Mini-turntables that work with three-inch plates are increasingly common in recent years — they are funny, small, but at the same time attract attention. Some musicians release such mini-players for Record Store Day, adding singles to them on tiny records, and metal artists Anthrax decided to keep up with the trends: their version of the mini-turntable will be released for Record Store Day 2021.
It is based on a Crosley device in a silver case with a dust cover decorated with the Anthrax logo. You can also buy not only a turntable, but also a set that includes four discs with the tracks “Madhouse”, “I Am the Law”, “Got the Time” and “Discharge” in a unique design: drummer Charlie Benante, who is engaged in Anthrax covers, in this release was inspired by the seven-inch KISS and Iron Maiden, which he collected as a child, and tried to recreate their style.
And in one of the turntables there will be a “golden ticket” — its owner will be able to communicate with Anthrax musicians Joey Belladonna and Frank Bello on Zoom. According to the musicians, such a lottery is “a cool thing in the style of Willy Wonka”, and they are always happy to communicate directly with the fans.
The three-inch sets will go on sale on July 9, and the turntables where you can listen to them will go on sale on July 17. Both the records and the turntables will be released in a limited edition of 1,000 copies each.
