Some are calling this a comeback. Some, with old singer Joey Belladonna back on board, call it a return to their roots. Really it is neither. The music here is the same style and great substance that Anthrax was putting out with John Bush. Groovy, catchy, and heavy music. Joey even sings in a little lower register so you can almost get a sense of how this would have sounded with Bush at the helm. So really if you were worried about the band stumbling with Joey back, don't. Charlie, Scott, and Frank still write the tunes and they are not changing what they must feel is a winning formula. For those hoping that Joey would signal a return to Spreading the Disease type material. Keep waiting. Anthrax have kept their metal but still add in brilliant hard rock, rock and doom moments to keep this the most consistant album they have done since Sound of White Noise. These guys always wrote great songs and this album does deliver. With the Big 4 hype adn press with Joey's return hopefully more people take notice of that fact. 2 Side notes: Rob Caggiano brings in some killer solos here and stick around for the hidden take on one of the most brilliant songs ever, The Refused's New Noise. Songs to get caught in a mosh to: In the End, Devil You Know, and The Constant.
