Anthrax - Fistful of Diseases

Anthrax_Live_in_USANearly as much as Metallica or Megadeth, Anthrax was responsible for the emergence of speed and thrash metal. Combining the speed and fury of hardcore punk with the prominent guitars and vocals of heavy metal, they helped create a new subgenre of heavy metal on their early albums. Original guitarists Scott Ian and Dan Spitz were a formidable pair, spitting out lightning-fast riffs and solos that never seemed masturbatory. Unlike Metallica or Megadeth, they had the good sense to temper their often serious music with a healthy dose of humor and realism. After their first album, Fistful of Metal, singer Joey Belladonna and bassist Frank Bello joined the lineup. Belladonna helped take the band farther away from conventional metal clichés, and over the next five albums (with the exception of 1988's State of Euphoria, where the band sounded like they were in a creative straitjacket), Anthrax arguably became the leaders of speed metal. As the '80s became the '90s, they also began to increase their experiments with hip-hop, culminating in a tour with Public Enemy in 1991 and a joint re-recording of PE's classic "Bring the Noise."

Note: I have not a clue at all what the year and location is. I need your help on this one again!!! To me, Live and Alive was the most shameful german bootleg label at that time. It was strickly designed for supermarket shelves. As a result there is not much details about where and when any of the concert was recorded. Production team – led by a guy call Wolfgang –bothered more about economies of scales than providing fans with documented rarities. Most of the tracklisting are alterated compared to the original recordings. In the serie live in USA… I am 200% convinced that a certain number of bootlegs were not recorded in USA. The quality of the item published was usally exellent though.
