Anthrax Working On Dolby Atmos Mix Of “Among The Living”

Anthrax have revealed that they are planning to release a Dolby Atmos mix of their 1987 album “Among The Living.” The effort is being worked on by producer Jay Ruston.

Drummer Charlie Benante said the following during an appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk”:

“We have the master tapes, which we didn’t even know if they survived that fire [at Universal Studios Hollywood] or not, but apparently they did. And Jay has been remixing it and I heard some of it and I was just blown away. Like, ‘Wow!’ Jay played some [of it for me], and I was just, like, ‘Dude, this sounds amazing’ — as if we did it yesterday.”

He went on to say that Universal are the ones responsible for the project:

“[They] approached us to do it because they’ve been doing these. And, of course, they picked that record first. It’s gonna be awesome, though.”

Guitarist Scott Ian continued:

“They had a list, apparently, of the albums that hadn’t been done yet in Dolby Atmos and we were high up on that list; they really were interested in doing that with us.”

Benante also commented on the sound:

“The tones are so awesome, and it’s so heavy. [Jay] sent me some guitar tracks when he first got the tapes.”

Ian added:

“He said, ‘I’m putting these masters up.’ And he sent me guitar tracks from some of the songs. I was, like, ‘Holy shit.’ He sent me just my ‘Caught In A Mosh’, just the guitar, and I was, like, ‘Wow!’ [Laughs]”
