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).
