This review is from: Fistful of Metal (Audio CD)
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.
