  • Legendary thrash metal band Anthrax made history by being one of the first ever metal bands to include a blend of rap into their songs nearly a decade before the style became popular. To this day, I believe that Anthrax has never received the respect they deserve.The main focus of this E.P. is obviously the groundgreaking single “I’m The Man”. The song is quite simply hilarious, and the mix of musical stylings makes it perfect. The verses sound similar to a Beastie Boys song, and the chorus is pretty Gwar-like. Some of today’s rock-rap bands who think making 60 songs about killing someone is “hilarious” should listen to the originaters and take notes. There’s also another version of this song on “Attack of the Killer B’s”, but it doesn’t compare to the genius of this one.The cover of Black Sabbath’s “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” is extremely well-done and and shows off a different side of Joey’s vocals. The only flaw with this E.P. is the live version of “I’m The Man”, which sounds disorganized and sloppily done (but even then, the ad-libbed stuff from the band members is still pretty funny). The two live songs originally from “Among the Living” (“Caught In A Mosh” and “I Am The Law”) are a nice addition and almost as good as the originals. Overall, if you’re a fan of Anthrax, or a fan of humorous rap-metal, this is a must have.
