ANVIL have entered Dave Grohl’s studio in Los Angeles, CA with producer Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, SLAYER, AIRBOURNE ALICE COOPER) to record their brand new album, Juggernaut Of Justice. A Spring 2011 release on The End Records is expected.
In a 2009 interview with Suite101.com, ANVIL drummer Robb Reiner stated about the group’s forthcoming CD, “It’s going to be the best album we’ve ever done. We’ve invented a new genre; we’ve invented metal-jazz . . . We’ve pioneered something that I believe is going to be revolutionary. I’m a jazz drummer: the world knows that I just happen to be in a metal band. And Lips [guitarist/vocalist Steve Kudlow] listens to a lot of old-time swing jazz these days.” Lips added, “I’ve been getting into Benny Goodman and Gene Krupa, really fast swing. It’s really similar to speed metal, it’s just that it’s done with horns.” Reiner continued, “We play this stuff live right now, and it blows people away beyond anything I’ve ever seen. We’ve innocently created something that’s never been done before.”
