The current tour taking Anthrax and Denmark’s Volbeat across North America is, in a sense, a bit of a family affair, given that current Volbeat guitarist Rob Caggiano quit Anthrax back in 2013. Clearly there are no hurt feelings between these two off-kilter metal bands, who don’t seem all that interested in staying in one particular musical area. Openers and new kids on the block Crobot are a little more straight ahead, unabashedly working the hard-rock angle, but they do have some fun song titles celebrating chupacabras, wizards and Satan.
