UK reissue of this 2000 album from the Canadian Metal legends. Anvil features Steve "Lips" Kudlow (lead vocals, lead guitar), Robb Reiner (drums), and Glenn Five (bass, backing vocals). To date, the band has released 13 studio albums, and has been cited as having influenced many notable Heavy Metal groups, including Slayer, Anthrax, and Metallica. The band, in particular Kudlow and Reiner, was the subject of the 2008 documentary film Anvil! The Story of Anvil, directed by the screenwriter and former Anvil roadie Sacha Gervasi. Upon its release, the film garnered critical acclaim from many major publications, and has since brought the band renewed recognition, including opening slots with AC/DC and Saxon. Massacre. 2010.
Speed of Sound, heavy as an Anvil

"Starting with a Roaring Engine, followed by a short drum fill this cd hits you hard, a great mixture of powerful True Metal and fast Speedmetal. Awesome and interesting drumming and a fast and melodic guitar cover the deficits in writing good lyrics, the only thing that kept me away from a 5 Star Rating. So buy this CD if you're into...well, Anvil.(plz excuse my bad english :)"

"This is the new album of the trash-legends Anvil. I like this CD(this is the only one I have so, I have no point of reference); fast and powerful songs, old-trash-school-like. What really caught my attention of these dudes (besides the good songwriting) is the sense of humour they show in the songs. You can take a look at the titles: "Park that truck", "Mattress mambo".My favorites are "Park...", "Speed of sound"(really heavy and powerful)and "No Evil". You will find really cool songs from a band that seems to enjoy(more than usual) what they're doing. If you like trash or heavy metal, get this CD."
