Lead guitarist Jonathan Donais (Shadows Fall) joined the Anthrax touring lineup in 2013, replacing Rob Caggiano. The band’s latest album, For All Kings, in stores Feb. 26, marks his recording debut with Anthrax.

It was a near perfect match, and on this frigid January night, fans of both bands packed the sold-out Fillmore to take in some of the very best in American metal today. (more…)
