ANTHRAX’S METAL CLASSIC AMONG THE LIVING

DIGITALLY REMASTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME

AND EXPANDED FOR CD+DVD DELUXE EDITION

WITH BONUS TRACKS AND CONCERT FILM “OIDIVNIKUFESIN”

 

TWO-CD CAUGHT IN A MOSH: BBC LIVE IN CONCERT,

WITH TWO 1987 U.K. CONCERTS,

ALSO MAKES U.S. DEBUT

 

“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, Metallica

 

“Anthrax rules!...If you don’t own Among The Living, you’re f**king stupid.”

— Comedian/metalhead Brian Posehn

 

Pioneering metal band Anthrax, one of the genre’s most influential, innovative and respected groups, melded the speed and fury of hardcore punk with the guitars and vocals of heavy metal to help create speed and thrash metal. Now what many consider the group’s greatest album, 1987’s Among The Living, has been expanded with bonus tracks and a concert DVD, and digitally remastered for the first time, for the CD+DVD package Among The Living (Deluxe Edition) (Island/Megaforce/UMe), released November 10, 2009.

 

Issued simultaneously will be the two-CD set Caught In A Mosh: BBC Live In Concert (Island/Megaforce/UMe), which brings together 1987 U.K. concerts from the Among The Living world tour recorded at Hammersmith Odeon and the Donnington Festival. Making its U.S. debut, Caught In A Mosh: BBC Live In Concert was originally released internationally in 2007.

 

Among The Living, originally produced by Eddie Kramer and Anthrax, was the band’s third full-length album and featured the lineup of singer Joe Belladonna, lead guitarist Dan Spitz, rhythm guitarist Scott Ian, bassist Frank Bello and drummer Charlie Benante. Building on an underground following with signature tracks such as “I Am The Law,” “Caught In A Mosh” and “Indians,” the album catapulted Anthrax to widespread recognition and earned the group’s first gold award. Among The Living also marked the height of the band’s use of horror and comic book inspirations, with the title track and album cover image based on the Stephen King novel The Stand, “A Skeleton In The Closet” on King’s novella Apt Pupil, and “I Am The Law” on the comic book character Judge Dredd.

 

Added for the new Among The Living (Deluxe Edition) version are previously unreleased studio outtakes of “Indians,” “One World” and “Imitation Of Life”; an instrumental of “I’m The Man”; a live-in-Dallas 1987 version of “I Am The Law”; and “Bud E Luv Bomb And Satan’s Lounge Band,” originally released as the “I Am The Law” b-side. The bonus DVD is the live-in-London concert film “OIDIVNIKUFESIN (N.F.V.),” which went gold when issued on video in 1987. “This record was done at a time when life was moving so fast for us, and I think the music reflects that pace. I really enjoyed going back into 1986/87 and found some great stuff in my vault I had forgot about. I think Anthrax fans will enjoy this remastered collection; the high end and low end is back as how it was intended to sound. Thrash metal is alive and well in Among The Living,” says drummer Charlie Benante.

 

Anthrax would go on to score a platinum EP and four more gold albums as well as break new ground with a fusion of rock and rap. The classic lineup reunited to tour from 2005-2006, after changes a dozen-plus years earlier. On its solo dates, Anthrax played one album in its entirety--Among The Living.

    • CRT is what they are trying to force into our elementary schools, it teaches kids that they have privilege if they are white, if they are black they are oppressed, and no matter what they do in life all the rules and laws in this country are racist and rigged so if your a minority its all working against you, it's garbage, and it's further proof that these fucking cockroaches really are not interested in trying to improve race relations in the US, they are only into playing identity politics and making sure racism not only survives but thrives, if racism goes away then so does their meal ticket.
    • Shit I was into that Duke Nukem shit,
    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.  
    • And while Young & Fabulous does the most excellent TPOH inspired 1980's glam fused rock n roll, the Upper Crust go old old old school and take it back to the 1880's, Once More Into the Breeches, baby. Both band are far to witty with not only their tongues but yours and your girlfriends jabbed into their cheek
    • You're either into that sort of thing or you aren't... I've been into gaming since Doom released in 1993...actually I even gamed before that on bulletin boards before the internet really got going....
    • Washington State has a boatload of glam bands for glamier than the likes of Heart, no disputing MLB, cuz Landrew the love god is well god. Teachers Pett Rail Gibby Lixx Show N Tell Perennial War Babies TKO Bang Gang Talks Cheap Tramp Alley Alice N Chains (pre Facelift) Diamond Lie Lipstick Aurora Bathtub Gin Whiskey Fixx Masheen Heck even the new (er) Prophets of Addiction ...to name a few, plenty more.  
    • What pray tell is "critical race theory"?
