ANVIL To Record New Album In October

Canadian metal legends ANVIL will enter Soundlodge studios in Rhauderfehn in the northwest of Germany this fall to begin recording their new album for a 2020 release. Guitarist/vocalist Steve "Lips" Kudlow told Heavy New York about the band's plans for the follow-up to 2018's "Pounding The Pavement": "We're going in in October to record in Germany, in the same place with the same producers and everything as the last album. And we anticipate it to be absolutely amazing. From what I can tell, it's very much another ANVIL album. We haven't lost our direction at all, on any level. I know that it has the best fast stuff that we've ever done, and the best slow stuff, so that's kind of a good thing. So there is relatable stuff that is attached to our 'Motormount', our '666' and our 'Forged In Fire' and our 'Metal On Metal' — there's stuff still attached to those original formats of songs, which is what makes ANVIL ANVIL. So I think that the fans will be particularly most delighted. Anybody who hated us before will still hate us, and quite frankly, I don't give a shit. [Laughs]"

ANVIL, a Toronto-based group, was formed in 1978 by childhood friends Kudlow and Robb Reiner (drums). Both came from Jewish families and had been playing music together since their teens. ANVIL is considered to have been an influence on many metal bands, including METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER and ANTHRAX.

Though initially a four-piece band, ANVIL's current lineup includes Kudlow, Reiner and bassist Chris Robertson.

ANVIL gained popularity and new fans since the 2008 theatrical documentary, "Anvil: The Story Of Anvil", which is currently available on Netflix.
