The ‘Anthrax’ Graffiti Art

Hi Guys !!

As most of you guys know about The Big Four Bands of Thrash Metal. They have rocked the whole world for 30 years and still running wild. Plus, they are one of my Favorite Bands of all time.


Now since the world might be at its end stage, so I’ve decided to make an Artwork Dedicated to one of those Legends as a Tribute like last week.

Well, This week is strongly dedicated to the Band called Anthrax. Just getting more and more into Thrash Metal. You’ll might think that its just another Thrash Metal Bands like – Metallica and Megadeth. Technically, yes all of them belong to same genre. But still they are kinda different from the other two.

What makes them different, is their theme, on that basis they have different style of lyrics and music tunes compared with Metallica and Megadeth. In simpler words, Megadeth and Metallica songs are based on War-Based Theme, while Anthrax songs are based on some kinda Madness-Based theme. They sound a bit different when it comes to guitar solo. But in the end, it’s all thrash metal.

I love most of the Anthrax Songs, but there are some favorites like – Deathrider, Gung-Ho, Indians, Antisocial, Metal Thrashing Mad, Got The Time, I’m The Law, In My World and Fight’em Until You Can’t.

Coming back to my artwork. It’s just like what I’ve made previously. The Artwork of logo this legendary band has been drawn with Ball-point pen on an A4 Sheet, along with the names of their famous songs (around 50-60 I guess), written in (my personal favorite) Graffiti Tags.

Take a look on this collaboration fellas.

  1. A fucking awesome subgenre of heavy metal music, one of the extreme metal subgenres that is characterised by high speed riffing and aggression. Thrash metal songs typically use fast, percussive and low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work. Possibly the four biggest bands in the Thrash Metal genre include: Slayer, Megadeth, Metallica, and Anthrax. Thrash guitar solos are almost exclusively played at high speed, as they are usually characterized by shredding, and use techniques such as sweep picking, legato phrasing, alternate picking, string skipping, and two-hand tapping. Thrash lead guitarists are rooted in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement. The speed and pacing of the songs is what defines thrash metal. The music tends to have a visceral, propellant feel to it due to its drumming style, most commonly utilizing the snare drum on the 1/2 beat, or the 2nd and 4th beats of the measure. Frantic bass drum use is also common. Thrash drummers often use two bass drums. Some thrash drummers are revered as some of the “best drummers in rock music”.

  2. Very cool progressive power/thrash metal; there are some jokes along the way (“Melanin”), but the rest is pretty hard-hitting. Imagine Heir Apparent or Lethal mixed with a good doze of thrash, and you’ll get the picture. In the longer songs (“Reworked”) the guys get carried away, introducing a lot of influences, and create the impression that they would never end the song; but these moments are not too many, and the rest is quite enjoyable, still with the presence of various influences, sometimes outside the metal spectre.

  3. The album simply goes through the motions of thrash metal, using tired riffs and stupid lyrics and calling it a “thrash metal revival.” The artwork also shows just how stupid and mindless the band thinks fans of thrash metal are. We party hard and thats all we do apparently. Real thrash bands can muster some intelligent thought and definitely play on brilliant riffs and this band doesn’t see that, can’t do that, or won’t do that. Whatever. Fuck ’em.

  4. The best thrash metal “break up” song of all time. The solo is just amazing, it leaves you breathless. Truly a masterpiece. Nothing but goodness.
