Published Oct 23, 2015After spreading the news earlier this week that an anniversary edition of Spreading the Disease drops next month, thrash masters Anthrax have now unveiled the first official taste of their next full-length. The band are taking aim at religious zealotry in a tune called "Evil Twin," which they are previewing with a lyric video.
The track features an on-the-beat snare attack from Charlie Benate, some chunky, trilled-out riffs and Joey Belladonna's signature, angry-but-tuneful cries. A press release notes that the track is a kiss-off to "the infamous zealots and others who have perpetrated violent extremism on innocents around the world."
The lyric video is licked in flames and dripping in blood, and sends out bad vibes to so-called martyrs who offer up "empty words."
