Biography

"Unmistakable riffs, mindf**k drumming and classic songs--they've opened too many doors to mention. Badasses."

--Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters

"In the pantheon of modern metal, Anthrax are certainly a cornerstone, and if one listens, one can hear their influence on any number of up-and-coming bands of the new generation."

I only got this double CD to finnish off my massive Anthrax collection. I prefare the new Anthrax material myself so I was'nt really expecting much when I bought this. I'll start with the Fistfull of Metal CD. I expected it to sound like a poor quality, slapped together in five minutes demo tape, but I was wrong. The album contained all the talent, speed and skill that many bands of today could only dream of. I was amased at the speed of Panic, and the heaviness of Metal Thrashing Mad. Fistfull of Metal was a great foundation for Anthrax to build on. The second CD in the package is the Armed and Dangerous EP. With Joey Belladonna taking over on vocals from Neil Turbin, this allready sounds a lot better. The song Armed And Dangerous is as heavy as they come, fulfilling all your metal needs and theres a live version of Panic on there thats even faster than the origional! So if your an Anthrax fan, or even an old school metal fan, I would advise you to get this!

So, this is where it started for Anthrax. This album features the original singer who isn't bad at all - so don't let that put you off. Sure, this isn't their best album, but it contains all the ingredients that made Anthrax great. It's by far their fastest album, but there are moments where the pace slows down. The lyrics are intentionally cheesy and probably the funniest of all the Anthrax lyrics. There are plenty of worthy songs on here, don't start off here, but if you're looking for thrash you should probably get this before their Bush era stuff. The Armed and dangerous E.P. has Joey singing and features some great songs which are unavailable elsewhere (except AAD itself).

At the height of the thrash/speed metal explosion a band named Anthrax emerged with 'Fistful of Metal'. While room for improvemnt, this is a promising debut effort from the guys which promised what was to come. The high-lights are 'Deathrider', 'Metal Thrashing Mad' and 'Soldiers of Metal'. This also includes an Alice Cooper cover 'Im 18'.
Greater albums were to follow (as well as new singers) yet Fistful of Metal showed the scene what to expect. If you haven't got an Anthrax album yet, make it 'Among the Living' or their latest 'We've Come For You All', only THEN get this. Despite that, this is still worth having.

Summary: A classic thrash metal album.
Reviewer: From Paignton, United Kingdom.
Anthrax have a reputation of being one of the “Big Four” thrash bands of all time (the others being Slayer, Metallica and Megadeth). Fistful of Metal was there first vinyl album to be released and I’m sure many will agree that its sound exemplifies what thrash metal is all about. This release is in your face and characterised by rhythm changes,mood swings and harmonic modulations.
When I first heard this album I was hooked from the very first power cords. The album kicks off with “Deathrider” and then is followed by the all time classic “Metal Thrashing Mad”. Other notable tracks include a cover version of Alice Coopers “I’m Eighteen”, “Howling Furies” and “Soldiers of Metal”. Although the whole record is of classic quality and comparable to that of Metallica’s “Kill ‘em All”, Megadeth's “Killing is My Business and Slayers “Show no Mercy”.
The records line up includes Scott Ian (Rhythm and Wang Guitar), Dan Spitz (Lead Guitar), Neil Turbin (Vocals), Dan Lilker (Bass Guitar) and Charlie Benante (Drums). Consequently the music is rather less industrial sounding than their latest release “We Have Come For You All” and has a very different vocal style to the bands 1980’s releases, during which time Joe Belladonna was the lead vocalist.
In my personal opinion this is a record of historical significance in the world of thrash metal and I truly believe that it deserves a place in any speed metal fans collection. Place your order today – you will not be disappointed.
