Anthrax Streaming AC/DC Cover

Anthrax continues to preview their forthcoming covers EP with the latest song stream featuring their take on an AC/DC classic.

The Thrash Metal veterans will be releasing the new 8-track covers EP, "Anthems,' on March 19th in North America.

This past week Megaforce Records released a stream the band's cover of AC/DC classic "TNT" and Charlie Benante spoke with Music Radar about why they selected it.

"This was Joey's [Belladonna, vocals] track," Benante told the site. "We already had Whole Lotta Rosie recorded, but he wanted T.N.T. I can see why: his voice totally lends itself to this track.

"AC/DC is probably one of the greatest bands ever. The came in with a certain sound, and they'll end with that same exact sound. They never altered it; they just stayed true to what they were. To me, that's an honest-to-goodness rock 'n' roll band.

"It would have been obvious to pick something off of Highway To Hell or Back In Black, and so we didn't. [Laughs] I studied every Phil Rudd lick, and I did not go overboard with anything. I played exactly what he played on T.N.T. You can't do a fast drum fill on the song it'll stand out as being out of place. I laid it down, pulled it back, and that was that."
