One of the bands that set the stage for 80s metal, and keeps going strong is the one and only Anvil. 45+ years, and the band continues to evolve. With the release of their new album One And Only, Anvil returns to the sound and style that set them on fire, and helped them influence many great Heavy Metal acts since.

Metal Express Radio’s Bryce Van Patten had an in-depth discussion with the band’s founder Steve “Lips” Kudlow, where they talked about the evolution of the band over the decades, Anvil as it is now, the new album, and lots of down and gritty details. You won’t want to miss all of the fun in part #1 of their interview. Part II wraps things up, so give them both a listen and like.
