First re-release of the fourth full-length album by the legendary American Thrash Metal band.
Unlike "Fistful Of Metal", "Spreading The Disease" or "Among The Living" this album doesn't have so much fast guitar riffs. There are still good guitar riffs though some is a little repetitive to. "State of Euphoria" is not a miss and is one of their most underrated albums. The guitars have a very filling sound on here. At this time, most Thrash albums had guitar's which had a kind of flat sound. Like it was there, but it was just missing something. This album basically used all the space in the studio to get the sound right. The bass is hardly ever heard but when it is, it's very Steve Hariss-esque. The drums are very tight on this album, as well. On the last 3 albums the drums were a little loose and rehearsed, but on here they are tightened down incredibly.
Although the album contains some of what would become Anthrax's best known songs such as "Antisocial" and "Be All, End All", critical reception was lukewarm. The album failed to live up to the expectations, commercial and otherwise, set by the band's previous releases, “Among the Living” and the “I'm the Man” (EP).
The album reached #30 on the Billboard 200 chart in late 1988 and was certified Gold by the RIAA.
Anyway, it's a great album and a Anthrax classic that every fan should have!
