Overview

The album, produced by the band and Dave Jerden, includes the singles, "Only", "Black Lodge", "Room for One More" and "Hy Pro Glo". This album marked a revision in the sound of the band, with the departure of lead vocalist Joey Belladonna and the introduction of grunge influences (Dave Jerden was the producer of Alice in Chains). The album debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 charts, Anthrax's highest ever chart position. Sound of White Noise was certified gold by the RIAA.

The album's closing track "This Is Not an Exit" is directly based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel American Psycho. The lyrics through the song are in narrative towards the main character in the book, Patrick Bateman.[citation needed] This song also includes a sample from the 1991 movie "My Girl".[citation needed] A music video was produced for the song "Black Lodge", featuring actress Jenna Elfman in one of her first film appearances. The Black Lodge is a fictional location in the popular early 1990s television series Twin Peaks. Anthrax was able to persuade Twin Peaks' score conductor Angelo Badalamenti to help compose the song.

Notes

  • The song "Black Lodge" was omitted from the vinyl release due to time.
  • Anthrax also contributed a song from these sessions called "Poison My Eyes" to the Last Action Hero soundtrack.
  • The title "Hy Pro Glo" is a reference to a television commercial for Purina Hi Pro Dog Food.
