Charlie Benante, the legendary drummer from Anthrax, has released Silver Linings, a solo project with a lot of help from his friends.
When COVID hit hard and stay-at-home orders were issued, Anthrax’s Charlie Benante found he had all kinds of time to rediscover and fall in love again with music he hadn’t listened to in a long time. That gave him a great idea, and he enlisted musician buddies to get together and jam these great songs. Charlie’s new album, Silver Linings, is those jams.

The world of music owes a debt of gratitude to Marsha Zazula, who along with her husband Jon gave birth to some of the most musically significant artists. Marsha was one of a kind and taught the world to be fiercely independent. Megaforce and our artists will never forget her. In our hearts, she will always be a guiding force.
