ANTHRAX PREMIERE’S NEW COVER SONG FROM UPCOMING EP – RUSH’S “ANTHEM”
In addition to the EP’s cover art, each of the cover songs will have its own special artwork, each one based on the tracks’ original album cover art, but subtly “reimagined” by Anthrax’s Charlie Benante and artist Stephen Thompson.
Anthems was produced by Anthrax, Jay Ruston and Rob Caggiano, and recorded for the most part throughout 2012 literally all over the world: at Benante’s home studio, in Ruston’s New York studio, on the band’s tour bus while on last summer’s Mayhem Tour, in hotel rooms, and backstage at their Berlin show last December.
Anthems EP Cover Art:
Awesome version of one of my favorite 70’s Rush tunes! The bass, guitar solo and ESPECIALLY the drums were very faithful to the original. And Joey sounds fantastic! Great job, Anthrax! Can’t wait to hear the rest of the EP!
Not bad but why cover a song and have it sound exactly like the original? Why not record it in your own style?
This does not suprise me Joey has a little known side cover band called Big Chief Way that plays in Central NY from time to time in between breaks with Anthrax some of their vids are posted on youtube check them out
i stand a little corrected the bands name is Chief Big Way
Fucken A these guys pulled it off, I can only say that as a huge fan of Anthrax they are awesome in every way. I go way back with Anthrax as well as with Rush, thank the Universe for both.
