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."

- Kirk Hammett, ... Read more in Amazon's Anthrax Store

This is certainly an album that splits the vote. The only certainty is that it's the one that crept under the radar; the early Anthrax material is very well known; Persistence of Time, Stomp 442 and Sound of White Noise signalled a revival in musical respect after the excesses of image that rather overshadowed their efforts in the late 80's. But "Threat"? Off the radar.

When I bought this way back in 98, it was almost under duress. I quit Anthrax along with Belladonna, viewing the whole thrash scene as tired, derivative and dominated by growlers. Boring. A friend of mine raved about the record, so I bought it eventually, slapped it on, and was hooked - maybe not from "Crush", which is a respectable opening but nothing outstanding; maybe not from "Catharsis" which was a good rocking number and certainly boded well; but from the pounding energy of "Inside Out", yes! "PnV", top notch metal number with a killer chorus! "Toast to the Extras", not typical Anthrax, granted, but so what? Have some fun from time to time! "Harm's Way", includes acoustic and slide, some top notch vocals, and is the outstanding track on the album (plus the bonus, "Pieces" - makes you wonder why Anthrax don't venture more into ballad territory, cos they can certainly hack it there). I don't want to go through the track list verbatim, suffice to say that when I listen to this, I never cherry-pick the best tracks; I stick it on and listen to every one because there isn't one I want to miss.

Yes, there are nods to other acts of the time, particularly Pantera. So what? There are no rip-offs, just a band introducing aspects of something that has influenced them into their own sound - just as bands like Pantera were influenced by Anthrax.

From the opening track of Crush you know Anthrax haven't chilled out in their old age (in fact the opposite is true!) - I rate this as one of their best (alongside Sound Of White Noise and Persistance Of Time) - Also, check out 'Toast to the Extras' - it shows they still have their cool sense of humour. :o)

V8 was one of my all-time fave albums anyway, keeps you listening the whole way through, from Charlies (+ the tom army's) lightning drumming, to the intense Inside Out and Catharsis, then... the Rest! Now with the bonus tracks, it's capacity to fulfill your metal needs has just got better!

This clearly isn't as hard metal as some of their other albums, but Anthrax produced an absolute epic album with 'volume8' that doesn't get nearly enough credit.
The first four tracks are brilliant, in particular 'Inside Out'. 'Toast to the extras' is a bit... erm... interesting, but 'Born again idiot' & 'Killing box' pick up the pace again. 'Harms way' is a brilliantly powerful ballad and is a definate highlight. The trend of great hard rocking songs continues til the end, while the closer 'Pieces' is a full on acoustic ballad.
The bonus tracks arent especially anything to rant about, one of which is 'the bends' - Anthrax doing a cover of Radiohead was not a good idea.
Ignoring that however, this is a great album and instantly likeable - easily better than the overrated 'Sound of White Noise'

"Volume 8 - The Threat Is Real" shows the lowest point in Anthrax's career, after the loss of their great guitarist Dan Spitz and the disappointing "Stomp 442" they proofed that it could get worse. not a single good song on a disk with 14 tracks. the hidden-track "Pieces" is the only good song on the disk (i'm referring to the original version of the album). the disk starts with the industrial-like "Crush" which is decent but can get annoying really quickly, it is followed by "Catharsis", probably the best of the 14 songs on the disk, not bad but compared to other rock-songs of the 90's (for example "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters) it sucks. the 3rd song is the nu-metal-wannabe "Inside Out" which is heavily influenced by KORN, Anthrax probably thought they could win the kids' hearts with it. "P&V" is absolutely terrible, annoying and can cause headache, definitely one of the worst songs of their career, "604" is a nice S.O.D./M.O.D.-style gag (one of the few good tracks on the cd). "Toast To The Extras" is IMO definitely the worst song of their career, a bad country song, who wants anything like that from Anthrax? they did it better in '91 with "Startin' Up A Posse" which was also country-like but had their typical Thrash-sound in it. "Born Again Idiot" is the only Thrash-song on the disk and it is really bad, it can't even be compared to their Thrash-glory of the 80's and makes Anthrax seem like a shadow of themselves. "Killing Box" is a boring, annoying song with Phil Anselmo screaming in it. then it's getting better with "Harms Way", one of the best songs on the disk, slow, soft but nothing special.Read more ›
