Anvil! The Story of Anvil trailer online
There's a trailer online for a film that a number of people have been pointing me to, Anvil! The Story of Anvil is a film about the people behind a rock band called Anvil, a band who were once so big they are credited as being an inspiration to bands such as Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, and yet they are nothing compared to these bands.
Through mismanagement and many other poor decisions, the band just have never experienced the fame that they should have, and after a terrible European tour filled with disaster, they start recording their thirteenth album and the cameras are rolling.
Here's the blurb for Anvil! The Story of Anvil to give you the official take on the story.
"At fourteen years old, best friends Lips and Robb Reiner made a pact to rock together forever. Their band Anvil, hailed as the "demi-gods of Canadian metal," influenced a musical generation including Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax. Though Anvil never made it, they never stopped playing or believing. Following a calamitous European tour, Lips and Robb, now well into their fifties, set off to record their thirteenth album, "This is Thirteen," in one last attempt to fulfill their boyhood dream."
However the best bet is simply to get in front of the trailer and have a look, even this short run of clips will have you running a gamut of emotions - you'll laugh at them, with them, and be shaking your head amazed at the complete polarity of their story.
