Yep. And Anthrax is far more groove-oriented than any other thrash band. Generic isn't the right word. If you think they're lousy, whatever, but generic they aren't.

If anything they broke the boundaries of thrash. To call them generic would be absurd.

What boundaries other than the rap-metal thing did they break?

They were the first and still one of the only thrash bands to have a vocalist who really sings. What other thrash bands at the time were doing songs like The Enemy?

I see your point. But it's not like they were the first heavy band to feature clean vocals though, so I can't really call that breaking boundaries. They were only as different from the rest of the Big Four as the rest of the Big Four were from each other. Thrash was in such a fledgling stage that there weren't really any boundaries yet.

Good song. Really radio sounding but still really enjoyable. Joey sounds alot different and its throwing me off a little.

I honestly love it, just liked I pretty much loved "Fight 'em...". Consider me thoroughly excited for this album.
