Fan-filmed video footage of ANTHRAX‘s May 29 performance at this year’s Rockavaria festival at Olympiastadion in Munich, Germany can be seen below.

ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante sat out the Rockavaria concert so that he could undergo physical therapy in his continuing battle with carpal tunnel syndrome. He was once again temporarily replaced by Jon Dette, who has previously played with SLAYER, TESTAMENT and ICED EARTH.

ANTHRAX‘s latest album, “For All Kings”, sold 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 9 on The Billboard 200 chart. According to Billboard, ANTHRAX was last in the top 10 back in 1993 with “Sound Of White Noise”, which debuted and peaked at No. 7. “For All Kings” also gave ANTHRAX its largest sales week for an album since “Sound Of White Noise”‘s second week on sale (40,000; it debuted with 62,000).

“For All Kings” is ANTHRAX‘s first studio album since 2011’s “Worship Music” (No. 12 peak with 28,000 sold in its first week) and follows the 2013 covers set “Anthems” (No. 52; 8,000 sold in its debut frame).

“For All Kings” also topped the Hard Rock Albums chart in both the U.S. and Canada, and landed at No. 5 and No. 7, respectively, on the U.S. and Canada’s Top Current Albums charts. Additionally, “For All Kings” debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, No. 2 on the Independent Albums chart, No. 4 Physical Albums, and No. 5 Vinyl Albums chart.
