It's been ages since I've heard about Anthrax, mainly because I felt a bit uninterested by the band's kind of sound but some weeks ago I decided to take a listen to this "We've Come for You All" and here I am now writing about it.

I admit that I feel very impressed by the album because I didn't saw this coming...! I was kinda expecting to hear those old formulas, the "old" guys trying to be funny while they are not funny anymore, but Anthrax are really different now: a more mature band, with some very interesting sound mixing rock and thrash metal in a very balanced way, going smoother sometimes, louder once in a while, but maintaining their coolness, yes because that's what Anthrax has always been about! The band managed to build some instant classics like "Superhero", "Safe Home", the funny "Cadillac Rock Box" and "Taking the Music Back", with great rhythm and catchy melodies, but they also managed to build some more serious and intense tracks like "Any place but here", "Refuse to be denied" or "
One of the strengths of Anthrax is a man called John Bush! He's always been a great vocalist and even Metallica wanted him in the old days when no one in the band wanted to sing (yes, now we like Hetfield, mainly because we got used to him but imagine this guy singing in Metallica: it would've been great!). Well, John Bush gives Anthrax a power that the band didn't had before with Belladonna. It's not that Belladonna is a bad singer at all but hell Bush is more of a thrash singer than Belladonna is and it's voice is almost perfect in this work. The tougher songs are "Strap it on" and the really heavy "Black Dahlia", but although I don't like them too much, it's my personal taste because there's Nothing really wrong with them.

"We've Come for You All" is (after all) a great work for Anthrax. Some might say it has some "easy" songs, made for being radio-hits but if that it's part of the fun, I don't have anything negative to say about that, since I have myself turned a bit softer since the 90's, when I could listen to much less-melodic songs. Overall ratings here are a bit low in my opinion but it's my understanding that this might be one of the best Anthrax albums.
