Album Review: Anthrax, "The Sound of White Noise"

"This is a journey into sound" runs the intro into Anthrax's latest album, and the statement doesn't lie. With ex-Armoured Saint vocalist John Bush the band have found a voice which is far more becoming their style. His deeper, more fear-infected delivery adds a new twist to the might of Anthrax's riff-hungry power. Only and Room For One More gravitate from meaty mosh hooks whereas Black Lodge, inspired by the Twin Peaks series, harbours a far more sinister undercurrent. If The Sound of White Noise proves anything about the band, it's that they've evolved into a vastly more dynamic outfit. And I didn't mention Scott Ian once. Damn!
