About the artist behind Now Its Dark Tab:

Anthrax is an American, New York City-based thrash metal band, who released its first full-length album in 1984. The band was one of the most popular bands of the 1980s thrash metal scene and are notable for combining metal with rap and hardcore music early on. They have sold over 10 million albums worldwide,[1] and are classified as one of the "big four" of thrash metal alongside Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer.[2]

They have made several appearances on television including: Married... with Children, WWE Raw, NewsRadio, Cheers, and Ask Dr. Ruth amongst others. The band has also appeared in movies such as Run Ronnie Run (performing as the fictional band Titannica) and Calendar Girls. Their song "Madhouse" was used in the videogame Grand Theft Auto: Vice City in-game radio station V-Rock and in Guitar Hero II. The song, "Now It's Dark", was also converted into simlish on the metal radio station for The Sims PC game. Their song "Caught in a Mosh" was also featured in Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s. In 2006, guitarist Scott Ian was a cast member of VH1's reality show SuperGroup and is also featured on many other VH1 shows such and I Love the 80s and I Love the 90s.
