Anthrax: 'The Greater Of Two Evils' Cover Art Post

The cover art for Anthrax's upcoming collection of Joey Belladonna/Neil Turbin-era songs performed by the band's current lineup, entitled "The Greater of Two Evils", has been posted online at this location.

All the artwork for "The Greater Of Two Evils" was done by Shepard Fairey, the subterranean legend best known for his Andre The Giant-inspired OBEY graphics. "We wanted something different this time out," says Benante who serves not only as drummer and songwriter but as the resident art director as well. "Our last two releases we used famed painter Alex Ross who did two unbelievable covers for us (2003's critically acclaimed 'We've Come For You All' and their live DVD/CD 'Music Of Mass Destruction' which was released earlier this year.), and we wanted to go in a slightly different direction. The cover is very 'flat,' in a good way, and the colors are striking. It will work great as the cover, in posters, t-shirts, whatever, it's just a cool image."

Recorded "live" in the studio over the course of two days, "The Greater Of Two Evils" is made up of 14 classic Anthrax songs the fans demanded by way of the thousands of votes from all over the world received on the band's official web site, Anthrax.com. Based on those votes, the band entered Avatar studios in New York City one cold and snowy weekend last winter and took a trip back in time to revisit songs from their formative releases "Fistful Of Metal" (1984), "Spreading The Disease" (1985), "Among The Living" (1987), "State Of Euphoria" (1988), and "Persistence Of Time" (1990).

"The Greater of Two Evils" is scheduled for release in the U.S. on November 23 via Sanctuary. The complete track listing for the effort is as follows:

01. Deathrider
02. Metal Thrashing Mad
03. Caught In A Mosh
04. A.I.R.
05. Among The Living
06. Keep It In The Family
07. Indians
08. Madhouse
09. Panic
10. I Am The Law
11. Belly Of The Beast
12. N.F.L.
13. Be All End All
14. Gung-Ho
