Anvil - 1982 - Metal on metal

Post by The ripper on Tue 9 Aug - 6:29






Released 15 april 1982

In 1982, Anvil were one of the “heaviest” bands around.  
With their LP Metal On Metal, the Canadian band positioned themselves at the forefront of metal’s cutting edge.  
At times speedy, at times thrashy (this was before “thrash”, mind you), and at times hit-you-over-the-head heavy,
Metal On Metal delivers a knuckle sandwich to your ugly mug.  

The title track is probably Anvil’s most famous tune, an anthemic bludgeoning delivered with endearingly dumbness.  
Anvil’s technical dexterity is on full-display on scorchers such as Mothra, Jackhammer, and 666.  
Robb Reiner’s drumming deserves some real accolades here.  
The album’s lyrics are, for the most part, fairly lighthearted.  
Vocalist Steve “Lips” Kudlow has a goofy charm that comes across as fun, sometimes cliché, and maybe even a bit cheesy
(to those way-too-serious types).  
But make no mistake, Anvil had the chops.  
They were also sincere in their metal lust.

Back in 1982, only Raven could rival Anvil in terms of fusing velocity-metal and technical ability.  
And Anvil were not as off-the-rails insane as Raven.  
(Forget Venom, they weren’t even in the same league as these guys).  
Anvil was definitely metal on metal, and more metal than you.
