Anthrax: Anthems

Anthrax has a great time showing their chops as classic rockers and this might be surprising if they hadn't already covered even less likely acts like the Smiths and the Temptations.

AC/DC: Live at River Plate

There are never any surprises with an AC/DC album, live or otherwise. Stripped-back, belting hard rock is what you'd expect, and that's exactly what you get on Live at River Plate.
