In a week from now all you Anthrax fanatics will have the opportunity to buy another live/DVD album from your favorite band. The live-in-concert DVD, will arrive in stores and online on April 27, 2018. But why the Hell will want to buy another kind –of –a best of combo from Anthrax…? But we all know more than just one reason to add another Anthrax album to our collections. C’mon, let’s be honest, especially for all you 100% loyal even the KISS-inspired tribute to 1976’s ‘Rock And Roll Over’ artwork is enough reason to get ‘Kings Among Scotland’. Recorded last February 15 at the band’s sold-out concert at Glasgow’s historic venue the Barrowland Ballroom, the two-hour ‘Kings Among Scotland’ incorporates the band’s entire live show along with interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and other B-roll shot on the band’s tour bus, backstage, in hotels and elsewhere. The DVD will also include a “gear rundown” from each of the band members. 18 tracks and more than 2 hours of top notch groovy crossover thrash metal made in NY is what you’ll get, capturing the band in a really great shape and form. The 35 years on stage ,the 11 studios albums and their last effort, the 2016 ‘For All Kings’, being extremely highly acclaimed from the Press and the audience, is giving them the right to release a live/best of without being accused of milking their fans. For newcomers is a must have, playing the role of the starter pack, but for all the others I can’t understand if they can live overtaking it…But damn I wanted to hear the live version of the new (and for me instant) classics like ‘Blood Eagle Wings’,’Fight ‘Em ‘Til You Can’t’, ‘Breathing Lightning’ and ‘Evil Twin’ next to ‘Caught In A Mosh,’ ‘I Am the Law,’ ‘Madhouse,’ ‘Be All, End All,’ ‘A.I.R.,’ ‘Indians,’ and ‘Eflinikufesin (N.F.L.)’ and the other established value hymns. I just loved it!
