WATCH THIS: Sweetwater Studios Releases Exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Video with Thrash Metal Titans Anthrax

Metal icons riff through their history during Sweetwater Studios Recording Master Class

January 13, 2020, Fort Wayne, IN – Sweetwater Studios, the recording studio arm of music retailer Sweetwater Sound, has just released exclusive in-the-studio footage of thrash metal architects, Anthrax. The video – shot by famed British music video director Nigel Dick [Ozzy Osborne, Guns n’ Roses, Band Aid] – finds the band energetically ripping through classics like ‘Madhouse’ in Sweetwater Studios’ Studio A, intercut with interview footage where the members discuss their shared history and working methods writing some of thrash metal’s most iconic riffs.  


The band partnered Sweetwater Studios and Shure last September to present a Recording Master Class that invited fans and recording enthusiasts into the studio to learn the art of tracking and mixing alongside the metal icons and Producer/Engineer Mark Hornsby. Shure provided all of the microphones used in the sessions, and the band tracked a selection of older and newer material, while sharing their insights and stories with attendees.
