ANVIL Offer Once-In-A-Lifetime PledgeMusic Fan Opportunities

August 27th, 2015

image001
Canadian cult metal act ANVIL is back! Striving to bypass the labels that have stood between the band and fans for years, ANVIL is creating their new record Anvil Is Anvil with a direct-to-fan approach in mind. Recently, the band teamed up with PledgeMusic to assure that fan connection, but unlike other crowdsourcing campaigns put forth by bands in the hopes of amassing a recording budget, ANVIL’s campaign strives to do so while truly providing fans with unique, once-in-a-lifetime experiences and personal, one-on-one opportunities that they will never forget.

ANVIL’s 2009 movie documentary, The Story Of Anvil made them famous the world over. Their albums are considered landmarks among a musical genre. Their 2011 release, Juggernaut Of Justice, and their 2013 release, Hope In Hell, were powerful and unrelenting.

Anvil Is Anvil will be their most potent yet, and feature guitarist/vocalist Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow, drummer Robb Reiner, and new bassist Chris Robertson in top form. Featuring no concessions to short-lived trends and no modern frills, the brand new ANVIL record will feature traditional metal at its finest with massive classic rock elements – a sound that ANVIL fans love and deserve.

ANVIL and PledgeMusic are offering fans a chance to get up close and personal with the band, access exclusive content and be a part of a truly unique fan-to-band experience. With every pre-order, pledgers will get the AccessPass which will give them exclusive looks at behind the scenes videos, photos and messages from the band. Fans will also have several once in a lifetime opportunities to purchase:

·         In person or Skype drum lesson with Robb
·         In person or Skype guitar lesson with Lips
·         Guest back-up vocal appearance on the new record
·         One of Lips’ amps
·         The opportunity to attend a live rehearsal
·         A day in the studio with the band
·         Signed limited edition CD with bonus tracks
·         Signed drum head
·         Exclusive Pledger T-shirt
·         AMPU (Anvil Metal Pounders Union) deluxe lifetime membership and signed CD
·         Signed set list
·         Signed drumsticks
·         Handwritten lyric sheets

To pledge, please visit www.pledgemusic.com/anvil

Guitarist and vocalist Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow  states “We are proud to announce to our fans that they can keep in personal touch with the band and be directly involved in the process of creating the next ANVIL album. This will be the first time that we’ve used a pre-sales platform and we are fully confident that getting closer to our fans through making the album will take the making of it and the final album to somewhere fantastic. Considering that almost anyone aware of ANVIL knows our long and sometimes brutal history, we’re hoping you would be honoured to help and prove us right in our belief in you… and we promise another top notch ANVIL recording that we can enjoy for many years into the future.”

From Hell’s Heart: Top 6 songs about metal!

May 7th, 2015

From Hells Heart

From Hell’s Heart:
What are the top 6 songs about METAL?

This week we reflect upon songs that are about the very thing we all love – heavy metal.  Typically, these songs have the word “metal” somewhere in their title. Some may not, but for our purposes, we’ve excluded any songs where the title/topic is “rock”.  As much as “Long Live Rock n’ Roll” is an awesome song, or as much as there are other killer songs using the more generic term “rock”, it is not considered here. So here’s what we came up with…

Anvil dumps another bassist; replacement announced

August 6th, 2014

ANVIL have parted ways with bassist Sal Italiano and have replaced him with Chris Robertson. ANVIL frontman Steve “Lips” Kudlow  told   M.E.A.T.’s Drew Masters “Chris has actually been in the ANVIL camp for some time now, having been both their rehearsal bassist, as well as part of their road crew.” LIPS also stated that he’s “glad the band is, once again, all Canadian — that is the heart and soul of Anvil”. Chris becomes the 5th bassist to be in the band. ANVIL’s fourth bassist, Sal Italiano, joined the band as the replacement for Glenn Gyorffy (a.k.a. Glenn Five or G5) in January 2013.

Fan-filmed video footage of ANVIL’s July 25 performance at the Headbangers Open Air festival in Brande-Hörnerkirchen, Germany — featuring Robertson on bass — can be seen below.

ANVIL - Hope In Hell

ANVIL – Hope In Hell

Canadian metal band ANVIL will release their new album, Hope In Hell, on May 28th in North America, May 27th in Europe, and May 24th in Germany via SPV / Steamhammer. The 13-song effort will be available in four different formats: as a limited-edition digipak including two bonus tracks, jewel case CD, double gatefold colored vinyl LP, and as a download.

The artwork and tracklisting can be found below:

 

‘Hope In Hell’
‘Eat Your Words’
‘Through With You’
‘The Fight Is Never Won’
‘Pay The Toll’
‘Flying’
‘Call Of Duty’
‘Badass Rock N Roll’
‘Time Shows No Mercy’
‘Mankind Machine’
‘Shut The Fuck Up’
‘Hard Wired’ (bonus track)
‘Fire At Will’ (bonus track)

These are the first cuts featuring Anvil‘s new bassist Sal Italiano. “We’re really happy with Sal, his style is powerful and amazingly imaginative.

“What we do is totally timeless,” says Anvil’s frontman. “We’ve never tried to change our sound or experiment with trends and fashions. We live in our own world and have maintained our individuality and own identity.”

Hope In Hell was produced by Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, AIRBOURNE, ALICE COOPER) at the NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California, and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, SEPULTURA).

In live news, Anvil will play the Encore Event Center in Freehold, NJ on May 11th.

ANVIL Tribute Album In The Works

April 7th, 2012

Skol Records is putting together the first-ever “A Tribute To Anvil” compilation, to be released in early 2013 as a deluxe limited CD and LP, with a thick booklet and exclusive front cover artwork. The album will be produced by Bart Gabriel, who — in addition to helming albums by such bands as JACK STARR’S BURNING STARR, CRYSTAL VIPER, LONEWOLF and SACRED STEEL — has produced the “A Tribute To Cirith Ungol”, “A Tribute To Metalucifer” And “A Tribute To Sabbat” compilations, as well as several other cover songs which later landed on tribute albums to such acts as W.A.S.P., ANGEL WITCH, MANILLA ROAD, WARLOCK and RUNNING WILD.

Commented Gabriel: “This will be a real tribute, a really high-quality release, because ANVIL deserve to have one. I realize it won’t be a bestseller, but all those who have seen ‘Anvil! The Story Of Anvil’ movie will understand what’s the driving force behind this project.”

He added, “I’m one of those guys who got inspired by ANVIL to continue, to follow my dreams, to never give up. And I know there are many, many bands around who feel like the movie is about them as well. It’s all about positive energy, and I’m truly honored that the project was approved and blessed by ANVIL members, [which is what] makes it even more special!”

“Anvil! The Story of Anvil” was named one of 2009’s best documentaries by a slew of film critics associations across the continent, including critics in Chicago, San Francisco, Toronto, and Las Vegas, as well as the International Documentary Association, the Online Film Critics Society, and the National Society of Film Critics. It also made the year-end Top 10 lists in publications such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, and Village Voice.

IRON MAIDEN Cover Band Bassist Joins ANVIL

January 18th, 2012

Sal Italiano, a member of the IRON MAIDEN tribute band LIVE AFTER DEATH, has joined veteran Canadian metallers ANVIL, replacing recently departed bassist Glenn Gyorffy (aka Glenn Five).

Glenn Five recently announced his departure from the band, citing creative differences.

Mohsen Fayyazi from Metal Shock Finland has issued an exclusive interview with Anvil’s Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow, in which he discusses Glenn Five’s split from the band. An excerpt follows:

Q: With the recent news of Glenn Five’s departure, can you update me on the current situation in Anvil as you are touring the US soon?

A: “We hired an old friend to do the tour and are currently working with a new improved bassist. There was no major issue in fixing this at all and in fact everything was sorted out within a few hours of Glenn departing. Glenn tried to make it difficult by leaving without proper notice but we’ve been preparing for this for quite sometime. This did end up for the better as it is a huge improvement with our new guy both musically as well as personally.”

Q: There is a point in Anvil history that I couldn’t find any clue… in 1983, you signed a contract with David Krebs, but he suddenly changed his mind and stopped returning phone calls and did not get the band a major label recording contract, I’d like to know why? And what happened during that time to you?

A: “There are many unanswered questions concerning why. David had little or no knowledge of metal music. He managed AEROSMITH and thought we were a great opener, but beyond that he couldn’t find us a deal without including our first three albums in a deal. The company Attic refused to license or release those recordings in the US. This made it impossible for David to go forward with us. He pulled us out of the contract with Attic and left us to die or what ever!! We wrote Strength of Steel and recorded it on our own and released it through Metal Blade. Unfortunately this was 4 years after Forged In Fire which made the album three years too late. We struggled and did it on our own from that time until we began making the movie in 2005.”

REPORT AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

The British NWOBHM legends, Saxon, released their 19th studio album CALL TO ARMS in May 2011 and they have been touring heavily across the globe. Although the band had been annual visitors to Finland, they now played their first show in Helsinki in four years! The support band for this leg of tour was Canadian metal band Anvil. It seems that there’s a great demand for these classic bands in Finland as this show sold out with the 1000 person capacity reached right after tickets came on sale.
