Amoeba Music has issued a new What’s In My Bag? segment, featuring ANTHRAX. In the clip, the band go record shopping in San Francisco. Watch below:
The surprise isn’t that Anthrax’s ‘I’m Alive’ received a Grammy nomination for Best Rock/Metal Performance; the surprise is that it comes more than a year after the track’s September 13th, 2011 release on the band’s Worship Music, which was named was of the best metal albums of 2011 by numerous media outlets, and provided the band with the rock’n'roll comeback story of the year.
This is the fourth Grammy nomination for Anthrax – Charlie Benante – drums, Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano – guitars, Frank Bello – bass, Joey Belladonna – vocals.
“I was watching THE DAVE MATTHEWS BAND perform when I received a text saying ‘Congrats on the Grammy nomination!’,” said Benante. “Huh? I had lost all hope of ever being nominated for another Grammy, but I guess I was wrong. We put so much hard work into Worship Music, and I am so honored to be nominated with a group of bands that have also sustained the test of time like the legendary Maiden and Megadeth. Heavy metal is a force, it has fans that range from six to 66, and I’m so proud to be a part of this force… it’s in all of us.”
IRON MAIDEN, HALESTORM, MEGADETH, LAMB OF GOD and MARILYN MANSON have also been recognized for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, which will be held in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday, February 10th at the Staples Center.
