ANTHRAX To Release Live DVD ‘Kings Among Scotland’ In April
December 11th, 2017

New York-based thrash metal band Anthrax issue live DVD Kings Among Scotland on April 27th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast Records in Europe, and Megaforce Records in North America.

Kings Among Scotland consists of Anthrax’s live performance at the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow on February 15th, 2017. The outing incorporates the group’s entire live show along with interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and other B-roll shot on Anthrax’s tour bus, backstage, in hotels and elsewhere. The DVD will also include a “gear rundown” from each of the band members.

“Playing for our friends at the Barrowlands has always been very special,” said bassist Frank Bello. “We all know we’re going to get together and have an insanely great time, and we think that incredible interaction and energy really comes through on this video.”

“It was a pretty intense show,” added guitarist Scott Ian. “Especially when the crowd was so insane, the floor actually started moving up and down.”

With packaging artwork created by Steve Thompson, the DVD’s concert is presented in two parts. For part one, Anthrax played the “favourites” that had been voted on, pre-show, by the band’s fans, while for part two, the group performed their March 1987 album Among The Living in its entirety.

“It was a challenge for all of us to play Among The Living live,” admits drummer Charlie Benante. “We’ve played a number of that album’s songs in our shows over the years, but not all of them, and playing a song in a recording studio is not the same as playing it live on stage. So we put in a lot of time to get all of the tracks down perfectly. And I’ll tell you, after we finished that set, as arduous as it was, we all felt a sense of exhilaration, like we could go out and do it again.”

Kings Among Scotland was produced, directed, filmed and edited for Film24Productions by Paul M. Green, with the sound mixed by Anthrax studio producer Jay Ruston.
