Interview: Anthrax from the Big Four at Yankee Stadium

Last week's Big Four show was a historic occasion, to say the least. The world's four biggest thrash metal bands took the stage at Yankee Stadium for what has to be the biggest metal show ever to hit the East Coast.

In the midst of all the chaos, I caught up with the members of Anthrax fresh from their opening performance of the day to talk about the added pressure of playing Yankee Stadium, how it felt playing news songs during the show and what songs they would choose for the Big For jam.

Anthra'x new album, Worship Music, is available in stores now!

And of course a reminder that Anthrax's Scott Ian -- along with members of Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth -- is featured on the cover of the November issue of Guitar World, which you can pick up here.
