VH1 Classic has affirmed its commitment to metal with ‘That Metal Show’ going strong for nine seasons and the newly launched ‘Metal Evolution’ documentary which is now airing each Saturday night, taking an anthropological look at the genesis and development of the genre. Now, the network has announced that it will dip into the vault and air ‘Behind the Music Remastered: Anthrax‘ on Dec. 3 at 9 PM ET.

“It’s sandwiched between ‘The Decline of Western Civilization Part 2′ and ‘Metal Evolution,’” the band said about this programming highlight, recognizing the forward-thinking, metal-dedicated nature of the network. They group finished by declaring, “What a great channel.” Loudwire couldn’t agree more.

Now take a moment to make yourself a note to watch VH1 Classic next Saturday night. We’ll be parked on our couch absorbing all things metal the entire night. Grab some munchies, snacks and frosty beverages, and sink into the cushions for a long night of metal awesomeness next week.

Anthrax’s latest, ‘Worship Music,’ featuring its most famous singer Joey Belladonna back on vocals, is out now. The band will return to the road in January, to the delight of fans.
