra and Africa, and tweaked the amount of time the beans were roasted to get just the right taste. It was a process, I tested a lot of different blends, but it was a lot of fun.
“I love coffee so much,” Benante added, “if I could make it a cologne, I would wear it.”
