iTunes Review

Metal on Metal is a seminal text on the emerging thrash metal scene of the '80s. An influence on Metallica, Megadeth, and just about every thrash metal band you'd care to name, Anvil had its fortune twisted and its impact blunted by management snafus that kept the group from recording in its prime. "Metal on Metal" is a classic track: a metal anthem that will outlive the band the way "Breaking the Law" will outrun Judas Priest. The riffs throughout the album are classic, and if the rhythms don't quite match Slayer's speed and intensity, well, it was only 1982, and each year counted back then. Drummer Robb Reiner is often the focus here, adding jackhammer rhythms to "March of the Crabs" and, well, "Jackhammer"; these made him an inspiration to a new generation of metalheads. There's plenty of excitement in the playing and fewer exhibitions of the members' dexterous musicianship. This makes the songs more concise and easier to digest for non-metalheads, yet there's still enough metal to keep the faithful singing Anvil's praises.

夢をあきらめない男達

Anvilが一番輝いていた頃の作品です。Metal On Metal や666が有名ですが、SceneryやTease Me,Please Meも凄くかっこいいです。映画を見てさらに好きになりました。古いといわず是非聴いてもらいたいです。Anvilにもう陽が当たる日は来ないのか!

スラッシュ

自分は若干25歳の若造ヘヴィメタラー。
間違いなくこの作品は、スラッシュメタルの源流と呼べるアルバムだし傑作だ。
3曲目のSTOPMEは、メタリカのwelcomehome,FADETOBLACKの原点だと思う。

Toronto, Canada's Anvil were one of the first North American bands to push the sound and style of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal one step further. Clearly indebted to the likes of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and many others from across the Atlantic, Anvil nonetheless played louder, faster, and heavier than their heroes, in the process laying the groundwork for the thrash movement that took over heavy metal's underground in the '80s. Yet unlike many of the furious West Coast thrashers that immediately...
