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.

    • Unfortunately I have to say that this one and I took a little drive down Disappointment Avenue. Oh lol, good one. Fuckwit.  That aside, it's all solid but I kept hoping the next song would be the killer cut I was after, and then the album was over and it hadn't hit my ears. The best song, in my opinion, is the opener. That is a pretty good, hard hitting tune, but sadly they never surpass it, in my opinion. Okay album, but hopefully next time they fulfil their potential...? Maybe. 
    • 1    .    Awakening 2    .    Black Hole 3    .    Through the Night 4    .    Suffocating 5    .    Learn to Be Alone 6    .    Myself 7    .    Calling You 8    .    Vicious Cycle 9    .    Help Me Out! 10    .    Remedy 11    .    Eclipse 12    .    Summertown Post-hardcore outfit OUR MIRAGE have released their highly anticipated new album Eclipse and close their trilogy with the last chapter, out now worldwide via Arising Empire. Hailing out of Marl, Germany, this four piece post-hardcore group really hits you deep in your emotions. From the ambient music to the emotional lyrics that really strike a nerve, OUR MIRAGE offers a vast variety of elements that many of us can relate to. This young group is becoming known for the emotion that they pour into their music and their latest release Unseen Relations takes that line even deeper. The group largely focuses on the problems that our youth deal with internally, but their music doesn’t just speak to them, it is very intuitive of the problems and struggles that we all deal with on a common basis. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nice album from these guys. Whole bunch of pretty sweet cuts on this one. This is my favourite of the album-   Some other cuts from the album-                
    • Pretty solid for what it is, but sadly, no killer track for me. The title track and 'King Of The Dead' and 'Taste Your Tongue' are my favourites, but none of this will be on my 2022 playlist.  
    • All in all it's a pretty decent album. First two songs and the tasty 'Say Farewell' are my picks of the lot, but everything on here's pretty solid. Biggest critique would probably be that it's all pretty similar and one-dimensional. But it's a pretty solid dimension.  
    • I guess this one's okay in places. Some cool metallic riffs here and there but overall not overly exciting. Solid for what it is, and I imagine Sword die-hards will probably dig it. 
    • Yeah, I was reading your list thinking that I was happy for you that you were that invested in your favourite albums this year. The albums in my list are far better than those, lol but I'm not sure I'm quite as passionate about them as you are about your top 10. Not sure, I say, as I will wait until the end of the year to see how my penned thoughts end up.  Anyway, I'm going to check out this VHS Collection thing tomorrow to see what that's all about. Otherwise, of your list, that Iron Allies one must be the curveball of the year, surely. Cannot for the life of me personally see what you see in that, but to each one's own, and glad you dig. 
    • Well I love my top 10 and it was basically impossible separating them. All killer albums imo. 
    • Pretty crazy, what's going on in China at the moment. Thank goodness you'd never see something like that happen in Austra- oh. Uh, as you were. There must be plenty of videos like this out and about at the moment-    
    • Haha, a couple of you guys keeping pretty quiet about changed minds on synthwave, after being pretty vocal about how terrible it is/was? I must say, I never got into the dark synth stuff like Dance With The Dead... more for the fact that I need vocals with the synthwave I really dig. I've actually heard a few dark synth bands this year I've passed on, with vocals, that I wonder if there'd be interest in here? Just gotta try to remember who they were...  As for the best of the year, not sure what to make of this year. There's an absolute tonne of good to very good albums, but when I look at the top end I'm not exactly blown away by any amazing albums. Good ones, and a lot of really excellent songs this year... but my highest rated album this year is 82%... which is a good album, but nothing looks like even threatening the 90% mark this year, which seems extremely unusual. The best of last year, for instance, seems a lot better than the best of this year. Still, I can't complain as there's been a lot of good music... just not as many great entire albums. 
    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
