The official lyric video for “Evil Twin”, the first new song from ANTHRAX‘s long-awaited album, set for a first quarter 2016 worldwide release (Megaforce in North America, Nuclear Blast in Europe), can be streamed below. The clip is a compelling barrage of places, victims, actions, and some of the infamous zealots and others who have perpetrated violent extremism on innocents around the world, aptly exemplifying the song’s powerful message.
“Evil Twin” is now available digitally, and can be purchased via Apple Music, iTunes and Amazon.
Musically, “Evil Twin” is a full-on thrash-metal tune that blasts off with a raging guitar riff, accelerates expeditiously and is completely uncontrollable.
“Yeah, that opening riff is really evil,” laughed the band’s Charlie Benante. “We had done a lot of touring with DEATH ANGEL and EXODUS, so I was in a really thrashy state of mind when I starting writing the riffs for that song. I think along with Scott’s lyrics and Frank’s melodies, we came up with a really great, old-school thrash metal feel.”
As ANTHRAX bassist Frank Bello put it, “it’s a song that begs to be played live.”
