Anvil! The Story Of Anvil
26 September 2009
Excerpt: I’d like to consider my tastes in music to be fairly eclectic; I’m apt to listen to just about anything that isn’t hip-hop, country or punk/ska. But if you were to ask what my genre of choice would be, the answer comes quickly: metal. More specifically, thrash metal. You see, I’m an unapologetic lover of all things thrash, and I was sure I knew most of the big-time bands that held the crown.
Excerpt: This compelling rockumentary shows the travails of best friends still together in a heavy metal band after 30 years and 13 albums. "Anvil" infuses the reality of playing to empty stadiums with the dream of what might be possible with the right record label. At the start the audience can't help but laugh at these aging, bumbling, rock dudes living the ordinary life.
