iconic thrash metal band Anthrax was formed in 1981 by guitarist Scott Ian and bassist Dan Lilker. After being signed to Megaforce
Records, the band released their debut album in 1984, "Fistful of Metal," which included a cover of Alice Cooper's "I'm Eighteen."
However, shortly after the album was released, bassist Dan Lilker left the band, and he was replaced by Frank Bello, who had
previously served as the band's roadie. The band quickly returned to the studio to begin recording their next album, "Spreading
the Disease," which was released in 1985. The album produced a music video for the song "Madhouse," but it was soon banned
by MTV at the time. By 1987, Anthrax had released their critically acclaimed album, "Among the Living," which was eventually
certified gold by the RIAA. The success of "Among the Living" helped pave the road to their future success, and their next
album "Sound of White Noise" hit the number 7 position on the Billboard 200 chart.
Anthrax would continue to record
and release albums throughout the years to come, including 1988's "State of Euphoria." The album reached the number 20 position
on the Billboard 200 chart, and was also certified gold. "State of Euphoria" spawned the popular songs "Who Cares Wins" and
"Antisocial." Most recently, Anthrax released an EP titled "Anthems," which consists of covers of various 1970s songs. Anthrax
has reportedly returned to the studio to begin working on another album, and it is slated to be released during 2014. The
band will also be releasing "Chile on Hell," which is a live concert DVD that was filmed at the Teatro Caupolican in Santiago,

1980s, along with Slayer, Megadeth, and Metallica. With their debut release "Fistful of Metal," they had captured a fan base
that would set the stage for their future success in the thrash metal genre. By the time their 1987 album "Among the Living"
was released, they were a sensation. The album was certified gold, and is considered by most to be their breakthrough album.
During their Metal Alliance 2013 tour, Anthrax even played the album in its entirety onstage. Since their debut in the 1980s,
Anthrax has gone on to sell over 15 million records worldwide, forever changing metal as we know it.
What event severely disrupted Anthrax's first European tour?

that occurred on April 26, 1986.
