Hammerin' the Anvil... its time for some metal on metal so turn it up for the one true hope in hell as ANVIL make their much awaited return to Australia in November this year. "Their 2009 documentary The Story Of Anvil has made them famous the world over, following seemingly endless years of energy-sapping tours de force marked by dismal organizational conditions. Their albums are considered landmarks among a musical genre which is otherwise successively losing its identity. Their recent release, Juggernaut Of Justice (2011), was a powerful and unrelenting thunderbolt of the first order. Now Canadian cult metal act Anvil are back with their new studio recording Hope In Hell. The album presents guitarist/vocalist Steve 'Lips' Kudlow, drummer Robb Reiner and their bassist Sal Italiano in top form, highly dynamic and full of energy from the first to the last note. "We're really proud and already love the new album just as much as our early releases from the beginning of the eighties, because Hope In Hell sounds like Anvil live on stage: natural, honest, unvarnished, never over-produced and straight from the heart." Which is hardly surprising since Hope In Hell was written and recorded following an 18-month world tour which took Anvil around the globe. "We hadn't expected this kind of extensive tour when we brought out Juggernaut Of Justice," Kudlow confesses. "Time just flew by. I could hardly believe it when I found myself in the studio again after the tour, ready to work on the next album. The reactions to Juggernaut Of Justice and the shows had been so positive that we had plenty of ideas and inspiration for new material."
