Anthrax – [Live]

Tuesday, 25 September 2012

It seems like Anthrax has been out in on the road in support of their latest (and quite possibly their finest) release, Worship Music, for well over a year now but, judging from their sold out show at the Ace of Spades in Sacramento earlier this month, the band shows no signs of becoming road weary. Kicking off the second leg of their North American Tour with fellow thrash icons Death Angel and Testament supporting them once again, Anthrax tore up the stage with almost ninety minutes of material both old and new.

Opening with one of the heavier songs from the latest release, “Earth on Hell,” the band were all over the stage from the word go and seemed totally charged and as enthusiastic as I've ever seen them. Classics such as “Caught in a Mosh,” “Indians,” “Antisocial,” and “Among the Living” all sounded totally timeless, while the newer material including “Fight 'Em Til You Can't,” “The Devil You Know” and “In the End” all fit in quite nicely.

It's been nice to see Anthrax gel as a band and back at it again, and hopefully they will continue.
