Hear New Anthrax Song “Evil Twin”
Anthrax has released the official lyric video for “Evil Twin”, the first new song from their long-awaited album, set for a first quarter 2016 worldwide release (Megaforce in North America, Nuclear Blast in Europe). Watch it below!
“Evil Twin” is now available digitally, and can be purchased via Apple Music, iTunes and Amazon.
“Yeah, that opening riff is really evil,” laughed the band’s Charlie Benante. “We had done a lot of touring with Death Angel and Exodus, so I was in a really thrashy state of mind when I starting writing the riffs for that song. I think along with Scott’s lyrics and Frank’s melodies, we came up with a really great, old-school thrash metal feel.”
As Anthrax bassist Frank Bello put it, “it’s a song that begs to be played live.”
“I was very affected by the Charlie Hebdo massacre as I have been with all of the shootings that have taken place at schools and movie theatres,” said Antrax’s lyricist Scott Ian. “I can’t figure out what would cause someone to think that was the right thing to do. ‘I’ll show the world, I’ll make my God happy.’ It’s just such bullshit. I’m not bagging on religion, that’s not my intent, but people who go to that extreme, who feel they have become judge, jury and executioner over their fellow man because you or I don’t believe the same thing they do, I think that’s the ‘Evil Twin’ of humanity. Writing words about that is my only catharsis.”
Anthrax are touring Europe for 7 weeks with Slayer starting this Sunday, October 25!
