THE MASTERS OF METAL RETURN!
ANVIL IS EMBARKING ON A SPECIAL LIMITED TOUR OF NORTH AMERICA SUPPORTING THE BAND'S NEW MONUMENT OF METAL 30-YEAR CAREER ANTHOLOGY!!!
If you were to look up the word “perseverance” in the almighty handbook of heavy metal, there may very well be a photo of the Canadian metal outfit Anvil. Since the group's 1981 debut, Hard N’ Heavy, the band – which was co-founded by singer and guitarist Steve “Lips” Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner – has been listed by many as one of the creators of the thrash/speed metal genre (especially on such Chris Tsangarides-produced classics as 1982’s Metal on Metal and 1983’s Forged in Fire).
But due to subsequent bad record deals, bad management, and just plain bad luck, Anvil appeared to take a back seat to a new wave of metal bands – most of which listed the group as a prime influence. However, Anvil has never stopped rocking, and with the arrival of the critically acclaimed and surprise hit film, Anvil! The Story of Anvil (directed by Sacha Gervasi), the group is back where it belongs – at the forefront of heavy metal.
Now, Anvil returns to its roots as an ambassador of heavy metal with the September 29 release of Monument of Metal - The Very Best of Anvil, which collects choice cuts from the band's 30-year career. The cuts on the album were hand-selected by the members of Anvil themselves, designed to show why the likes of Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Guns 'n' Roses, and more have praised Anvil as a true pioneer in the world of metal!
