Unitron
Anvil IS Anvil, it's only fitting that a band like Anvil would have such a title. Anvil is Anvil, and they've never really been anything but themselves. Throughout all the changing trends in metal, the band has always stayed true to their own heavy/speed metal sound. They do inject a taste of some different styles when they need it, but the band never really strays from their own path.

Anvil is Anvil is no different, with a kickass blend of classic heavy metal, speed, and a bit of thrash for taste. With opener "Daggers and Rum", the band makes a pirate metal anthem to rival the likes of Running Wild and Alestorm. Lips's vocals are as great as always, his guitar slays like a pirate sword, Robb Reiner's drums pound like cannonballs, and Chris Robertson's bass thumps throughout. Along with the previous track, "Up, Down, Sideways" also ranks among the band's best tracks. Just try to not get addicted to that chorus! "Die for a Lie" is a groovy headbanger, "It's Your Move" is about as classic as it can get, and "Fire on the Highway" is simply yet another killer track.

Featuring an album cover similar in style to those of Surrealist Rene Magritte, Anvil is Anvil does exactly what the title explains. Just like the painter kept his own style for the most part, Anvil keeps on delivering the classic metal goods. If you're an Anvil fan, you'll most likely enjoy this offering. Anvil IS Anvil, and don't you forget it. Hope you found this review helpful, feel free to comment!
