Via a recent conversation with MetalSucks, band bassist Frank Bello speaks to the Anthrax album he would love to go back and update.
For those of us who adore the thrash act, we have our personal favorite(s) records from Anthrax; but when asked about which Anthrax album he wishes to fix up, Frank picks a big fan favorite.
So what Anthrax album does Frank wish he could go back and update? Well, we will let him tell you for himself. Per Anthrax bassist Frank Bello:
“Believe it or not, it would probably be State of Euphoria. I know a lot of people love that record, and we do, too. But there wasn’t much time to record that album because we were touring so much around that period. And I remember that we would have liked to live with some of those songs featured on State of Euphoria just a little bit more so we could develop them more. But that’s not to say it’s a bad record; we still love it. It’s more that we wanted to put it in the oven a little longer to bake right, if you catch my meaning. I have nothing overly negative to say about the record, and it’s great, but if there’s one I wish I could go back and fine-tune a bit, it would be that one.”
What are your thoughts on Anthrax’s State of Euphoria? Are you happy with how it is, or would you want it updated in any way?
