Hell hath no fury like Anthrax music!
New York metal group Anthrax are getting ready to deliver a new album next year. To give fans a taste of what to expect, they have shared an official lyric video for "Evil Twin" that proves they can still deliver epic thrash metal. Watch it above.
Guitarist Scott Ian spoke with Rolling Stone about the song:
Let's forget for a moment the history of radical extremism and why we live in a world where it exists and just think about now. That's what "Evil Twin" is about. It's my relationship to the violence perpetrated by radical extremists. It's my anger towards it and it's my hatred towards the inability to stop it.
Drummer Charlie Benante also talked about the figures seen in the video and about trying to be careful not to glorify them:
We think that just paves the way for the next fanatic, but we did want to include a lot of the people who are in some way responsible for the terror and violence in the world today, whether it's committing brutal murder in the name of religion or dealing in arms or arming our allies who then become our enemies. In today's world, it seems like there are those people who are working to try and save the planet, and those that are working to make it extinct. That's pretty evil.
"Evil Twin" is the first new song from the band's as-yet-untitled upcoming album, which is set for a first quarter 2016 worldwide release.
You can download the song via Amazon.
Anthrax is currently on a European tour with Slayer and Kvelertak that will last into December. For more information about that, as well as the band's music and news, check out their Zumic artist page.
