Anthrax revisit making of 1993 album Sound Of White Noise

Anthrax revisit the making of their 1993 album, “Sound Of White Noise”, in the latest installment of the band’s 40th anniversary video series.

The project was the New York band’s first with singer John Bush – formerly of Armored Saint – following the dismissal of Joey Belladonna, as they ushered in a change in musical direction that served as the equivalent to hitting the reset button on their career.

“It truly felt like we got to make our first album over again,” says Scott Ian. “It was like starting over.”

The group’s sixth record, “Sound Of White Noise” delivered Anthrax the highest US chart placement in their history when it reached No. 7 on the Billboard 200.

Episode 18 in the Anthrax 40 series features insight into the band from a lengthy list of fellow rockers, including Rob Zombie, Slash, Henry Rollins, Corey Taylor, John 5 and Kerry King, among others.

Anthrax will celebrate their 40th anniversary with a very special livestream performance on Friday, July 16 that will see the band deliver a deep cuts set that will pull from their entire career-spanning catalog.

The group’s most recent studio release is 2016’s “For All Kings”, which reached the US Top 10.
