After the release of their debut album, 1984's FISTFUL OF METAL, New York City thrash specialists Anthrax went through their first lineup change. Out went vocalist Neil Turbin and bassist Dan Lilker, and in came their replacements, Joey Belladonna and Frank Bello. Although Anthrax remained true to their heavy metal roots musically, Belladonna's voice followed in more of a melodic rock vein (a la Journey, etc.). Instead of introducing the new lineup on a full-length release, Anthrax opted for an EP, entitled ARMED AND DANGEROUS.
The '90s CD reissue of this album adds two tracks--"Soldiers of Metal" and "Howling Furies"--to its original five. The title track, demonstrated that the band could compose tuneful metal in addition to thrash, reappeared only a few months later on the band's next full-length effort, SPREADING THE DISEASE. Also featured are a pair of studio tracks only available here--"Raise Hell" and a cover of The Sex Pistols' "God Save the Queen"--plus live versions of the older compositions "Metal Thrashing Mad" and "Panic." While ARMED AND DANGEROUS wasn't as substantial as such future releases as AMONG THE LIVING, it showed that Anthrax was back in business.
