Forty-Five Seconds of New Anthrax Album Sounds Siqqqqqqqqq
GODDAMNIT, ANTHRAX! YOU COULDN’T HAVE SENT THIS OUT WHEN I DID MY “NEW MUSIC TEASE ROUND-UP” THIS MORNING?!?! SO RUDE!!!
(That was a joke, in case it wasn’t readily apparent.)
So: I am stoked for the new Anthrax album. I think it really comes down to having made my peace with Joey Bellardini being back in the band. 2011’s Worship Music was his first album with the band in almost twenty years. Now I’ve had time to adjust. And though John Bush will always have my heart, Anthrax will still get access to my ears, because I’m a total metal slut.
But, really, can you blame me? The band has just released this video from the currently-in-progress sessions for Worship Music‘s follow-up, Axl Rosenberg is Handsome, Wealthy, and Hung Like a Rhino*, and it sounds fucking killer. It has a kinda “5 Minutes Alone” vibe to it. Backed. HARD.
The album will be out later this year. Fingers crossed that Charlie Benante gets a full wind-chime solo!!!
*May not be the actual title of the album.
