Speaking in a recent interview with Nothing Shocking, Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante revealed his thoughts about metal community. He said:

“I think the metal community is probably one of the most loyal communities. They follow the music, just like we do. It’s a way of life. I really think that it’s important for us to recognize that too.

For me, especially, that is why I spend so much time on putting a package together for a new release. I wanna make sure the cover is outstanding, I wanna make sure the inside is [equally impressive] – I wanna make sure everything about that is just amazing… for myself, of course, but our fans.

I just want them to have a really great experience. And I don’t want them to just stream the music, I want them to read the music, I want them to smell the music, I want them to just be a whole part of it.”
