Cover Vs. Original: ICYMI: Anthrax Covers “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas!

In the “All Kings” boxset, thrash-metal legends Anthrax covers “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas.  I’m not quite sure how I feel from this cover, I’ll have to give it a couple more listens, sometimes an original song should be left to the original artist, and I feel that no one can capture the spirit of this classic by Kansas but Kansas.  This song, from an arrangement standpoint, still blows me away after all these years.  I gave my opinion.  Tell me, do you feel that Anthrax did Kansas justice?  Let us know in the comments below!

The vision that I have for this site was that I was getting weary of sites that evolve from the original message to what I refer to as "tabloid magazine stand at the grocery store checkouts" kind of sites. My heart is with the underground bands and for the bands/artists that strive to hit that dream, and they spend thousands of dollars on equipment just to play a $100 show!
