  • After nearly five years, Anthrax are FINALLY back with their latest studio album, and to be perfectly honest, it couldn’t have come sooner. This is without a doubt the BEST metal album I’ve heard this year, bar none. Almost every beat, every riff, and every lick on this album is perfect, which definitely goes to show that the guys of Anthrax certainly didn’t sit on their laurels during their long absense. Here are the track ratings, as far as my personal opinion goes:1.) Contact (3/5) This isn’t really a song, but an intro into the rest of the album. At least, unlike other bands, Anthrax makes there intro sound like a song, albeit a very short one. It’s still good and serves it’s purpose.2.) What Doesn’t Die (5/5) This was the first track that I ever heard before this album’s release, and it’s still one of my favorites. Charlie boggles the mind yet again with his impossibly fast double-bass drums.3.) Superhero (5/5) Another really good song. This one is basically your standard Anthrax song, which is in no way a bad thing.4.) Refuse To Be Denied (4/5) Eh, this song is okay. Not as hard as some of the others, but not the fastest either. Kinda has an almost patriotic feel to it, unlike most metal songs.5.) Safe Home (5/5) The first single. Sure, it’s radio friendly. Sure, it’s the softest song on the album. But I’ll guarantee that it’ll get stuck in your head after a few listens.6.) Any Place But Here (5/5) What, another ballad? No! That intro is just there to confuse you. This song is actually quite fast, and has a killer chorus to boot. Still, it’s no possible match for…7.) Nobody Knows Anything (10/5) My personal favorite song on the CD. Just about everything about this song is great. I have no idea how Charlie pulled off the drums in this song without his legs falling off. The only thing bad about this song is it’s too short, but that can be overlooked.8.) Strap It On (3/5) I guess this song is okay, but the lyrics don’t make too much sense to me. I suppose this one is made more for their older “Belladonna-generation” fans.9.) Black Dahlia (2/5) My least favorite song on the album. The rapid drums and guitars sound cool, but they’re way too off-beat and awkward. That, and again, the lyrics confuse me.10.)Cadillac Rock Box (4/5) Ah good, another decent song. This one has sort of a southern rock guitar riff to it to please all you Skynyrd freaks.11.) Taking the Music Back (5/5) Roger Dahltrey of The Who fame guess stars on this track, although he’s really not used that much. It’s still a most excellent song though, with yet another amazing chorus.12.) Crash (1/5) Yet another skit, although this seems to be nothing more than Frank Bello mumbling semi-incoherently for about 50 seconds. Thankfully it’s short, so you don’t have to skip it everytime.13.) Think About An End (5/5) Just another typical Anthrax song. Just as good as all the others, with an above-average chorus.14.) W.C.F.Y.A. (We’ve Come For You All) (5/5) And now we finally have the title track of the album, and it certainly does not disappoint. Needless to say, you’ll be shouting out “We’ve come for you all” along with John after a few listens.My final verdict is this: If you are a Anthrax fan, a metal fan, or even a rock music fan in general, you NEED this album. It’s been a long time coming, but Anthrax have finally come for us all. Let’s all join them in heavy-metal nirvana, shall we?
