“Music Of Mass Destruction” by Anthrax

Artist: Anthrax
Title: “Music Of Mass Destruction”
Label: EMI Music
Release Date: 4/20/2004
Genre: Heavy Metal
Rating: 7.5/10

Continuing the trend of metal bands that are giving fans the most value for their money is Anthrax and their release of “Music Of Mass Destruction”. This Live DVD and CD piece is a good way to enjoy the music of Anthrax in your own “Safe Home” as there is no way to be “Caught In A Mosh” if you do that (of course that depends on who you invite over to watch and how much room you have where you entertain). The recording was filmed during the tour which supported the release of “We’ve Come For You All” and it is chock full of Anthrax standards and some of the newest material from this killer CD. A full 18 songs running about and hour and a half. You are bound to find some of your favorites on this one. I really liked the inclusion of “Got The Time” and “Antisocial” as for cover tunes, Anthrax certainly managed to leave their mark on them for the future. I also was a big fan of “Only” and wish more music from “Sound Of White Noise” was featured since that particular CD was a killer also.

Power metal was slowly becoming my music of choice since the States was being consumed with the Grunge movement. Now, I liked most of the bands that came out from this movement, but I preferred the majesty and drive that European Power Metal had to offer.
