Anthrax: Rap Metal Dealers

Keith Cameron, New Musical Express, 22 May 1993

Once upon a time, there was a super-competent trad-thrash band with a poodle-headed singer. They boldly entered the rock/rap crossover zone, collaborating with the cred-worthy Public Enemy. The tousle-haired screamer? He had to go... Now ANTHRAX are re-born with a roaring-bull vocalist, a state-of-the-art metal LP and a spooky tie-up with Twin Peaks man Angelo Badalamenti. KEITH CAMERON samples the damn fine new brew.
