Anthrax's Scott Ian Slams Downloaders

(Rock News Desk) Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian believes that for every fan who's bought new album Worship Music, as many as four have illegally downloaded it. And he says filesharers should be denied access to the internet.

The thrash act's long-awaited tenth album sold 30,000 copies in its first week of release in September. But Ian remembers a time when Anthrax sold five times as many records and blames downloading for the decline.

"The fact that we sold 30,000 the first week and entered at number 12 was awesome, for 2011," He tells the New Times. "If you put that in 2011 we would have sold probably 250,000 the first week and been number 12. In 1993 Sound of White Noise entered the charts at number seven and it sold like 110,000 copies." more on this story
