Metallica Saves Anthrax's Career

(Classic Rock) Anthrax bassist Frank Bello has credited Metallica for saving his band's career by giving them the "kick up the ass" they needed.

The Big 4 shows in 2010 and 2011 also starring Slayer and Megadeth forced Anthrax to refocus on delivering acclaimed album Worship Music, which had been blighted by a series of disasters over a number of years.

"I take my hat off to Metallica. Not only are they our friends, but they really gave us a kick in the ass, which is what we needed to be a band again." Bello tells Pure Grain Audio"Metallica's the biggest band in the world. To be on stage with them, let alone the Big 4, was huge for us. It put us back in the limelight, in front of this whole new fanbase."
