‘Catch The Throne’: Anthrax Teases ‘Game Of Thrones’ Mixtape Song (Video)

Anthrax Game Of Thrones Catch The Throne mixtape interview

At the end of last year, we learned that metal titans Anthrax would be contributing a song to Catch the Throne: The Mixtape Vol. II, the official Game Of Thrones album featuring music inspired by the events of Season 4 of the popular HBO series. The New York thrash band had been in the studio working on their follow-up to 2011’s Worship Music, their first album with lead singer Joey Belladonna since 1990’s Persistence Of Time, when they posted studio photos to their social media accounts that were captioned #‎CatchTheThrone‬. The hashtag was an obvious Game Of Thrones reference, as that was the title of the first mixtape compilation featuring songs inspired by Seasons 1-3.

Now, Anthrax and HBO have released a quick teaser video that contains interviews with several members of the band talking about the television series, intercut with footage of them in the studio, so we get to hear a snippet of the song, which is about the Lannister family.

Check out the teaser video here below, which features guitarist Scott Ian — who just appeared as the Steel Pole Walker on last Sunday’s episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead — bassist Frank Bello, and drummer Charlie Benante.

‘The Walking Dead’: Inside Episode 512 “Remember” (Video)

The Walking Dead Season 5.12

SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Episode 512 “Remember.”

AMC’s The Walking Dead Episode 512 “Remember” aired last night and it showed Rick and his group arriving with Aaron to his camp near Washington, D.C. in the “Alexandria Safe Zone.” Rick was skeptical about going there at first, after his harrowing experiences with The Governor and then at Terminus, but the fact is, his group needs a home and his baby Judith needs stability, too. They were all at the end of their rope; even without the Walkers at every turn, supplies are dwindling. But once he arrives at the safe zone, he still has to decide, will they stay? And what do the people in the safe zone need from him? What’s the catch? In this post-apocalyptic zombie-plagued world, if something is too good to be true, it typically is.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which is when Glenn comes back from the first supply run where he butts heads with Alexandria run leader Aiden. We know that Glenn can take care of himself, but we see now how far he’s come from his original job as runner way back in Season 1. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes — one is a 3 1/2-minute “Making of” featurette that centers on the slippery skinned Walker that got out of Aiden’s chains, while the other is a 4 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at the episode that takes a look at how Rick and his group fit into Alexandria and how they perceive the existing residents.

You can watch all the videos here below.

Anthrax - Among The Living

As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deals, Among The Living is on sale right now in MP3 format for only $5.00. (The CD is currently $6.98 and is an AutoRip, which means with the CD purchase you’ll also get a FREE MP3 download of the entire album.)

Featuring the classic Anthrax line-up of singer Joey Belladonna, rhythm guitarist Scott Ian, bassist Frank Bello, drummer Charlie Benante, and lead guitarist Dan Spitz, this third album from the native New Yorkers has one awesome track after the other. It’s basically a perfect album, but if I had to pick some standouts, I’d say “Indians,” “Caught In A Mosh,” “Efilnikufesin (N.F.L.),” and of course “I Am The Law.” Among The Living is a must-have at the normal price, but for $5, it’s a steal. Highly recommend.

Browse hundred of albums on sale this month for only $5 each!

Interview: Anthrax Guitarist Scott Ian

Scott Ian (Photo: Steve Appleford)

“From across the room Lemmy spots me. ‘How you feeling? … we were having a drink then all of a sudden you stopped speaking English and ran screaming from the bar!’”

It was the opening show of Scott Ian’s Speaking Words tour of the UK. The Anthrax guitarist, comic book writer, and now raconteur is in Oxford, England, as he kicks off his latest venture.

The great bearded one is sharing stories from his life, 30-plus years of which have been spent in the heavy metal world. Throw in Meat Loaf as a father-in-law and recording a reality TV show with a heavily armed (and dangerous) Ted Nugent, and there is much to talk about.

The diminutive guitarist (I’m no giant, but there’s clean air between my shoulders and his smooth bald head) has the audience laughing throughout his tales of the perils of playing ‘drunk itunes’, the aforementioned brush with Lemmy – and death – and trying to help Pantera guitarist Dimebag (apparently just Darrell to his friends) in stopping Sebastian Bach from bothering goats and committing suicide. Sort of.

It was the day after Jeff Hanneman’s memorial service. The Slayer guitarist died only days before, an autopsy showing cirrhosis of the liver. Hanneman was only 49 when he died – the same age as Ian is now – and inevitably being part of thrash metal’s ‘Big Four’, their paths had crossed over the years. Ian’s remembers Hanneman’s intelligence and “incisve wit,” a “super nice guy” who, had it been the occasion of one of their other metal brothers passing would be “the first to raise a glass” in their memory.

Metal Alliance Tour - Anthrax, Exodus

Anthrax has announced that Jon Donais of Shadows Fall will be filling in as lead guitarist for the departing Rob Caggiano on the band’s upcoming tour dates, including the Metal Alliance Tour in North America this Spring. Anthrax is headlining the tour, with supporting acts Exodus, Municipal Waste, High On Fire, and Holy Grail, and will perform their classic, much-loved 1987 album Among the Living in its entirety.

In early 2010, former lead singer Joey Belladonna returned to the New York-based trash metal band and in 2011 the reunited line-up released the album Worship Music, their first together since 1990’s Persistence Of Time. Worship Music received critical acclaim and one of its songs, “I’m Alive,” is up for a Grammy in the Best Rock/Metal Performance category. This nomination, which was announced in December 2012, marks the fourth time the band has received a Grammy nod.

WTF? The Big 4 To Play A Small 1: Only One U.S. Show Announced

You SuckMetal fans and followers will remember that yesterday we posted news that The Big 4 (meaning Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica, and Slayer) would be making a major announcement today via their Facebook page regarding a U.S. tour dates. Everybody assumed, justifiably so, that it would be the announcement of a major Big 4 U.S. tour. Boy, were we way off, and the resulting rampage of fury and anger from metalheads across the country should make the so-called Big 4 hang their heads in shame!

It turns out that the “major” announcement was that the 4 bands would be playing a show. That’s “a” show. As in one. Singular. Uno.

The Big 4 will be playing their one show in Indio, California on April 23, 2011, at the Empire Polo Club and…

Wait, what? A club? The Empire Polo Club doesn’t seem to have seating charts in many places in the short Google search I did, but one report I found mentioned a capacity of no more than 1,000*. I cannot vouch for the reliability and accuracy of that information, but if there is any validity to it, why choose such a lame venue for one show?

Movie Review: Lemmy

Lemmy
Directed by Greg Olliver, Wes Orshoski
Starring Lemmy, Dave Grohl, James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich, Robert Trujillo, Henry Rollins, Scott Ian, Billy Bob Thornton, Ozzy Osbourne
Damage Case Films
Released: December 7, 2010 (Limited UK)

He is ex of psychedelic space-rockers Hawkwind, master of many a collaboration, a skilled lyricist, and the bass-playing gravel-voiced leader of the neverending metal machine that is Motörhead. He is Lemmy, the ‘baddest motherfucker in the world’.

Lemmy describes the music that influences you the most as the stuff you listened to when you were 20 that knocked you out. For many, like me, that was Motörhead. Although I was nearer the age of 10 and my dad let me watch an episode of the chaotic comedy The Young Ones in which each week they would have a musical ‘guest’ where a band would play a song in the young ones’ house while all hell was breaking loose in cutaways. While Rick, Vyvyan, Mike, and Neil made their way to the train station to make an appearance on University Challenge, a man in shades with long hair played the greatest song my pre-teen ears had ever heard: “Ace Of Spades.”

The man who can’t sing, but no one can sing like him, became a fascination. Onstage Lemmy hardly moves but is a frighteningly captivating and charismatic performer. Lemmy’s book, White Line Fever is a great read of some of the most unbelievable drug stories and one incredible rock and roll life. He never tells his drug stories in any kind of salacious way. It is honest; it is what it is.
