Anthrax fought long and hard to get this album released, and good goddamn, was it worth the fight!

We’ve Come For You All is nothing short of stellar. From start to finish, this album combines mega-crunching riffs and percussion, perfect vocals, great lyrics, a nice array of tracks, premium guest appearances, and superior production. There’s something for every metal-loving fan here.

The classic-‘Thrax style that you’ve loved throughout the years shine through on tracks such as “What Doesn’t Die” and “Refuse To Be Denied.” “Superhero” also reflects their usual brand of rock, but with a fist-pumping, militant chorus that can only lead to brutal mosh pit mayhem. They also utilize some interesting sound effects here.

“Black Dahlia” is a tall glass of Slayer on the rocks with a twist of Ministry. The title track, “We’ve Come For You All” rounds out the album with an unforgettable dose of pure, old-fashioned metal.

As if Anthrax alone wasn’t good enough, they pull in some “family” friends to lend a hand: Roger Daltrey of The Who and Dimebag Darrell of New Found Power/Pantera. Daltrey and Bush match vocals on “Taking The Music Back.” Dimebag shreds on “Strap It On,” which reeks of Pantera. “There’s some mighty fine groovin’ going on here,” intros Dimebag on “Cadillac Rock Box,” which is titled after his pet name for his Escalade.

Something most notable on this album is drummer Charlie Benante’s turbo-charged flailing on the skins. He’s raised the bar to a maximum level, between his methamphetamine double-kick and octopus-armed bashing, he’s a force to be reckoned with, pushing him in to the top of lot. Check out “Nobody Knows Anything” and you cannot argue – it’s fucking insane! Actually, the musicianship overall on this album is absolutely top-notch. The addition of guitarist Rob Caggiano paired with Scott Ian bring Anthrax to new heights. Bassist Frank Bello keeps the low end hard and heavy, and John Bush's vocals are at their absolute finest!

This chugging, balls-out album will be in the Top 3 of this year’s metal releases – there is no question!
