Like Metallica and Megadeth, Anthrax was responsible for the emergence of speed and thrash metal; combining the speed and fury of hardcore with the guitars and vocals of heavy metal, they helped create a new subgenre of heavy metal.
Unlike Metallica, they had the good sense to temper their often serious music with a healthy dose of humor and realism.
Their first album, Fistful of Metal, included original singer Neil Turbin and featured the now classic song, "Metal Thrashing Mad." It also introduced fans to this new brutal style of metal.
Their second album, Armed And Dangerous, saw singer Joey Belladonna and bassist Frank Bello join the lineup. Belladonna helped take the band farther away from conventional metal cliches and Anthrax arguably became the leaders of speed metal.
