Should be going into the city in a couple of days with the intention of getting an Anthrax album, as inconveniently I only have a compilation disc and the rest is on cassette. Having a war in my head over which album to pick

1. The Sound Of White Noise
2. Persistance Of Time    ...or,
3. Among The Living
       HELP ME CHOOSE ONE! Confused

Among the Living.

Among the Living every time, though Persistence of Time is also a fine album.
Sound of White Noise is fairly tame, and lacks the wondrous wailing vocals of Joey Belladonna.
He is sorely missed throughout.

Actually i think their best album is Spreading the Disease... it's a Madhouse! Medusa is awesome. It's all awesome! !  Rawks

But Among the Living is a close second, and awesome in it's own right... caught in a mosh is surely the greatest thrash song ever written... well, maybe second to Exodus' toxic waltz!

Yeah, Madhouse is definitely Anthrax's best tune.  Just perfectly paced.  Anyone who can listen to the main riff without banging their head is no metalhead.

Quoted for truthClap. To be perfectly honest, I have always found Among the Living a bit disappointing, while in the Eighties Spreading the Disease got me hooked from day one. Their Armed and Dangerous EP was also very good.

Get Among the Living. But if you don't have Spreading the Disease definitely get that instead.

'Persistence Of Time' is their most "progressive" album.

'Attack Of The killer B's' has some crazy tunes as well.

Sound Of White Noise.  Probably my favorite Anthrax album.  And in second place (not listed above) We've Come For You All.

Of the Joey stuff, which I always found a bit cheesy, I'd probably go with either Among The Living or Persistence of Time (though I can't stand their Got The Time cover).  They aren't as cheesy.

Among the Living a Persistence of Time are the best.

I'd agree with that, the rest are average in comparisson IMO.

Actually, I went into town just a little while ago, and I now have 'Spreading The Disease' and 'Persistence Of Time'

I never get bored of 'persistence of time'. It's said to be their most mature work (and most "progressive", comparable to 'rust in peace' for megadeth and 'and justice for all' for metallica). You will not regret your purchase.

Didn't regret it one bit. They both rock.

Anyone hear impressed by the collection of songs 'Attack Of The Killer B's'. 'milk (ode to Billy)' has to be one of the most extreme Anthrax songs.

I prefer the original version of Milk, done by Anthrax side project S.O.D. (Stormtroopers of Death).

I actually like Sounds of White Noise more than Persistance of Time which I found rather disappointing.

I'm in the minority, but I prefer SOWN over anything they did with Joey as singer.  I haven't heard Persistence of Time in a while, but thinking about it I remember there being some of their heaviest material with Joey as singer on that album.  I remember Scott Ian once said that they had a singer like John Bush in mind when they made that album.

from what i've read, Belladonna is back in the band and they were working on new material.

I'm pretty fed up with how that band has operated over the past few years.  They went from Bush to Belladonna to attempt to cash in on nostalgia, had another singer (Dan Nelson I think his name is) who mysteriously left or was fired the band, got John Bush back for a few shows, now Joey's back in.  And supposedly John Bush is still the singer Scott Ian prefers to be in Anthrax.  Pretty messy situation. 

I hope for the sake of Joey, who seems like a good guy from all I've heard, Scott/Anthrax are done with shuffling the deck and have some consistency for once.

^ you are right; they haven't created anything new in almost 7 years, if I remember right, their last studio album was released in 2003, right?

Yes.  They released the great We've Come For You All in 2003.

Among the Living is their most aggressive and intense album, but to me, Persistence of Time is their best one. It's the most serious, consistent and focused.

Out of those, Among the Living for sure.
Great album!

Sound Of White Noise for three reasons:
1. the groove
2. for songs like Only (killer), Black Lodge (very good), and C11 H17 N2 O2 S Na (KILLER)
3. and most of all the voice of John Bush - sorry Joe but John is much better singer....
With all the respect to Joey's voice which is very good but Jon Bush simply is a better singer!

Sound of white noise for sure.
 
Joey's vocals just don't do it for me but thats a personal preference.

"Sound of White Noise" got me into Anthrax, and I still think it's a great and groovy alt. metal album, but recently I've started gravitating more towards their older stuff - especially "Among the Living" - and I think that Joey Belladonna delivers some great performances on the albums with him as the frontman.

Alternative metal??? Never like this term... Metal. Just METAL.

It's a subgenre in this music database, so I use it here on the forums since there is no "just metal" term  (even if I essentially share the "just metal" attitude); one of the reasons why the alt. metal makes sense to use is that it paces a lot of the metal of the 90s on par with the alt. rock scene that influenced that decade and in many ways pervaded heavy metal and injected a lot of insiration into it which has been very important to its subsequent development.

I totally agree with you buddy, just the term "Alternative metal" reminds me bands like Bush who is no metal at all if you want my opinion. When I said "just metal" I was meaning Heavy Metal. I guess I did not set my question with the right way. Excuse me.

Oh, so you're categorizing "Sound of White Noise" as more traditional heavy metal? That makes sense :-) Sorry for misunderstanding your post.

-------------


Posted By: whitedragon1969
Date Posted: 18 Sep 2010 at 4:11pm
Not exactly traditional metal. I would describe the music from "Sound of White Noise" as metal with many modern elements and personally I think is closer to the sound of Pantera and Alice In Chains (actually a mix of both) than to the alternative sound.

In those days we used just two terms to describe this genre of music: Hard Rock and Heavy Metal.
