Metal band Anthrax pays homage to the rich musical past of the '70s and '80s with the release of the band’s brand new music EP Anthems.
The new release features six covers of some of those most “anthemic" and prominent classic favorites re-interpreted with the band’s own distinctive Metal edge. The '70s to '80s spanning selection, which also features some of Classic Rock’s most iconic music acts, smartly offers enough overall sonic sustaining range by appropriately beginning with Rush’s “Anthem,” leading to AC/DC’s driving track “T.N.T.,” and Boston’s “Smokin.’” Journey’s “Keep On Runnin’” and Cheap Trick’s “Big Eyes” mark the midway point to Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak,” a real major standout of the release, which works as the perfect inclusion to close the release ending with the band’s own original and mixed version of “Crawl” from the 2011 hit release Worship Music.
Anthrax’s Anthems offers a cohesive collection without diminishing the sonic integrity of selected classic faves. The band is currently on tour in support of the new release which will be available March 19, 2013.
