    Productivity happens when you can keep a singer for more than a few months at a time ;)

    So, recording B-sides means that they are planning on releasing a single from WM? I wonder what the A-side will be. In the End?

    Never really understood the concept of a B-Sides album (if we leave out the cover songs).

    What does a band in question want to with it? "Hey, here are the songs that are not good enough for the album".

    ?

    Looks like the tribute record song is.....



    Anthem by Rush.



    Now to see if it's an Anthrax cover, or he's just doing the drums for the song, and other people do the other parts ala a lot of tribute records.

    No it's more along the lines of "Here's a buch of tunes we recorded in a hurry to have some bonus songs for our last run of singles. They actually turned out pretty great, and a lot of you folks probably haven't heard them all. Therefore we're sticking them all on a single disk for you to enjoy".

    I generally like B-sides albums. B-sides are often more rushed than recordings for official albums, and it often sparks that extra bit of creativity that comes from having little time availible to write and record the tunes.

    I don't think I've ever disliked a B-side from a band I was into. They have time constraints and creative reasons for not including them. Some songs just don't fit with the album.
