You can't take 6 years off and get a new singer and expect the fans to still be there. Especially with a band like Anthrax who's popularity has plumited since the mid 90's. I'm sure Slipknot was just trying to help out a band that influenced them a lot.
Well said. At this point for Anthrax to have any credibility at all they need Belladonna or Bush. Bringing in another stiff will not bring out people to their shows.
Personally I'd like to see some better setlists also. The covers were cool 10 years ago but they're tired now. I can name 30 songs I'd rather hear than those covers. Hell they're best cover to me is Got the Time and I'd rather hear that personally.
