Anthrax To Release New EP ‘Anthems’

Thrash metal legends Anthrax will be releasing an 8-track EP entitled Anthems on March 19th in N. America. The EP features six covers from band such as Rush, Cheap Trick, Boston, and more, and two Anthrax tracks. For their cover of Boston’s “Smokin’,” the band brought in keyboardist Fred Mandel, who has recorded with Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd, Queen, Elton John, and many more.

Drummer Charlie Benante comments on the Boston cover, saying, “If ever there were a perfect first album, it’s Boston’s first album. The harmony leads they did would later be heard by Iron Maiden, which of course would lead to thrash metal.

Vocalist Joey Belladonna, “These are all bands I grew up with and have listened to forever. It’s just great music. I had fun singing these songs and I was happy recording together with Anthrax, doing classic rock songs. Fun stuff!

Rush “Anthem”
Thin Lizzy “Jailbreak”
AC/DC “TNT”
Boston “Smokin'”
Cheap Trick “Big Eyes”
Journey “Keep on Runnin”
Anthrax “Crawl” (Worship Music version)
Anthrax “Crawl” (Remix)
