Scott Ian: Anthrax Game Of Thrones track is “tip of the iceberg”


Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has said that the band’s Game Of Thrones track “Soror Irrumator” is indicative of the material for their new album, but is “just the tip of the iceberg.”

Speaking with The Sick Room Podcast Ian says: “We felt strong enough about it to put it out there as the first thing anyone was going to hear new from us – but it barely scratches the surface.”

Worship Music was a great record,” he adds, “and I think we have an even better record coming. We’re working on lead guitar now.”

“Soror Irrumator” appeared on the recent Game Of Thrones Mixtape Vol.II album and you can listen to the track via the stream below:

Ian has previously described Anthrax’s new material as “very angry.”

Anthrax to record new drum tracks on Game Of Thrones set

Scott Ian Throne Room PicThrash fans partial to a bit of HBO smash hit series Game Of Thrones rejoice! Sort of…

Scott Ian, guitarist with thrash metal legends Anthrax, has revealed that they are planning on recording drums for the band’s new album on the Belfast throne room set of the hit TV show.

Speaking to the Metal Hammer Magazine Show on Team Rock Radio, Ian explained: “I asked Dan Weiss ‘Hey man, what would be the possibility of us recording the drums for the next album in the throne room?’ Like we bring a mobile studio and set up the drums, mic everything and record in here. He says ‘Oh my God that would be the sickest thing ever. We know the guys that can make that possible.’

“All of you out there who watch Game Of Thrones, much like me, probably think it is a very metal TV show. And just know, the reason for that is that one of the creators of it is a huge metalhead.”

Ian has previously indicated that Anthrax will release a new album in 2015.

You can hear the entire interview with the Anthrax axeman on this week’s Metal Hammer Magazine Show at 9pm, on TeamRock Radio starting at 9pm BST.
