Anthrax is currently working on the follow-up to their 2016 album For All Kings, and drummer Charlie Benante is giving fans a peek into the process! Benante shared a clip of himself recording demo drums for the new album, which has tons of short kick drum bursts.
As far as the new record goes, guitarist Scott Ian called it "riffier" in a recent interview.
"If I had to say what this next record sounds like to me, or a vibe, in a way, it's riffier — it's a riffier record.
"I think we've kind of proved to ourselves over the last two records that we've gotten pretty good at a certain style of Anthrax songwriting, and now we've taken a left turn away from that, because we don't want to do the same thing again," he explained. "So if anything, I think this record is a little bit riffier, maybe a little less linear, and certainly faster.
"We've always been really good at making things more difficult for ourselves. So if anything, yeah… I hate to say, 'Well, it's more of a thrash metal record,' because I'll let people decide what it is when they hear it. But from my point of view, it's definitely faster and riffier."
