Anvil
  • Metal/ Thrash
  • Toronto-based metal band, formed in 1981 after originally being called Lips.

    Current lineup features Robb Reiner - drums, Steve Kudlow - lead vocals/ guitar and Glenn Five - bass/ backing vocals.

    Their career has been beset with poor promotion, a loyal fan-base and the requisite sense of humour, captured in the 2008 documentary film "Anvil! The Story Of Anvil".

    Their most 'successful' release was the 1987 album "Strength Of Steel" although many fans veer towards their opening trio of albums, including the debut 1981 album, "Hard N Heavy". Other albums include: "Metal on Metal" (1982), "Forged in Fire" (1983), "Pound for Pound" (1988), "Worth the Weight" (1992), "Plugged in Permanent" (1996), "Absolutely No Alternative" (1997), "Speed of Sound" (1999), "Plenty of Power" (2001), "Still Going Strong" (2002), "Back to Basics" (2004), "This Is Thirteen" (2007), "Juggernaut of Justice" (2011), "Hope in Hell" (2013), "Anvil Is Anvil" (2016), plus 2018's: "Pounding the Pavement".
