Anthrax Guitarist Scott Ian Nervous About 'Blood Eagle Wings'

(TeamRock Radio) Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian admits he was nervous about writing lyrics for their track Blood Eagle Wings. But he believes the result was worth the effort - and he's described it as the "centrepiece" of latest album For All Kings.

The band released an eight-minute torture-themed video for the song last week. Ian tells Louder Noise: "The working title was Epic because it just had a feeling about it. It took a long time - it's one of the last songs that got finished. It carried over for months and months. It deserved that."

He adds: "Lyrically it was the hardest for me to write. I was so nervous to do justice to the arrangement. I didn't know what I was going to say. Somehow I cracked that nut." Read more and watch the video here.
