Another solid entry on the trio's stellar resume
COMMENTS:
Umpteenth album for the Canadian pioneers Anvil arrives in 'Pounding the Pavement'. It's cemented in the signature blocky grooves and spacious percussion. It's hard not to like, with fun cuts like "Nanook of the North", "Rock that Shit" and opener "Bitch in the Box". Production is handled by Jorg Uken, an extreme guy (and drummer) that has worked with the very non-Anvil type acts in God Dethroned, Sinister, and Dew-Scented among others. I think superior sound and Robb's fills for eternity make this another solid entry on the trio's stellar resume.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Raven, The Rods, Tank
