ANTHRAX / Sound of White Noise (1993)

This was the band's sixth album but the first with vocalist John Bush.  His arrival coincided with a shift from the straight-up thrash sound of previous albums toward a more friendly melodic post-grunge sound.  Long time fans were appalled.  I was intrigued.
I find Bush to be a better vocalist that Belladonna.  His range is lower and admittedly less varied but it’s less harsh on the ears.
The album has aged better than much of the Anthrax discography.  It’s a powerful collection of songs, even if they aren't considered very ‘Anthrax’ by fans.
