Canadian heavy metal band Anvil has been name checked by the likes of Metallica, who sites the band as an influence. The band has been toiling at their work since the mid-70's, and have remained mostly underground, until recently, when the documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil started drawing comparisons to This is Spinal Tap, and was picked up for air by VH1.
The good news is that Anvil are all real, and the better news is that two of the members of the band, Steve 'Lips' Kudlow and Robb Reiner are going to be on Attack of the Show today to talk with Kevin Pereira about their tumultuous history, and where they fit in the history of heavy metal. This is one of those can't miss moments that is likely to deliver the maximum heaviosity you've been waiting for. Don't miss it.
