Docu can make anything happen. In the case of Anvil, Canadian speed metal band of the first hour and pioneer of greats like Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax and Metallica, "The Story Of Anvil" 2008 came at exactly the right time. At that time the band was cancering completely unsuccessfully, musically mostly smiled at, but with unshakeable staying power through the deepest metal underground. Due to the positive resonances, the anvils not only got creatively back on the curve, but were also able to climb up the ladder of success a little bit. Two years ago "Juggernaut Of Justice" was the name of the quite remarkable "Comeback" album, but it is in no way inferior to "Hope In Hell". All Anvil trademarks are present: Pudel-Lips' simpel-rockʼnʼrolliges Riffing, Rob's tight drum hurricane, as well as wonderfully simple Mitgröhl texts. The musical palette can be limited by the cornerstones Midtempo-Groover ("Hope In Hell"), Speeder ("Eat Your Words") and Deep-Purple-Memory-Rocker ("Through With You"). Naive, charming, Anvil!
