Dan Nelson (born June 21, 1976)[1] is a singer/songwriter/guitarist. He is also Lead Vocals/Guitar/Keys for the rock band Hawks Of Metropolis.

He was the lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist for the band BlackGates from 2009 to 2013, as well as being the lead vocalist of American thrash metal band Anthrax from 2007 to 2009.

Nelson has also worked with the Long Island bands Inside Hollow, Discipline and Devilsize. Nelson's vocal style in BlackGates and other rock/metal projects is reminiscent of Chris Cornell (Soundgarden), Mike Patton (Faith No More), John Bush (Armored Saint and formerly of Anthrax) and Phil Anselmo (formerly of Pantera and current frontman of Down). However when singing his solo material, there is a more soulful, bluesy approach to both Dan's singing, and guitar playing.

Nelson also plays the bass and drums. He has done so in the past while singing in previous projects.

He was the first Anthrax vocalist to perform with the band in Korea, Colombia, and Estonia.

Co-author on eight songs from the 2011 Anthrax album Worship Music.[2][3][4]

Guest appearance on track "Black" of German Band President Evil on their latest album "Back From Hell's Holiday"
