Anthrax have announced their new album, For All Kings, will be released on February 26, 2016 on Megaforce Records in North America and Nuclear Blast in Europe and that it is the most metal album they’ve ever made. Artwork and the track listing can be found below along with a message from the band on the making of the album.
Drummer Charlie Benante talks about the cover. “The cover art for this record is again done by Alex Ross, who is probably one of the greatest artists living. And he did our previous covers.
“My idea for this one was to show this hall and these huge statues of these kings — who, of course, are us — and trying to tie in the last album cover with these creatures who are drawn into this room with our ANTHRAX ‘A.’ This one, you’ll see those creatures in this hall kind of trying to reach up at these kings. We tried to tie in the last two album covers with this album cover. And when you see it, it’s beautiful. It’s grandiose. It just has this beautiful look to it. And, yeah, it’s gonna be a great album cover.”
