Anthrax released their eleventh studio album, For All Kings on February 26 of this year.
Yesterday, March 7, 2016, the album broke into the top ten of the Billboard Top 200 Albums. It debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top Rock Album chart, #2 on the Independent chart album, #4 on the Physical album charts, and #5 on the Vinyl album chart.
To go along with that, it also hit number on on the both the US and Canadian Hard Rock Charts, and has stayed at number one on the iTunes Heavy Metal sales and Amazon's Best Sellers in Metal chart.
Clearly, they have a success on their hands! Its a hit everywhere, and has surpassed the success of their previous album, Worship Music. That album peaked at number #12, which is still fantastic but this one did better.
In regards to this success, Charlie Benante, the band's drummer spoke up to say this, “We share this Top 10 victory with all of our fans. Heavy metal is alive and well.”
He is absolutely right!
Congratulations to Anthrax on their success!
