ANVIL - Speed of Sound @256k

Anvil are a Canadian heavy metal band.
The roots of Anvil began in April 1973 in Toronto, when high school friends Steve "Lips" Kudlow and Robb Reiner began playing music together. It was not until 1978 that the first lineup that was to become Anvil was formed: Kudlow (lead vocals, lead guitar), Reiner (drums), Dave Allison (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Ian Dickson (bass). Together they were known as LIPS.
In 1981, the band released an independent album called Hard 'N Heavy. Shortly after they were signed by Attic Records they changed their name to Anvil and the independent album was released by Attic as their debut album. Between 1983 and 1986 there was no activity until 1987 when approached by American label Metal Blade Records. They put out their US debut: Strength Of Steel after a handful of releases there in 1991, Anvil were then picked up by Maximum Records, an independent Canadian label that was formed by Helix's manager-at-the-time William Seip. From 1996 and on they were signed by Hypnotic Records in Canada and Massacre Records in Germany.
The band's history has been documented in the film Anvil! The Story of Anvil. The film has helped Anvil back into the public consciousness and has propelled them to playing several festivals including Glastonbury Festival and Download Festival in 2009.
