Despite naming their band after a lethal bacterial disease – remember the controversy surrounding them during 2001’s anthrax scare? – ANTHRAX is one of those bands that put the ‘legend’ in ‘legendary’. Though the line-up has changed multiple times, ex-vocalist Joey Belladonna returned in 2010 to commit on recording a new album with the band, “Worship Music” which will be released this September.
ANTHRAX came to our region earlier this year when they performed in the Philippines at the end of April and now they’re slated to perform in Jakarta, Indonesia at the end of the year. Metalheads, be prepared to mosh! Date: 10 December 2011 (Saturday) Venue: Carnaval Beach Ancol, Jakarta, Indonesia Tickets: August 17 Merdeka Special Price – Festival A Rp360.000, Festival B Rp200.000 (including tax) Promoter: Blade Indonesia
UPDATE (11/8) It’s confirmed – American heavy metal supergroup HELLYEAH will be performing alongside ANTHRAX in Jakarta this December! HELLYEAH consists of members of Mudvayne, Nothingface, Damageplan and Pantera. To see them both on one stage, the correct reaction would be “Hell yeah”, indeed!

Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing has stunned fans by quitting the band after 42 years – just weeks before they head out on a farewell tour.
The British rockers, who formed in 1969 and have sold 40 million records worldwide, announced in December (10) they plan to pack up their instruments for good after saying goodbye to their fans with a global series of dates.
But just weeks before the heavy metal legends are due to kick off their final tour with a concert in Tilburg, Holland in June (11), the band has announced Downing has quit.
In a statement on the official Judas Priest website the band announced “with regret” that Downing has retired and will not be joining them on their forthcoming tour. Downing will be replaced by a British guitarist called Richie Faulkner.
Cavalera Conspiracy release their second album, ‘Blunt Force Trauma’, on Monday 29 March. It’s five years since Max and Igor officially kissed and made-up and two years since their debut ‘Inflikted’ hit record stores, so we think the timing is just right for a second slab of South American metal!
