The Metal Box is a weekly web series posted each Friday where we discuss all things hard rock and heavy metal: news, videos, interviews, live concerts and more.

This week, we talk about Anthrax and their recently released cover of Kansas "Carry on Wayward son". You can watch the latest edition of Metal Box above.

Anthrax formed out of NYC in 1981 and is considered to be one of the leaders of the 1980’s thrash metal scene and they are one of the “Big Four” along with Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer. The band’s classic lineup consisted of singer Joey Belladonna, lead guitarist Dan Spitz, rhythm guitarist Scott Ian, bassist Frank Bello, and drummer Charlie Benante. Anthrax have sold over 10 million records worldwide. I’ve had the chance to see Anthrax many times in concert over the years including the awesome Big Four Concert at Yankee Stadium some years ago. Anthrax always deliver in concert.
