ANTHRAX recently spent time in the studio recording several cover versions of some of their favorite rock classics, to be included with the upcoming "Anthem" EP, due on March 18.

The track listing for the effort is as follows:

01. Anthem (RUSH cover)
02. Jailbreak (THIN LIZZY cover)
03. TNT (AC/DC cover)
04. Big Eyes (CHEAP TRICK cover)
05. Smokin' (BOSTON cover)
06. Keep On Runnin' (JOURNEY cover)


Glad to see the covers aren't just being slapped on a reissue. I haven't heard the originals of the last three songs. Jailbreak is kind of an obvious song but I'm sure it'll be cool.

Anthrax covering Anthem should be awesome.

I'm sure this will be awesome. Though a better journey song could've been chosen. There's a clip on YouTube of Joey doing separate ways for journeys sound check and he sung it very well.

Looks like it won't be released on its own in Europe, so fuck 'em.

It sounds like shit. Too bad, since Anthrax's covers are usually better than most of their original material.

It sounds like what Anthrax doing Rush should sound like.




But your statement implies you don't like Anthrax, so I wouldn't be surprised you don't like it.

That says otherwise.



But it also doesn't have Anthem in the tracklist, even though it mentions it earlier. So we'll see.

WTF did Joey get 20 years younger out of nowhere?! I'm not even kidding, it's like whatever vocal huskiness he gained in the years between PoT and Worship Music just disappeared. Dunno if that's a good thing or not, but that's seriously crazy if dude just magically gained a lower register as he grew older without losing any range.
