ANTHRAX to release covers EP

Charlie Benante: To commemorate the first year of Worship Music being out, were putting together a little companion EP with some fun shit on it. It started out as what I call The 70s EP. Its made up of some cover songs from our favorite bands consisting of RUSH, THIN LIZZY, BOSTON, JOURNEY. Were still working on it now, but I think its gonna be really cool.

Songs reportedly due to appear on the EP include 'T.N.T.' (AC/DC), 'Keep On Runnin' (Journey), 'Anthem' (Rush) and 'Smokin'' (Boston).

The Rush cover should sound pretty good, really don't care about the rest of them though.

I find that's the wrong attitude to have to covers. The most worthwhile covers are the ones which turn bad songs into good versions. Case in point, almost every cover of a Beatles song ever.

So, you don't like the Beatles?

I don't hate them, in fact I have several songs of them on my Ipod, but there the most overrated band to ever walk the planet.

I'm sick of all the over the top attention whenever something is released or whenever McCartney performs.

I'm looking forward to hearing all of them, because Anthrax sound good. How the original band sounds doesn't really matter.

Hopefully they will include their cover of Neon Knights, which they did live a few days ago

I keep finding myself agreeing with more that you say. I hate the Beatles as well.

I'm not too crazy about the choice of songs here. I'd rather hear them do more punk covers.
