Anthrax and Testament had a night off from Slayer's final Repentless World Tour, and had time to fit in a packed co-headlining show at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas this month. Testament is a big favorite here in Vegas and seem to get better with each appearance, and Anthrax was a welcomed sight for this special show. Fans were lined up outside Brooklyn Bowl well before 5pm in anticipation of getting that front row spot to be as close as possible to their heros.

TESTAMENT played a shorter set this time around, opening the set with "Brotherhood of the Snake", and singer Chuck Billy told the packed venue that this was their best work in years. One thing you quickly notice about Chuck Billy is he constantly plays air guitar with actual pics the whole time he is onstage, and he even tosses picks to the outstretched arms of the fans. This time around he even had a coaster size pick that he tossed to the fans. Testament ended their set with "Disciples of Wrath" and "Over the Wal", with another amazing show by the boys from San Francisco.

Now it was time for ANTHRAX, a heavy metal band hailing from New York, with Scott Ian on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Charlie Benante on drums., Frank Bello on bass, Joey Belladonna on lead vocals and Jonathan Donais on lead guitar. Anthrax is a band that comes right at you and gets in your face, and Joey Belladonna is a madman running back and forth across the stage all the while teasing the fans in the front by reaching out to slap their hands, only to pull back at the last second! The band sounded great and were in top form, and played a shorter set as well, opening with "Among the Living" followed by "Caught in a Mosh". I am surprised these guys don’t play here more often as this is another band the rabid fans love. Anthrax performed a Joe Jackson cover called "Got the Time" and later on another cover by the Trust called "Antisocial", and wrapped up their set with their classic song "Indians", and another evening of thrash metal came to a close
