Fired Anthrax Singer Speaks Out

(Rock News Desk) Former Anthrax singer Dan Nelson has slammed the band which sacked him for their "cash grab" attitude, and has called on them to release Worship Music, the album they recorded with him in 2009.

The thrash giants sacked Nelson ahead of what was to be their return-to-form tour and release, with those who'd heard the studio work reviewing it positively. After a short stint with previous singer John Bush they recruited classic-era frontman Joey Belladonna for their Big 4 shows with Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth.

Last night Nelson slated the band for not releasing the shelved album, before closing his Facebook and Twitter accounts. "I just listened to Worship Music with my vocals. While I understand the Big 4 cash grab, I hope the fans get to hear this. They more than deserve it," He said. "I won't share it with anyone out of respect for the band. I still respect them and what they accomplished, so no leak from me. It's sad that I still respect them, but that's how I was raised." more on this story
