Anthrax and Hillrock Distillery smashed it with their limited run of “Evil Twin I” Rye Whiskey in 2020, but it sold out as expected. Now the follow-up to their now sold-out, award-winning, high-end signature rye whiskey is here. Today Anthrax’s Scott Ian introduces “Evil Twin II,” the band’s just-released signature rye whiskey that shows off its maple, cinnamon, clove, and black pepper notes. “This is a delicious rye,” said Scott. “It’s smooth, it has a maple tone, but not sweet, it’s got a bite!” Orders can be placed now at Mash and Grape. Place your order soon to get it in time for Christmas! Watch the video with Scott and order below.
Anthraxhas released a new lyric video and single for a brand new song, ‘Evil Twin’. You can watch the lyric video at this link or below:
‘Evil Twin’ comes off of the long-awaited new Anthrax album, coming in early 2016 from Megaforce in North America and Nuclear Blast in the Europe/UK. The track is also available digitally, and can be purchased via Apple Music, iTunesand Amazon.
Charlie Benante comments on the thrashiness of ‘Evil Twin’:
“Yeah, that opening riff is really evil. We had done a lot of touring with Death Angel and Exodus, so I was in a really thrashy state of mind when I starting writing the riffs for that song. I think along with Scott’s lyrics and Frank’s melodies, we came up with a really great, old school thrash metal feel.”
The pointed lyrics of the track denounces the self-righteous religious extremists who spread their bloody terror under the guise of a Holy War.
You represent your discontent
Slaughtering the innocent
You’re no martyrs
Scott Ian comments on the lyrics of the track:
“I was very affected by the Charlie Hebdo massacre as I have been with all of the shootings that have taken place at schools and movie theatres. I can’t figure out what would cause someone to think that was the right thing to do. ‘I’ll show the world, I’ll make my God happy.’ It’s just such bullshit. I’m not bagging on religion, that’s not my intent, but people who go to that extreme, who feel they have become judge, jury and executioner over their fellow man because you or I don’t believe the same thing they do, I think that’s the ‘Evil Twin’ of humanity. Writing words about that is my only catharsis.”
