The Nervous Breakdown recently conducted an interview with John Bush of ARMORED SAINT, who talks about his time in ANTHRAX, where he was their lead singer from 1992 to 2005.
It fits importantly. I was in Anthrax for a long time. From ’92 to 2005. Basically, thirteen years. We made four records of original material. I did a lot of touring. And I think we made some really cool albums and some cool music. It was a change in the way things were going. The face of rock and roll was changing, and I think Anthrax embraced that and I’m proud of that. For a long time it seemed like we were a band that tried to convince people that we were the same band. But in a weird way, I think we did morph a little bit in the ’90s and grew and went with the times, and in retrospect, I think it was the right decision. You know, “Sound of White Noise” was a record that sounded advanced. It sounded like an Anthrax record in the future, and I think it was a cool thing to do, and I think it was the right thing to do, for the band at the time. I’m proud of everything I did with the band. I think we made some great music. It was hard because Anthrax was such an important band in the ’80s and made their mark in the ’80s and it was kind of difficult to compete with yourself in a weird way. I think it was hard for the other guys — let alone myself — to try and overcome what the band did in the ’80s and say that this music was equally important. But I think it is and I think in time people will give it a more objective viewpoint. But, yeah, I’m really proud of all my time in Anthrax. I think we did some great stuff.
