Two-CD Caught in a Mosh: BBC Live in Concert, with Two 1987 U.K. Concerts, Also Makes U.S. Debut
“Unmistakable riffs, mindf**k drumming and classic songs–they’ve opened too many doors to mention. Badasses.”–Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters
“In the pantheon of modern metal, Anthrax are certainly a cornerstone, and if one listens, one can hear their influence on any number of up-and-coming bands of the new generation.” — Kirk Hammett, Metallica
“Anthrax rules!…If you don’t own Among The Living, you’re f**king stupid.” –Comedian/metalhead Brian Posehn
Pioneering metal band Anthrax, one of the genre’s most influential, innovative and respected groups, melded the speed and fury of hardcore punk with the guitars and vocals of heavy metal to help create speed and thrash metal. Now what many consider the group’s greatest album, 1987′s Among The Living, has been expanded with bonus tracks and a concert DVD, and digitally remastered for the first time, for the CD+DVD package Among The Living (Deluxe Edition) (Island/Megaforce/UMe), released November 10, 2009.
Issued simultaneously will be the two-CD set Caught In A Mosh: BBC Live In Concert (Island/Megaforce/UMe), which brings together 1987 U.K. concerts from the Among The Living world tour recorded at Hammersmith Odeon and the Donnington Festival. Making its U.S. debut, Caught In A Mosh: BBC Live In Concert was originally released internationally in 2007.
Among The Living, originally produced by Eddie Kramer and Anthrax, was the band’s third full-length album and featured the lineup of singer Joe Belladonna, lead guitarist Dan Spitz, rhythm guitarist Scott Ian, bassist Frank Bello and drummer Charlie Benante. Building on an underground following with signature tracks such as “I Am The Law,” “Caught In A Mosh” and “Indians,” the album catapulted Anthrax to widespread recognition and earned the group’s first gold award. Among The Living also marked the height of the band’s use of horror and comic book inspirations, with the title track and album cover image based on the Stephen King novel The Stand, “A Skeleton In The Closet” on King’s novella Apt Pupil, and “I Am The Law” on the comic book character Judge Dredd.
Added for the new Among The Living (Deluxe Edition) version are previously unreleased studio outtakes of “Indians,” “One World” and “Imitation Of Life,” an instrumental of “I’m The Man,” a live-in-Dallas 1987 version of “I Am The Law,” and “Bud E Luv Bomb And Satan’s Lounge Band,” originally released as the “I Am The Law” b-side. The bonus DVD is the live-in-London concert film “OIDIVNIKUFESIN (N.F.V.),” which went gold when issued on video in 1987. “This record was done at a time when life was moving so fast for us, and I think the music reflects that pace. I really enjoyed going back into 1986/87 and found some great stuff in my vault I had forgot about. I think Anthrax fans will enjoy this remastered collection; the high end and low end is back as how it was intended to sound. Thrash metal is alive and well in Among The Living,” says drummer Charlie Benante.
Anthrax would go on to score a platinum EP and four more gold albums as well as break new ground with a fusion of rock and rap. The classic lineup reunited to tour from 2005-2006, after changes a dozen-plus years earlier. On its solo dates, Anthrax played one album in its entirety–Among The Living.

It has been far too long since we have had a new Ace Frehley solo disc. It has been twenty years since Ace’s last release, Trouble Walkin’. I had high hopes after for this CD after hearing “Outer Space” for the first time. I heard it, on the Hard Rock Nights radio show, a few weeks ago and couldn’t wait to hear more.
Luckily, the good tunes don’t end with “Outer Space”.
“Foxy & Free” reminds me a lot of the Ace Frehley hit, “Rock Soldiers”. You gotta love the cowbell!
Ace Frehley has been known to do a cover or two, and on Anomaly, Ace takes on the Sweet classic, “Fox On The Run”. The funny thing is, I always thought the original tune sounded like a KISS song. Either way, Frehley knocks it out of the park. I love this version.
“Pain In The Neck” could be another Frehley classic. This song has been growing on me with every listen.
“Genghis Khan” left me scratching my head. This tune shows off Frehley’s six string talent, and in that regard, it is pretty cool. The inane lyrics about Genghis Khan seems like they were nothing more than an afterthought. It sounds like they were added after the music was written. This would have been better off as an instrumental in my opinion.
“Too Many Faces” might be a little too similar to “Pain in the Neck” but I like it anyway.
“It’s A Great Life” is a catchy tune, although it is a little different from what I would expect from Frehley. This song has an almost pop/rock style to it.
“Fractured Quantum” is an instrumental song that carries on from Frehley’s previously released Fractured tunes. This is a solid tune, and a decent album closer. (If you buy the iTunes version, you will get a bonus track “The Return of Space Bear”).
Overall, I think Ace Frehley picked up where he left off with Trouble Walkin’. I have been enjoying this disc quite a bit. Anomaly is another solid effort for the Space Ace.
