Dan Spitz is a co-founding member of the legendary heavy metal band Anthrax and Overkill. He is one of the first ten artists chosen to have his music playing on a second planet with NASA. His music awakens the MARS Lunar Rover Curiosity.
Some of his accomplishments as a lead guitar player and songwriter are quite astonishing. He helped to create an entire genre of music called thrash metal at a time when there truly was only one genre simply called, heavy metal. He was also the first heavy metal artist to fuse hip-hop with heavy metal, first heavy metal band to record a rap song, first artist to co-headline a global arena tour of hip-hop and heavy metal (public enemy & anthrax) and the first heavy metal band to produce a band sanctioned skateboard deck.
Dan Spitz personally hand built his own Marshall tube Guitar Amplifiers for the Anthrax reunion tour from bags of parts.
All of the following music was co-written & co-produced by Dan Spitz:
RIAA Platinum / Multiple Platinum / Gold Awards:
All CDs have earned RIAA Certification of Gold, Platinum, Double Platinum, Triple Platinum, Quad., status. Platinum and Gold awards outside the USA hold certification by each particular country.
Planet MARS music certification:
Being there isn’t any way to tell who is listening (or how many times Dan’s music on planet MARS has been downloaded) we are just listing its apparent location in the universe. This is NOT in any way a comedic anecdote.
The below titles are a partial list of material in the global market that was written . produced by Dan Spitz.
