Anthrax Unleash Anthemic ‘Vice of the People’ Ahead of ‘For All Kings’ Box Set Release
Anthrax fans, it’s time to dig into a rarity! The band has just unleashed the song “Vice of the People” ahead of the band’s For All Kings limited-edition 7″ box set release this Friday (March 24). The song was previously released only as a bonus track in Japan, so now the rest of the world can get a chance to hear this gem.
The track opens with a bit of a showcase for drummer Charlie Benante, who dominates the early part of the song with a catchy open behind the kit that is eventually joined by the band’s guitars and bass before settling into a more anthemic song. “Do you solemnly swear to use your powers for evil / Only then can you be the vice of the people” belts Joey Belladonna. Later in the track, fans will get to hear some impressive guitar work. Check out the song in the player below.
As stated, the track is included with the For All Kings limited edition 7″ box set that’s coming this Friday. If you want to learn more and pick up the collector’s item box set, head here.
