Scott Ian dans un entretien avec le Mag RollingStone a déclaré qu’il pensait qu’ANTHRAX serait en Studio en Mai. En effet il a précisé que déjà 12 titres étaient composés et arrangés. Il pense également que ce sera la première fois que le groupe arrivera en Studio avec plus de titres que nécessaire. Il estime que 15 titres seront déjà prêts pour Mai.
Yeah. Frank [Bello, bass] and Charlie [Benante, drums] came out here to my house and we jumped right in in November. Not to jinx anything, but things have been going pretty fast creatively, which normally isn’t the case. We’ve got a ton of material; I’m talking 12 songs now, musically arranged. I’m on my fifth and sixth lyrically, and Charlie sent over ideas for two more songs. He even wrote in an email, “Now the really good stuff is coming.” And I was like, “Really? The shit we have right now is pretty fucking killer.”
This could probably be the first time in this band’s history that we’ll go into the studio with more original material than we need. Normally we have nine or 10 songs then do a bunch of covers, but I can safely say this time, we’ll be recording about 15 of our own songs, if not more, which we’ve never had before.
The vibe has been great. I think we’re all just happy to be doing it because we came off this great run with Worship Music, two years, 207 shows, and people all over the planet really love that record. It just afforded us the opportunity to do what we love to do, so we can’t wait to get back in and start.
So when are you hitting the studio?
I’d like to think May, so we can get guitar, drums, bass done before we go to Europe. If we could get that done, live with it for a month, then finish the record in July or August, that’d be the perfect-case scenario, but it depends on if we really feel ready or not.”
