ANVIL Reveal Hope In Hell Cover Art, Tracklisting

March 5th, 2013
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. It’s a little as if we’d enlisted Steve Harris,” enthuses guitarist/vocalist Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow, who composed the whole album together with drummer Robb Reiner.

“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.”

ANVIL

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Anvil is a Canadian heavy metal band formed originally in Toronto in mid 70’s. Anvil’s debut album HARD’N HEAVY was released in 1979 followed by classic METAL ON METAL in 1982 which is their most successful album to date. They have released fourteen studio albums, including the latest JUGGERNAUT OF JUSTICE (2011). Although Anvil was never a big commercial success they have been cited as having influenced many notable heavy metal groups like Metallica and Anthrax. In 2008 Anvil was the subject of documentary film ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL. Upon its release, the film garnered critical acclaim from many major publications, and has since brought the band renewed recognition, including opening slot with AC/DC’s on their BLACK ICE tour. The band has also done appearances at many major heavy metal festivals, including Download, Swedenrock and Loud Park. Anvil is back and when the band visited in Finland on last August to play in Porisphere festival it was time to sit down with bands founding member Lips and Robb Reiner and discuss about various Anvil topics.

Heavy T.O. 2011

July 28th, 2011

Heavy TO

Heavy T.O.

July 23-24, 2011

Review and pics by Monika Deviat

 

On July 23rd and 24th, 10 000 metalheads descended upon Downsview Park in Toronto ON for Heavy T.O. The two day festival took place the same weekend as Heavy MTL. This was the third year for Heavy MTL and its success from right from the first year prompted MTL organizers Daniel Glick and Nick Farkas to team up with Live Nation to create Heavy T.O. Two stages had bands playing right after each other, about 11 per day. Heavy T.O. sponsor, Jägermeister had a tent area set up with games and were hosting some of the autograph sessions. Certain bands like Megadeth and Slayer had line-ups of over a hundred people waiting to get signatures from their favorite musicians.

July 2nd, 2011

The Canadian bands Anvil (who were forced to cancel their appearence at the cruise in April this year) and Helix,reunited with all now living members of their classic line-up, are both confirmed to appear at the Sweden Rock Cruise. The ship Tallink Silja Galaxy departs from Stockholm, Sweden on October 6th and makes a round trip to Turku, Finland to return to Stockholm 23 hours later.

Four more bands are to be booked and we hope to present their names soon.

Testament cancelled

Testament whom we earlier announced, have unfortunately announced that they are cancelling their entire European tour, which includes the show at the Sweden Rock Cruise. We are working on finding a replacement and hope to present one soon.

Anvil (Can)

Anvil1.gif

It took Canada’s Anvil 30 years to become an overnight sensation. The documentary “Anvil! The story of Anvil” was one of the most talked-about phenomena of 2009, not only among metalheads. Anvil were best known for “Metal on metal” (1982) and “Forged in fire” (1983), two classic heavy metal albums influential to the likes of Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax. Then their career stalled and for many years the band was all but forgotten. Yet the optimism of dynamic duo Steve “Lips” Kudlow (vocals/guitar) and Robb Reiner (drums) never faltered, which made a huge impression on those who watched and loved the documentary. Triggered by the renewed public interest, Anvil have released their best album since their halcyon days, “Juggernaut of justice”. As a live act, they have nothing left to prove – the only difference is that more people than ever come to the shows.



Helix (Can)

Helix1.gif

In the mid 80s, Helix were one of the most popular hard-rock acts in Sweden. These Canucks’ biggest hit “Rock you”, from 1984, remains a singalong anthem at heavy metal-parties nationwide. Contrary to popular belief these days, Helix was no one-hit wonder. Songs like “Gimme gimme good lovin”, “Heavy metal love” and “Deep cuts the knife” also bear the name of classics – the latter is found on an album that made #1 in Sweden, namely “Long way to heaven” (1985). The last time Helix took the stage in Sweden was at Sweden Rock Festival in 2005. This time it’s even more special. There has been a reunion of Helix classic lineup: Brian Vollmer (vocals), Brent Doerner (guitar), Daryl Gray (bass), Greg “Fritz” Hinz (drums), plus Kaleb Duck (guitar) in lieu of the late great Paul Hackman. You will hear the both raunchy and melodic hard rock of Helix presented in exactly the proper fashion – prepare to get floored by a true 80s knuckle sandwich.

ANVIL Live in St. Johns, NL

Anvil is still riding high atop the tidal wave of success generated from their documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil. For the first time in their 30+ year history, the band is doing a coast to coast Canadian tour. The tour kicked off here in St. John’s, marking the band’s first ever performance here. Shortly after tickets went on sale, they sold out prompting the promoters to secure a second night for the band (the only place on the Canadian tour to get two nights). While the first night was sold out, the second was still packed and the crowd reaction for the second night was even more over the top with much more intense headbanging and moshing.  It’s a weekend of metal like this that makes me proud to be from the metal starved shores of Newfoundland.
