Anthrax: "The Devil You Know"
tour announcement (with Testament and Death Angel), Anthrax recently dropped the second single from their upcoming album, Worship Music. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I've listened to the full album - will be reviewing it for Metal Injection this weekend - and this is no reinvention of the wheel. It's more of a retreat back to 1990, when the last album with Joey Belladonna came out. After Belladonna left and John Bush came in I still liked Anthrax, but they were no longer really a thrash band at that point. Worship Music is actually more akin to 1987's thrash fundamentals clinic Among the Living than 1990's slightly more experimental Persistence of Time.
