Anthrax have already given us a taste of For All Kings, and “Evil Twin” delivered. Last night, on BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show, host Daniel Carter interviewed Scott Ian and premiered another song from the album, “Breathing Lightning.” On first listen, it’s a little more melodic than the first song, with a pretty anthemic chorus to back up riffage in the verse that wouldn’t seem out of place on Among the Living. Meanwhile, new guitarist Jon Donais turns in a solo that’s both shreddy and tuneful. While some fans expecting something as heavy as “Evil Twin” might be a little disappointed, this is a solid return that will probably become a staple of their live show. Head to 5:30 in the widget below to hear the song.
For All Kings will be released on Megaforce Records on February 26th and can be preordered here. You’ll get “Breathing Lightning,” which is also available as a digital single.
