While we await the follow-up to their massive 2011 comeback album Worship Music, thrash metal legends have served up an EP full of cover songs from some unexpected sources. Ever since they covered Alice Cooper on Fistful of Metal, Anthrax has always had a knack for delivering memorable - and diverse - cover songs, and Anthems is no exception. Here's what we get:

1. Anthem (Rush) - They definitely make a bold choice here. No matter how heavy the guys rock this, it's all going to come down to the vocals. Joey Belladonna has an impressive range, and he uses every bit of it here, but there are times when you're going to cringe a little. Hey, there's only one Geddy Lee!
2. TNT (AC/DC) - Simple, rocking and fun...that applies to AC/DC and to Anthrax's treatment of this classic. They stay close to the original, and that works just fine.
3. Smokin' (Boston) - The idea of Anthrax covering Boston, especially an upbeat song like "Smokin," is a bit surreal, but they really pull it off. The guitar work is very tight and the vocals shine.
4. Keep on Runnin' (Journey) - Easily the best performance on Anthems, this killer cover of the Journey classic shows just how well Belladonna would do in an AOR setting.
5. Big Eyes (Cheap Trick) - This is something of an oddball song, and the full metal treatment they give it makes it sound very little like a Cheap Trick song at all.
6. Jailbreak (Thin Lizzy) - A close second to the Journey song as the best thing on Anthems, "Jailbreak" was a fantastic choice for Anthrax.

I found out about this like the day before it was released and only found little snippets about it on the net. I was really hoping the Jailbreak cover was of AC/DC's Jailbreak, but no, Thin Lizzy. As a drummer and a HUGE fan of Charlie Benante, i'd always been interested to hear how he'd fair covering Neil Peart. On "Anthem" I got my answer.....I think he did about as good as anyone who isn't Neil Peart covering Neil Peart: ya just can't match the master craftsman. The funny thing to me was Joey Belladonna sounds more Like Geddy Lee than Geddy Lee does anymore! For the most part the covers are done straight on, only a little variance on T.N.T.. It's certainly worth a listen. My only problem is the song selection, "Big Eyes" over "Gonna Raise Hell"? And i'd much rather hear them cover the song "Escape" than "Keep on Running", if they're going to cover Journey, but that's just me.

Not bad but not spectacular either. I respect the fact they didn't cover songs that were close to the style which they play.

For any classic Anthrax fan as well as a broad music fan, this is gold. It's reminiscent of old school Anthrax covers like "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath," "Friggin' in the Riggin," "Parasite," and so on and so forth. Even with John Bush, Anthrax had a nice range of coverage of other band's tunes (during John's era, Celtic Frost, D.R.I., Cheap Trick, and so forth)... this is very well executed, and Joey does a great job via the different ranges of these tunes. I come into this CD having all the originals in my collection that they covered... it was great fun for me. If you're not familiar with the originals, maybe it'll make you delve into some older albums (what a great collection of covers should make you do). Rock 'n thrash on!

Anthrax is known for their hard thrashing jams, so their ode to these classic "anthems" were a surprise. They played them flawlessly, paying much respect to each of the artists who made them famous by keeping to the sounds as they were originally made. My only disapointment was that there weren't more songs as the CD goes quickly.
