Video Clip For New Song “Last Before The End” Posted By Game Over

Italian thrash metal heroes Game Over posted a video clip for the first single for the upcoming release “Claiming Supremacy,” which drops on on November 17th via Scarlet Records. Check out the music video for “Last Before the End” in the playerb elow.

Inspired by the classic Bay Area thrash metal scene of the 80’s, Game Over mixes those influences with modern sounds and a very distinctive personality. “Claiming Supremacy” is the perfect combination of the band’s furious riffing, hardcore attitude and classic metal influences, with very obscure lyrics and, of course, those anthemic choruses that fans recognize as a band trademark.

Overall the album is heavier, faster and ruthless than ever. Lyrics vary from B-movie scenarios to social-political themes, science fiction, mythology and history. The album has been mixed and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust), who has previously worked with Midnight, SunnO))), Poison Idea, Integrityand many more. “Claiming Supremacy,” which will be released in Japan by Marquee, will also be available in a vinyl version limited to 500 copies.

The track list for the album is as follows:

1. Onward To Blackness
2. Two Steps Into The Shadows
3. Last Before The End
4. My Private Nightmare
5. Blessed Are The Heretics
6. Eleven
7. Broken Trails
8. Shattered Souls
9. Lysander
10. Show Me What You Got
11. Metal Thrashing Mad (Anthrax cover) (Japanese Bonus Track)

Anthrax Announces “Spreading The Disease” 30th Anniversary Release

On November 20, three decades after its October 30, 1985 debut, Universal will release a special 30th anniversary edition of Anthrax’s classic “Spreading The Disease,” the band’s second studio album and the one that served as the then-budding thrash band’s breakthrough.

“We wanted to do something special for our fans to celebrate the anniversary of ‘Spreading the Disease,'” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante. “We took the idea to Universal a couple of years ago and have been very hands-on with them, creating this special, deluxe edition that we think our fans will really like.”

In addition to the original album’s nine tracks, the two-disc anniversary edition features previously unreleased bonus material including Joey Belladonna’s 1984 demo recording of the song “Medusa,” nine rhythm tracks from Anthrax recordings also done in 1984 – no vocals, no overdubs or sweetening, just drums, some guitar, a bit of bass, showing the songs in their naked, most basic form – and eight live songs from Anthrax’s 1987, first-ever concert in Japan, held at Tokyo’s Sun Plaza.

“‘STD’ was our first real record on a major label,” said Benante. “We were on a roll with that album, and we wanted to perform those songs as close to the album versions as possible. I think the performances show the excitement of a young band that was on its way, so we wanted to have them on this reissue.”

Produced by Anthrax with Carl Canedy, the 44-minute Spreading the Disease marked the first Anthrax album to feature singer Belladonna and bassist Frank Bello (joining drummer Benante and guitarists Dan Spitz & Scott Ian), and set into motion the core elements that would become the essence of Anthrax. In addition, the album also introduced the Anthrax writing partnership of Benante and Ian (that eventually evolved into Benante, Ian and Bello).

The track listing for the 30th anniversary edition will be as follows:

Disc One
A.I.R.
Lone Justice
Madhouse
S.S.D./Stand or Fall
The Enemy
Aftershock
Armed and Dangerous
Medusa
