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 clich s and Anthrax arguably
became the leaders of speed metal.
