With eleven critically-acclaimed studio albums to their name, Anthrax has sold over ten million copies worldwide. The band is also recorded as one of the pioneers of the thrash metal genre, alongside the rest of the Big Four, Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer. Anthrax rose to prominence in 1987 when they released their third album, Among The Living, in 1987. The album entered the Billboard 200 chart and peaked at number 62. It also later earned a platinum certification after selling more than one million copies in the U.S.
Meanwhile, Black Label Society is a much newer band compared to Anthrax but also holds a significant legacy among metalheads and guitar fanatics. Led by the illustrious frontman and lead guitarist Zakk Wylde, Black Label Society emerged in 1998, playing blues and southern heavy metal music. The band has been touring relentlessly since 2011 and has had a number of headlining shows across North America and abroad. Meanwhile, frontman Zakk Wylde, who had notably played guitar for the metal legend, Ozzy Osbourne for over a decade, is revered as one of the greatest heavy metal guitarists of the millennium.
