ANTHRAX – Exclusive Interview on 70,000 Tons Of Metal Cruise

As a lifelong metal fan, I don’t know if there is a single event that I can remember that will ever stand up to the 4 days I spent on the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise. I shot a ton of interviews with artists and had some truly unforgettable experiences (such as watching Arch Enemy on the pool deck while sitting in a hot tub drinking a chocolate milkshake) – I can’t recommend it highly enough if you have the means.

In this interview, I talk to Anthrax guitarist Jon Donais and bassist Frank Bello about what they’re playing these days, their current favorite bands, and what the year is looking like for Anthrax!

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
