Anthrax releases Persistence of Time

Persistence of Time is the fifth studio album by American heavy metal band Anthrax.

The album was released in 1990 by Megaforce Worldwide/Island Entertainment.

The album includes the singles, "Got the Time" (a Joe Jackson cover) and "In My World" (which was performed by the band on an episode of Married...With Children.)

Anthrax returned to the studio in the fall of 1989 with Mark Dodson (who produced the previous album, State of Euphoria) to start work on their fifth album. Recording of the album was difficult, with a large structure fire causing the band to lose more than $100,000 worth of gear and their recording studio in January 1990. Following their personal disaster the band moved to a different studio in late February of that year to finish work on the album.
