Editorial Reviews

Worship Music, the long awaited new studio album from Anthrax, one of the four original architects of speed and thrash metal, has been confirmed for a September 13 release date, the day before the band's triumphant return to their native New York to play at Yankee Stadium as part of the Big Four concert extravaganza.
Not only is Worship Music Anthrax's first studio release in eight years, but the album marks the return of vocalist Joey Belladonna, whose last studio work with the band was 1990's Persistence of Time. Belladonna is now firmly back in the Anthrax line up wiht drummer Charlie Benante, guitarists Scott Ian and Robb Caggiano, and bassist Frank Bello.
'Getting Joey back in as our full-time, permanent singer solidified us as a unit like we hadn't been in years,' said Ian. 'All of use were on the same page creatively, working together, writing together, and becoming a band again.'
'I get goosebumps listening to the new music, 'Benante admitted. 'Scott and Rob's guitars are absolutely on fire, Frankie kicks butts on bass, and hearing Joey sing, well, the band sounds like Anthrax-Joey's back and it's great.'
The 11-track Worship Music was produced by Anthrax, Rob Caggiano and Jay Ruston and recorded over a four year period at studios in NY, LA and Chicago. Belladonna's return to the band prompted some of the songs originally recorded to be re-crafted with fresh lyrics or tweaked to better suit his overall vibe and energy. Some of the songs were completely replaced with brand-new songs and, of course, all have Belladonna's inimitable vocal stamp on them.
'I'm very happy with the record. It sounds like Anthrax. There are some interesting twists and turns on it, and plenty of tunes for fans to get their fingers on. I felt very comfortable working with Jay Ruston, and I think everyone brought to the table what they needed to. Now it's time for the fans to listen and get what they've been waiting for. I'll tell you, I'm really excited.'
With worldwide sales in excess of 10million, 2011 sees Anthrax celebrating its 30th year as a band. Over those three decades, Anthrax has received multiple Gold and Platinum albums, multiple Grammy nominations, and a host of other accolades from the media, industry and fans.

OK, history lesson first. Since the band's last studio album (2003's underrated We've Come for You All) Anthrax had dropped longtime vocalist John Bush to reunite with previous singer (and fan favorite) Joey Belladonna for some touring. When it came time to record an album, Belladonna split, to be replaced by Dan Nelson, a relative unknown. They wrote an album - Worship Music - with Nelson on vocals but then Nelson quit/was fired/who knows and the album was shelved until yet another reunion with Belladonna, resulting in a reworked Worship Music, the band's tenth studio album.

Now that that's out of the way, I have to say I am a John Bush fan. In my opinion the albums he sang on were Anthrax's best albums by far. I never got Belladonna's appeal and frankly I came into this album expecting to hate it.

But it!

Worship Music is just an incredible slab of heavy metal, and there's no way to deny that. This band has always written very solid albums, and they've always had a unique energy, no matter who was in the band at the time. This time around, it seems like we're getting the best of everything the band has to offer. There's a nod to their old school thrash metal roots in the blistering "Fight `Em Till You Can't" and "The Devil You Know," and songs like "I'm Alive" and "The Constant" have the heavy, melodic, modern vibe of the later Anthrax albums. Actually, a good number of these songs sound like they were written with John Bush in mind, and while I'd have loved to hear him sing them, I have to admit Belladonna does a fantastic job. He's particularly good on the killer "Judas Priest," which is probably the album's best song.

Anthrax released their tenth full length studio album Worship Music in 2011, which was the first album to feature singer Joey Belladonna in 21 years, and their first studio album at all in 8 years.

The story behind the album is fairly well discussed; the rumors of Corey Taylor joining the band, the mysterious dismissal of new singer Dan Nelson, the Big Four tour with the Sonishpere Festival etc. In the nineties Anthrax were left in the proverbial wilderness when their record company imploded and it seemed they've been back there again ever since their Alive 2 DVD was released in 2005.

You aren't likely to get many impartial opinions on this record. Some people have been clamoring for a new Joey Belladona fronted Anthrax album for over a decade however some people think the band have become irrelevant since parting ways with John Bush, the singer on the four studio albums released since Belladona left, and whichever singer a person prefers is likely to unfairly colour their opinion on the actual record.

On its own merits, Worship Music is a good record full of impressive musicianship and songs that don't feel as though you've already heard them before by a thousand other bands. Importantly however, it isn't exactly a return-to-thrash nostalgia record. The music was written before Joey even returned and only tweaked to suit him later, consequently the album feels like a mixture of both Anthrax styles, with songs that they'd never have written with Joey before as well as songs that they'd don't sound like they'd suit John anymore.

I got into heavy metal back in the mid 80's, and Anthrax was one of my favorite bands. Unfortunately, when Joey Belladonna left the band, a lot of what I liked left too. They toned down their metal sound to more of a hard rock sound. It wasn't bad, but wasn't the Anthrax that I loved. I pretty much wrote these guys off during the John Bush era. But now Joey Belladonna is back, and so is the thrash. This is by far their best album since Persistence of Time (which I consider one of the top 10 metal albums of all time), and it's good to have them back. If you're a fan of classic Anthrax thrash, then I think you'll really love this album.

There has been a fair bit of activity from the "Big 4" of thrash metal in the last couple of months. Some of it has been good, some great and some just plain "Lulu"! I am happy to set the tone of this review by stating that Worship Music falls into the second category. It is great thrash metal, pure and simple!

I have always enjoyed the contrast that I have seen between the Metallica/ Megadeth brand of thrash, and that of Anthrax. While all thrash has more than a little dose of punk thrown into it, Anthrax have always seemed to veer further to the punk side of life than their Californian contemporaries. I am sure that this has a lot to do with their exposure to the thriving New York punk scene in the 80s.

All of that having been said, this album is a pure delight to listen to. A fantastic blend of fast, punkish numbers and slower, more groove-laden metal with some seriously catchy choruses thrown in between ("I'm Alive" springs to mind here) I found myself getting more and more into the album as it went along.

Since comparisons between these bands are inevitable let me lay it out as I see it. I have not yet had sufficient time to listen properly to Megadeth's new offering, Th1rt3en, but from initial impressions it is a great album. I find it completely impossible to listen to Metallica's latest "project" with Lou Reed, and probably will not try again any time soon. With Worship Music I think that for possibly the first time Anthrax is no longer the "little guy" in the "Big 4". It is undoubtedly to me the best that the band have ever released, and it is quickly rising to the top of my thrash metal pile for the time being.

In conclusion, there is no real need to think any further. You NEED this album in your collection. Make it so!

Shame about Dan Nelson
Dan didn't get screwed. He backed out of a tour by leaving the band. He screwed the band, the crew and the fans. Do you really think Anthrax would ruin their reputation with promoters and other bands by canceling an entire tour? Especially when they didn't even have a plan on how to replace him?... Read More
