   ANTHRAX - AFTER ALL
After All ©Nico Wobben Live Music Hall - Cologne (D)
March 22nd 2003

I had heard alot about the Belgian band AFTER ALL. They have been around for many years, combining timeless heavy metal with goth, doom, Bay Area thrash etc. etc. The newer material seems to be heavier than the older stuff and their style fitted Anthrax very well. It was a good show that certainly got some response from the German crowd. Singer Piet is a charismatic frontman and his voice helps give the band its own distinctive style. It's just not very powerful and versatile and I fear that it might keep them from reaching the next level. Maybe it's just a matter of taste though. Anyway, a cool set and a killer ending with Metallica-cover "Metal Militia".

John Bush (Anthrax) ©Nico Wobben It had been five years since ANTHRAX released an album, but with "We've Come For You All" they proved they're still alive and kicking. Dressed in t-shirts as on the CD, they kicked off with the first song of that CD, "What Doesn't Die". It was instantly clear that the New Yorkers are as tight and energetic as ever! Frank Bello and Scott Ian ran around like crazy as if it were still the 80's, John Bush was the perfect singer and frontman, just awesome, and the crowd moshed around. I think it was a full house, the atmosphere was great. When the crowd chanted for the band, Bush said "You know there was a time where yelling "Anthrax" in a crowded hall was kinda dangerous...", but luckily the word's just referring to the metalband again as it should be;) John wasn't wearing his "fuck Bush" t-shirt this time, but it was inevitable he'd make some comments about president Bush and his current war in Iraq. The one song that came to mind, he said, was "Warpigs": Blair's a warpig, Bush's a warpig and he talked about how they should be fighting in the desert themselves! We all showed our approval by applauding and cheering, though he ended up saying that his opinion doesn't mean a thing just because he's on a stage - they are entertainers and their opinion was to show us a good time for an hour and a half and let us forget about the awful things that are happening in the rest of Scott Ian (Anthrax) ©Nico Wobben the world. And on with the show.. with an awesome show! In addition to a kick ass performance we got a great setlist! I don't have all the albums from the 90's but I knew most songs and we got treated to more old classics then I expected! The set included songs of all eras like a.o. the aforementioned "What Doesn't Die", "Safe Home", "Nobody Knows Anything", "In My World", "Only", "Fueled", "Inside Out", "Caught In A Mosh", "Got The Time", "Antisocial", "Madhouse", "N.F.L.", "Metal Thrashing Mad" (biggest surprise for me!), "I'm The Man" (just about the only rap I like hehe - starring role for Frank Bello!) and the last encore "Indians" were Bush got a bunch of metalheads on the stage who were wearing colorful Indian headdresses, haha! They danced around and sang along with the band, great finale! Wohsnikufesin!
