In a 2021 interview with the “2020’d” podcast, Donais was requested how we landed the gig with ANTHRAX after beforehand spending virtually 20 years with SHADOWS FALL.

After which ANTHRAX misplaced their guitarist, and so they requested me to fill in — simply to fill in. And I used to be, like, ‘Completely,’ ‘trigger I sort of noticed the writing on the wall with SHADOWS FALL.”

In keeping with Donais, his predecessor in ANTHRAX, Rob Caggiano, hooked him up along with his present gig. “‘Trigger he knew he was gonna depart, and he needed to make it possible for they had been all set,” Jon stated. “He needed to make it possible for they had been lined and did not wanna depart ’em hanging. And he knew we knew one another, and he requested me if I would have an interest, and I used to be, like, ‘Yeah. 100%.’ After which I did not hear something for slightly bit, and I did not know what was happening.’ Then, perhaps two or three weeks later, [ANTHRAX guitarist] Scott Ian known as, and he goes, ‘I heard you understand what is going on on.’ I’m going, ‘Yeah.’ He goes, ‘Are you able to do it?’ I’m going, ‘Fucking completely.'”
