AllMusic Review by

A four-disc boxed set, Aftershock: The Island Years, gathers up one of the most successful runs of albums from thrash metal legends Anthrax. Featuring 1985's Spreading the Disease, 1987's Among the Living, 1988's State of Euphoria, and 1990's Persistence of Time, the set follows the initial reign of singer Joey Belladonna as the band ripped their way through the second half of the '80s on Island Records. While this set doesn't have any extras to entice old fans, these are crucial albums for anyone looking to dive deeper into the world of classic thrash.
