Anthrax Gets Classic Rock with Anthems

You can't go wrong with a healthy dose of Anthrax in the morning.

At least, that's what I thought as I listened to their new EP Anthems, released on Tuesday, March 19. Add that to the fact that these thrash metal legends are coming through town this Sunday on the Metal Alliance tour --alongside Exodus, High on Fire, Municipal Waste and Shadows Fall--and you've got yourself one hell of a biological weapon.
