Chile On Hell

On September 15, 2014, members of the media gathered at the Downtown Independent Theater to watch the Los Angeles premier of ANTHRAXís new DVD, Chile in Hell. The big screen airing of the video took place a day before its official release (9/16/2014). ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian and renowned producer/mixer Jay Ruston were on hand after the screening to answer questions about the film.

Chile On Hell was shot in Santiago, Chile, a locale chosen by the band for its enthusiastic fans. The DVD rivals any live concert video on the market with its multi-camera footage, shot from numerous angles. The visuals are incredible, as is the audio quality, thanks to Ruston, whose numerous album credits include STONE SOUR, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, STEEL PANTHER, to name a few, and the The Big 4 (METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH, ANTHRAX) live DVD. Ruston also produced and mixed ANTHRAXís Worship Music (2011) and Anthems (2013).

The video, which runs approximately one hour and 50 minutes, shows some of the craziest fans in the world going off. How they got road flares into the venue is stupefying, and watching the flares alight and waved around in the circle pit like Fourth of July sparklers is funny and horrifying at the same time. The band played on, nonetheless, and according to Ian, fire extinguishers were snuck into the venue as well.

ďWe decide to shoot it in Chile because of the crowd,Ē Ian said. ďYou just saw it. Youíd all agree that itís pretty fucking amazing. The last three times weíve played Santiago, each time has been better. So I was actually worried about this show, because the two previous shows were so good. Theyíre just fucking nuts. Itís just fuckiní crazy there. When we play L.A., New York, or London, certainly, youíre playing cities where you have the opportunity to see as many shows as you want to see. Itís not like bands arenít coming to L.A. Bands are here. Every fuckiní day you can see a show. Itís not like that in Santiago. Thatís why itís so much better (laughs), because they sweat for it a little more. A ticket to see MAIDEN or AC/DC down thereócorrect me if Iím wrong, but thatís sometimes a monthís salary to people down there. Thatís how important it is. So thatís why when they go to that show they lose their fucking minds, because itís like, ĎHmm, Iím paying the fucking rent or Iím going to see AC/DC.íĒ
