ANTHRAX Featured On Google Play's "Audiobiography" Series!
Thrash Metal masters ANTHRAX and what is arguably the band's signature album, 'Among the Living, will be featured on Google Play's "Audiobiography" series starting today. ANTHRAX's Scott Ian and Joey Belladonna recently pulled back the curtain exclusively for Google Play, discussing at length stories behind the making of their Gold-certified 1987 album that includes some of the band's most popular tracks - "I Am The Law," "Indians," and Caught in a Mosh." Log onto http://bit.ly/Opbo3T to check it out.
The "Audiobiography" feature launches in tandem with a special catalog sale of some of Anthrax's best-loved albums: 'Spreading the Disease' (1985), 'Among The Living' (1987), 'I'm the Man EP' (1987), 'State of Euphoria' (1988), 'Persistence of Time' (1990), 'Attack of the Killer Bs' (1991), 'We've Come for You All' (2003), 'Caught in a Mosh: BBC Live in Concert' (2007), and the band's most recent release, the critically-acclaimed 'Worship Music' (2011). All albums are priced at $6.99; two tracks, "Indians" and "Madhouse," are available for only $.49, while "Caught In A Mosh" is being offered as a free download.
'Among the Living' was released at a time when the Thrash Metal genre was exploding - Metallica's 'Master of Puppets', Slayer's 'Reign In Blood' and Megadeth's 'Peace Sells' had just hit the streets, birthing what came to be known as The Big Four. The cover art for 'Among the Living' is an original painting that some say features a rendition of the maleficent Rev. Henry Kane from the "Poltergeist" films. As the band's Charlie Benante explained, "the album is basically about Good and Evil...how much evil there is among us."
As previously reported, thanks to NASA, ANTHRAX is the first Metal band to ever have its music played on Mars. Read more about this story HERE!
