Way back in September 2011, Anthrax released their tenth studio album! The album was called Worship Music, and managed to debut at number 12 on US charts, making it their highest chart rating since 1999.
Because music is our religion over here on Immortal Music, there was absolutely no way we were going to pass up this album, just because of the name. We must say, we did like what we heard, for the most part.
The lead single from the album is called "Fight 'Em Til You Can't", and was released in June of the same year. That being said, while the track is catchy and has a sort of apocalyptic vibe to it that the world would go nuts over, there's much more to this album to love.
Especially "The Devil You Know", which is all about going with what you think feels right for you, even if others see it as something sinful. Its fast paced, and real. We like it a lot. "Its just the devil in me. There's no hypocrisy. What you see is what you get."
Other stand out tracks include, "The Giant", which speaks of the struggle of trying to go on when you feel like you're drowning a bit. Yet you still keep pushing on. This is something that everyone needs to be reminded of now and again, and they do it very well. Don't give up the fight.
As of right now, this is Anthrax's most recent full length album, but that is about to change on February 26! Pre-orders are available now for their brand new album, For All Kings through Anthrax's official website or through iTunes. While you're over on their website, be sure to check out their tour dates because they are extremely busy. You can catch them on tour right now with Lamb Of God, Deafheaven and Powertrip until the 12th of February. After that, they will be touring all over Mexico and Brazil, with a stop in Puerto Rico with Iron Maiden and Megadeth for one of the dates. After that, they go straight into playing festivals like Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville, the Rock N' Derby, and more! Please visit the festival websites, or Anthrax's website for more information.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
