A bunch of cool bands from Life Of Agony to Tombs have branched out into the interesting realm of coffee sales on the side. This is not a joke. Whatever pays the bills or is a passion, right? I mean Purple Pam, Bad Brains and a bunch of other bands made hot sauce as well! And we know a lot of groups have made beer, from Daylight Dies to Sepultura Weizen to Kid Rock’s shitty “Badass American Lager”!
Anthrax‘s Charlie Benante loves coffee. This might explain how at his age he is still able to fucking out slay pretty much every other drummer in thrash with the debatable exception of Lombardo and Hoglan. Is caffeine the secret to the power of Suzerain’s intro? Who knows.
Anyway, having teamed up to collaborate with Chicago’s Dark Matter Coffee Co., his brand “Benante’s Blend” has undergone enhancements that include higher quality choice of coffee beans, a change in the way the beans are roasted that give the coffee a larger and more flavorful taste, and other tweaks, Benante and Dark Matter are proud to announce the relaunch of “Benante’s Blend.”
