I think you might enjoy the movie Geoff, but I dunno if Anvil's tunes would be quite yo'thang.

 

As for the new album, haven't heard it yet but I'm workin' on it...

Yeah, I also doubt the music will be for me, but super interested in the film for sure. :) Any Aussies know if this is out in Australia?

I agree you'd like the movie Cousin but not the bands music.

It's probably a little to metal for you kind of like Maiden meets Motorhead and I don't see that being your thing at all.

After hearing many of the older Anvil releases lately some are hit or miss but all usually have a handful of killer tracks with a few fillers thrown in. It's to bad this band couldn't of been more consistent. I'm currently in the middle of reading their autobiography and I can see why the never made it. Bad businees, bad managment decisions(never should of signed with David Krebs but shouldn't of taken Johnny Z up on his offer) and never had a major label.

 

I will say that I feel like this new album "This is Thirteen" might be the best thing they've ever done and is right on par with "Metal on Metal" and "Forged in Fire" IMO. :headbanger:

I'm likin' THIS IS THIRTEEN a lot. It hasn't had time to fully "gel" yet but it definitely hearkens back to the good ole days of M-O-M and F-I-F, as Wes sez.

I just finished reading their book tonight and now I'm looking forward to the next disc "Juggernaut of Justice". Supposedly this disc is done so hopefully it comes out early 2010. :headbanger:

I don't know Wes!

My friend is getting me a ticket and thats all I know at the moment...

Since I've seen the movie, I'd rather have a kickass warm up band backing them...

Watching the film today the tracks off this one sounded really good to me, so I've just ordered the CD. 'Bombs Away' is a great tune. Really want to see these guys live, looks like they always put on a great show. Hope they play London next year! :banger:

I saw Anvil live once back in '95 (opening for Raven) and they blew tha roof off tha joint. I wasn't much more than a casual Anvil fan at the time (I didn't own any of their albums even though I knew a bunch of their songs) but that show made me into a fanboy.

 

All the attention that they've been getting from the documentary makes me smile. Most bands would've said "f*ck it" and packed it in twenty years ago, but they're still out there pluggin', and finally getting some recognition for it.

Yep, such completely genuine guys too, I really hope they make some money out of the documentary and resulting album sales. They deserve it!

Yeah, I said the same in the 'Last movies' thread. I can't say I'd personally be a fan of their music, but no doubt at all they deserve some success and I'd love to see it come their way.

    • God they must be desperate. Notice they didn't say write a new song, prob cos all their latest songs have been rubbish. I'd be interested to hear one though to see if they can still write something mildly amusing 🤔  
    • Hold on soldier, I'm hoping that wasn't aimed at me. I don't think I was putting anyone down, and as far as I know, I'm not an atheist either. I don't actually know. I can't stand all this label rubbish and don't have a label for my thoughts on this stuff. Yes, I believe you are born, you live and you die and that's the end of it. But they're just my thoughts.  Anyway, why are we talking about Christmas now anyway? Still almost 30 days to go... 
    • Agree, love that Irish girl type look. Tans are overrated!
    • Only humans were created in the image of God, and most consider that to mean possession of an eternal soul. However, the animals were put on the earth for humans to have dominion and use plus care for them. As for Heaven, we can't know what it will be like, but in my mind it would not be heaven if there were not dogs for me to hang out with, so I expect that yes there will be animals, otherwise how is it heaven for an animal lover? This view of heaven being in the clouds, wearing robes and playing harps is mostly an atheist's invention to mock what they can't comprehend. To try and explain heaven to an atheist is like trying to describe the sky to someone who has had their face buried in mud their entire lives. It's a rather fruitless and usually thankless task. I know atheists have their pile of dirt and nothingness to look forward to (lol). Yes, I am aware that atheists have invented this concept of "ascention" through genetic evolution or artificial immortality as a replacement of heaven in your religion, but I'm not sure how atheists rationalise an incorporeal existence in their concept of pointless nothingness. It doesn't bother me either what you atheists believe, I just wish you weren't so arrogant about your nihilistic mindset and cease with the put downs of those who don't share your belief set. And merry Christmas my pagan friends! I genuinely mean that.
    • Haha. Been decades since I had any discussions like this on the forum and I definitely do not want to revisit, but as my mind is always ticking over I was actually thinking about stuff the other day. So if we (humans) get a fancy afterlife kickin' it with Jesus and God n' stuff, do animals? When an ant dies, does the ant experience Heaven? Does a dog, or a cat? An elephant? Do all beings experience Heaven (or hell too, I guess, if they didn't follow the gospel?). Or do only humans experience Heaven, and if so, why do animals have a pointless existence but there simply must be something more to a human's life other than being born, living and dying?  Genuinely curious, compadre. I used to have many discussions with Mark (metalmaniac777) back in the day and we're still best buds and we even made love a few times. I'm sure he doesn't mind me disclosing that. So seriously not having a dig, but I live to learn. 
    • lol. Really interested to know if they get any takers. Solid wad of cash, $7500. Mildly interesting they still use a photo of the band with Lexxi in it, assuming they haven't replaced him yet? 
    • Yeah, I got a bit of a Degreed vibe from it too. Quality stuff. 
    • My wife had the news on this afternoon and I saw this mind numbing horseshit panic-splashed across the headlines. I thought wow, this sounds alarming. But I heard B.1.1.530 is going to hit even harder. To be honest, though, they called it something else on Aussie news, though - Cock Makers variant, or something like that. I seriously can't remember, but they actually had a name for it rather than this morse code version of it.  Anyway, 95% vaccinated in NSW and we still have to walk around like moron beatshit brains with our face masks on - mandatory - in all indoor settings. Mask rules weren't even this harsh for the majority of the pre-vaccine pandemic. Fuck me I love this cuntry. 
    • Yes, very nice, but unfortunately a distinct lack of "Titties" on show! FFS! This isn't the "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread!
    • Not for me, but have at it bud.
