Soulmates Lips and Robb Reiner are back as Anvil, and their latest offering is simply entitled Anvil Is Anvil. Rounding out the 3-piece is new bassist Chris Robertson, making 5 different bassists over the years (if anyone’s counting). Post-movie and especially beginning with Juggernaut Of Justice, Anvil has brought their sound and song structures to a much higher level. They’re still as traditional as Traditional Metal gets, but the last few Anvil albums have had more depth, clarity, and punch … and Anvil Is Anvil continues that trend. Too many tracks here become overly political, but overall this is an enjoyable release.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
