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!
