Yes, that Anvil. Just when you thought Lips and co. had run their course, the ultimate metal warriors return to fight another day.
Thought they’d sign off on a creative high with 2016’s critically acclaimed Anvil Is Anvil (a record that does what it says on the tin)? Think again.
Pounding The Pavement isn’t on a par with its predecessor but if there was a cash reward for persistence then the Canadian survivors would be multi-millionaires.
Sure, the band’s 17th album sounds like it should have been released 35 years ago but Anvil know their market.
And for anyone still sporting denim over leather with a curly mullet for good measure this is manna from heaven.
