Over the past few years, alot of my favorite classic metal bands have been releasing new albums. Metallica, Iron Maiden, Slayer, even Black Sabbath have been making new noise for us fans to enjoy. But alot of those albums havent been real good. The new Metallica album, Death Magnetic, is worse than St. Anger (now thats REALLY bad!). Megadeth's Th1rt3n was awsome, Iron Maiden's The Final Frontier was ok, and Black Sabbath's new album wasnt all that great. But Anthrax really surpassed my exspecations. Worship Music has to be one of the best albums of the 00's, with songs like Earth on Hell and Judas Preist. I plan on making a youtube video reviewing this album. Thats how freaking awsome it is. This is a must-buy for any Anthrax or Thrash Metal fan!
Before talking about the quality of this album, let's discuss just how small the odds were that "Worship Music" would actually be good. Firstly, Anthrax had gone through 3 singers over the last few years and settled on their last choice, Joey Belladonna, who they had not worked with since 1988. Secondly, the last several Anthrax albums since that time have been more or less middling affairs in bland radio-rock that lost much of the classic 'Thrax sound and energy. 2003's "We've Come For You All" was a decent effort, but that was 8 years ago and all of their contemporaries in the Big 4 had each released a few albums in that time; some better than others (Endgame>>>>>St. Anger). Anthrax however defies all expectations and released one of my favorite albums of the year. The riffs are memorable, the drumming by Charlie Benanate is superb, and Joey Belladonna's voice sounds as fresh as ever. Very few weak tracks at all, and some of the best tunes Anthrax has written in two decades including the stand-out track "In The End". The interlude/intro tracks are unnecessary, but don't really detract from the album. Overall, an outstanding return to form from a band that had everything going against them. I'm metal thrashing...happy!
