    Definitely one of my favourites so far. Joey is amazing on that tune.

    Is it just me, or does Jon's solo have a real Dime tone here?

    TImmy: Yeah, the whole record. The thing with WM is that it was much more diverse.

    Zero Tolerance riffs sound a bit like POT or ATL.

    Apologies I'm not very good at downloading leaked or dodgy stuff. Is it available to stream anywhere? Needless to say I will be getting a copy 1st day in Feb when it's released the same as I have with every album since SOWN. Apart from Alive. I was still pretty sore about the reunion at that point lol

    The fact that it leaked from Nuclear Blast through Spotify is really going to get Scott's balls. The dude has been knocking streaming for a long time and now it's fucked his entire new album release up. Holy hell.

    Agreed. Grabbed me a the 1st listen.Just got to the 2nd song,,LOVE the big vocals and leads...Early but so far sounds like a big step up from WM.

    The melodies / harmonies are MUCH better with Joey / Frank / Scott collaborating. Catchy / stronger riffs. Leads are SWEET as fuck,,,Don't get me wrong, WM was great but THIS is the album I was waiting on Anthrax to make.

    Don't see any difference if the album leaks a week prior to the official release, as all albums do, or two months prior to it. If anything it's helping the hype.

    Yeah, knowing everyone who posts on here will buy the record ( and surely some multiple times) it didn't bother me posting about the record leaking on here.

    Hopefully Johnnie is right and it helps increase hype. But 2 months is a long time for the very casual average metal fan to keep excited about a record these days.

    Probably close to ruining the last decent metal label, anthrax won't put up with that nor should they

    I'd probably like more of these songs if they weren't so epic. It seems like some of them could've been trimmed down, but that's probably just me. I like short songs.

    I'd say that upon first listen, I can see where someone would say that, but if anything this one seems even more diverse to me. Whereas WM was very obviously different from song to song, FAK's diversity seems to be spread more evenly within each song. Instead of banking wholeheartedly on making each song a stylistic departure from the last, the new material has more unexpected detours than WM did. That sort of approach can tend to make an album seem more evenhanded even though there's probably more going on. ....or maybe that's just me.

    Zero Tolerance is my favorite from the new one.
