"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."

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply excellent 22 Sep 2007
By Ld Gray
Format:Audio CD
Genre defining? Slightly irrelevant now like all 80's "Thrash" reviews (I know this is a 1990 release) Metallica, Megadeth, testament, Exodus, Atheist, fook the name dropping this album rocks, it is great I love it, if you do too, then fookin A! Joey realises his vocal apex, (no Warblin).
Interesting riffs, quite progressive (only because the tracks are more then 5 minutes long)

Try it, if you don't like it, it should have only cost you a fiver so sell it a a boot fair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrash Metal Classic 28 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1990 this was one of the last true thrash albums to impact on the mainstream market. Through out the mid to late 80's Anthrax with Metallica, had led Thrash and more importantly extreme (which it was for it's time) music into the public spotlight. By 1990 Thrash had reached it's commercial height, but was about to die a sad and premature death.
While the album itself was never going to better Anthrax's masterpiece Among The Living released in 1987, it still continued Anthrax evolution from 1988 State Of Euphoria and managed to sound fresh and new unlike a lot of the other Thrash band such as Slayer who's album Seasons In The Abyss, also released in 1990 sounded as if they were simply repeating South Of Heaven from 2 years earlier.
Persistence Of Time itself captured the sound of the time. While still firmly rooted in the old school sound they had made for themselves in the 80's there were hints of the new progressive sound the would use to reinvent for themselves in the 90's with John Bush.
As usual with Anthrax the rhythm section of Ian, Benate and Bello out does any other Thrash outfit. Dan Spitz often over looked as a lead guitarist plays some of the best solos of his carer, while Joey Belladonna sings out of his skin epitomising the operatic style used by many Thrash bands of the 80's, on what would be his last studio album with the band.
If you are a fan of any of Anthrax's albums during the 80's you really should by this album as it is not just a classic Anthrax album but a classic of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now its Dark 19 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
This was never my favourite Anthrax album, I bought it on vinyl at the time and maybe due to where I was in my life, the more complex, almost progressive nature of some of the songs did not sit right with me at the time.

In retrospect, "The Persistence of Time" is second only to "Among The Living". As much as I still like "State of Euphoria", sandwiched between "AtL" and "PoT", "State of Euphoria" now sounds rather empty and souless.

I always much preferred the Joey-era of Anthrax and Belladonna sounds mighty fine on "PoT"...darker and more menacing, rumbling with some of the heavyweight subject matter.

"Persistence of Time" still stands as a fine Anthrax album and certainly belies its age.

Got the time?
