After five years, Anthrax finally released a new album this year, titled For All Kings. The legendary metallers shared a few new songs before but their first official video from the record just came out. The band is showcasing the track "Blood Eagle Wings" on a chilling new video which features horror and surprise cameos. The clip features a skull-faced king presiding over a draconian society built on torture, torment and murder. A protagonist, played by James Duval (known for his roles in Donnie Darko and Gregg Araki's Teen Apocalypse Trilogy), initially resists the carnage but eventually succumbs to his own graphic fate, inspired by the song's title. Don't miss it.

He was attacked in Dublin by a gang of teenagers on Sunday night as he explained via Instagram. The vocalist said this happened while taking late night camera shots of the Samuel Beckett Bridge.

Enjoy both video and new song here as of now.
Even as they focus on a new album, on November 20th, three decades after their 1985 debut, Universal will release a special 30th anniversary edition of Anthrax's classic Spreading The Disease, the band's second studio album and the one that served as the thrash band's breakthrough, and still considered one of the best thrash metal records ever recorded. Now seems like a good time to give it another spin.

The book is scheduled for a fall 2014 release.
