"I am really excited about my Home Game on UB," said Scott Ian, currently in the studio mixing the new Anthrax album "Worship Music," due out this summer. "With all of our crazy schedules, we're never in the same city so it's not often that I get to play Hold'em with all my friends. UltimateBet has provided the venue for us to play together and I can't wait to welcome some UB players to the table and get to know them a little more personally."

2009 marks the 25-year anniversary of the release of Anthrax's debut album, 1984's "Fistful of Metal, and over the course of that 25-years, the band has remained one of heavy metal's all-time great acts. Along with Slayer, Metallica and Megadeth, Anthrax is credited with co-founding the thrash genre. This summer, Megaforce Records will release "Worship Music," Anthrax's first new studio album in six years. The new album will mark the studio debut of new singer Dan Nelson, who joins long-time members Ian (rhythm guitar), Frank Bello (bass), Charlie Benante (drums), and Rob Caggiano (lead guitar).
