Anthrax is known for a somewhat humorous flavor of thrash, they unleashed a streak of very awesome albums in the 80's that were all creative and unique, making quite a name for themselves; thus earning them a spot in the so-called "Big Four". Never has Anthrax penned such powerful and violent lyrics. I docked points for the aforementioned weak song and for the relatively weak guitar playing. Check this out, it's worth your time. 'Persistence of Time' is a fine artifact of its turbulent time before the collapse that many a band, even Anthrax, fell victim to. However, Scott Ian has stepped up to the crease and done just that. Indeed, the seven minute long mid-paced crusher "Keep It In The Family" is more in line with the sort of ground pounding heaviness that Metallica rolled out on "The Frayed Ends Of Sanity" and "The Shortest Straw", and apart from Joey Belladonna's lighter and less gritty vocal approach could pass for a Metallica song. Never before have they written a meaner riff or a more aggressive song. "Gridlock" is painfully weak, and it sounds awkward and forced. While far from terrible, it is a bit too slow and dull, and never really progresses. No problem at all. The production, unlike the aforementioned Metallica album, is a very full and heavy sound, with an extremely prominent bass. Belladonna stuck around for another year or two after, but didn't seem to have as much input on the band's later releases, particularly Attack of the Killer Bs, where he is absent on a fair few tracks, suggesting that there was tension in the band. The fastest song is "Gridlock", not the best one but still a killer.

Other worthy tracks are Belly of the Beast, H8 Red, and Discharge. Is this "Orange/Black Swirl" the standard version? Charlie Benante pulls off his tightest performance of his career filling Persistence with great double kick bass, fills, and hand drumming. If Anthrax worked on Persistence of Time a bit more it could have easily been their magnum opus. Persistence of Time’s production is great mixing ever instrument just write.
Okay, 'Persistence of Time' isn't most aggressive thrash metal (or generally, metal music) out there, but in 1990 this sounded HEAVY. Joey Belladona also performs at his best here, his voice sounds almost perfect for the mood that this album puts off.
Matter of taste. The outcome, as a whole album, is a very organic-sounding thing packed with extremely explosive energy. There are no funny melodies or vibes, and melodiousness is at times missing ('Gridlock' being the clearest example, and also the only throw-away track); this also happens with Joey's vocals, as he was instructed to sound more angry or whatever, hence giving us less melodies. The band had got deeper into business and there was always tomorrow to think about. And with the Blood I Can't Keep "Blood" sounds like there's war in hell and Satan takes his troops to destroy the attacking enemy. This is the album that people know as the last with singer Joey Belladonna until 2011's Worship Music. This album took a while to grow on me, I only picked it up because I saw it was cheap, but honestly this is well worth any kind of money, and I gotta thank my friend for telling me to check this out. Frank Bello has some real presence here, and Charlie's kit has never sounded better. Everything is slowed down significantly, but that doesn't mean the playing is bad. Though usually overshadowed by the catchy and speedy showmanship of Among The Living, the fifth and final classic Anthrax album Persistence Of Time marks the point where the SRB rockets have been dropped and the real space travel begins. In that quote he has summed up his performance here to a T. Of particular note is his bass solo in the Joe Jackson cover Got The Time, where he plays a few taseful lines, being careful not to overdo it. Thrash was pushing forward in quite an exciting way, yet somehow it all went wrong. The tempos are more middle ground this time around. It's basically a metal companion to the Ramones' anti-Reagan anthem 'Bonzo Goes to Bitburg', also despairing over the rising number of apologetics that pollute our air even to this day (search Nizkor Project for the ultimate rebuttal if you ever encounter such vermin). I always has a soft spot for the opening track “Time” but the song was never quite as good in the live environment. His voice also retains some the fire it had in areas of State Of Euphoria and intensifies it, and uses it more often. Never before has Scott Ian's rhythm guitar been more punishing.
Dan Spitz (guitar) - Another one who has improved on all past performances, Spitz takes the style he was working on in State Of Euphoria and takes it to a new level. When concerning production I feel that by todays standards Persistence of Time happens to stand up the best amongst the bands work with Joey Belladonna. The other is the atmosphere to the album. As much as I like 'State...', I feel as though carrying on with the sound they developed on that album would have led to an even drier, simpler album that fans would find even easier to dislike.
