Thoughts on the New Anthrax Song

Go here to listen for yourself.

I was not originally planning on checking out the new Anthrax album too much. I have not liked anything the band has done for about fifteen years and I was not expecting to like this either. Anthrax has never been one of my favorite bands, and in fact they did not make it into my Top 100 at all, despite my secondary title being the name of an Anthrax song. However, this song is awesome. Maybe not as great as their mid 1980's material, but it's pretty damn good. It's upbeat and heavy, but still catchy. Anthrax is not trying to be a modern rock band here. This is the thrashiest I have heard them in years. I may have to check this out after all.

  1. I couldn't care less about them. I've said this before, but I think Anthrax's manager came up with the idea of the "big four". Anyone else would have seen a "big three".
