Anthrax Talk Scott Ian Replacement and New Album

(Gibson) Anthrax guitarist Rob Caggiano said it's going to be weird when the band tours this summer without band founder, guitarist and figurehead Scott Ian. Scott's taking some time off because he and his wife are expecting a child. Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser will be filling in.

"Yeah, we've known Andreas for a long time," Caggiano told GeeksofDoom.com. "He's a great guitar player. It's definitely going to be a little strange having an Anthrax show without Scott Ian. But I think Andreas is definitely going to pull it off and it's going to be fun. I mean, it is what it is; Scott's having a baby, we've got to understand and respect that."

Caggiano also talked about the group's forthcoming album, Worship Music. "Worship Music is going to be a crushing Anthrax record. It's got all the elements," he said. "There's moments where it has the spirit of [1987's] Among the Living, at the same time it's also a progression from [2003's] We've Come For You All, certain aspects." more on this story
