Anvil Is Anvil
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Martin 'Mattes' Pfeiffer (Vanize, Mob Rules, Fatal Embrace) takes the familiar Anvil formula and pushes it to the absolute maximum velocity with a masterful 'German' production. Canada goes completely Teutonic with a punishing rhythm guitar mix that punctuates what these lumpheads have tried to do their whole career – heavy metal for heavy metal fans. While tracks like 'Daggers and Rum' throws a few new tricks in the bag (Pirate Metal), cuts like 'Zombie Apocalypse' are simply the fire in the furnace for the band and its fans. God Bless Anvil.
