ANTHRAX AMONG THE LIVING reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Anthrax always seem to be overlooked a little when it comes to appreciation of the Big Four of thrash; Megadeth get plenty of plaudits, Slayer are absolutely revered, and even though most of Metallica's releases for the past couple of decades have attracted a huge amount of bile and vitriol people still put Master of Puppets on a pedestal. I'm inclined to agree with Sheavy here and say that Among the Living deserves consideration next to Rust In Peace, Reign In Blood and Master of Puppets when it comes to any discussion of classic masterpieces of thrash.

Sure, the lyrical subject matter might tend towards pop culture and comic books - but hey, Megadeth have written multiple songs about The Punisher and on this disc you have One World, one of the more eloquent metal protest songs from the thrash era. And the sheer sense of fun that pervades the album is more than enough to set it apart from the rest of the crowd - it thrashes just as hard as any of the competition, sure, but it's also a feel-good party on a disc, and that's something which is often sneered at. But not by me - I think this might just be Anthrax's best album to date.
The Angry Scotsman
Oh poor little Anthrax, the youngest (and silly) brother of the Big 4. A band who never took themselves too seriously, (comic books and thrash!) they made some serious music. However, they were always a bit "off" despite some good music. This is the album where they finally put it all together.

I can't put my finger on it, but Anthrax always had an interesting sound. It took me some time to get used to, but the music on this album is great. Thrashy, (very thrashy at times) but also lots of slower parts. Great riffs, awesome guitar work, good variation and flow to a lot of the songs. Blazing guitar solos and awesome bass. I love when you can hear the bass in metal, and Bello is a damn good one at that! Charlie Benante is the push behind it with his blast beats and blistering double bass. Indeed, it is Scott Ian's rhythm guitar and Benante's drumming that are the core of this album and really drive it. Though each musician is amazingly talented.

The vocals took some getting used to for me. Singing, (opposed to screaming) it can be a tad rough at times, but is not too big an issue. At times however, they can be quite good. If one does not like them, they are easy to ignore at least.

Well composed album, there is not a bad song and really now slow parts either. Album never drags or feels boring. Standout songs: Among the Living, Caught in a Mosh, I Am the Law.

One final point, usually sound quality does not mean much to me. However, on this album it is a bit poor. Maybe that is part of the "anthrax sound" I could never identify but the guitars can sound a bit strange and distant at times, but really the drums suffer. They don't sound too powerful, and the bass drums are often mild thuds. Hell, sometimes I can barely hear a distinct sound. Shame because his drumming is awesome and I wish it was more powerful.

Overall, great album and Anthrax's high point.

Four Stars

Caught in a mosh...

Genre: thrash metal

"Among the Living" is a thrash metal classic by Anthrax, one of the thrash metal giants.

From beginning to end, the album is full of high energy thrash metal tunes which emphasize speed and aggression, and fast killing monster riffage. There are some non-thrashy passages, too, such as the epic intro of"Among the Living", the clean guitar at the beginning of "A.D.I./THe Horror of it all" as well as the intro of "Indians" which reminds me a bit of a blend of Thin Lizzy's "Massacre" and "A Passage to Bangkok" by Rush. I should mention that "Indians" is probably one of my favorite Anthrax tracks (an-trax?), because it contains everything they are good at.

Anthrax were one of the few first generation thrash metal bands whose vocalist sang rather than screaming and shouting, and his high melodic vocals suit the music very well. While he generally sings in a higher register, he does show in several places that he is able to sing in a lower register, too, and I think he is probably a more versatile singer than John Bush (not that I have any problems with John Bush - it was when Bush was in the band, I first got into Anthrax).

This is a thrash metal classic and certainly belongs in any thrash metal collection. Power metal fans and some fans of traditional heavy metal might like it too.
