Noisecreep had the honor of sitting down with two members of the legendary New York thrash metal wonders, Anthrax, just before the kickoff date on Mayhem Festival 2012, where they are headlining the Jägermeister Stage.

Lead singer Joey Belladonna and lead guitarist Rob Caggiano talked about the band's legacy, the recent Lamb of God controversy, and the first concerts they ever saw - shows that had a profound effect on the rest of their musical careers.

Check out Noisecreep's exclusive video interview with Belladonna and Caggiano below and make sure you catch the band on the Mayhem Festival this summer!
