New Album “Pounding The Pavement” Announced By Anvil

Legendary Canadian metal act Anvil announced the next installment in three word album titles – “Pounding the Pavement.” The album will be released on January 19, 2018 through SPV/Steamhammer as a digipak version (+1 bonus track and poster), 2LP gatefold colored version, digital download and streaming platforms.

Of course there are bands that have garnered higher chart positions, sold more albums and filled bigger venues than Anvil. Yet there are few metal acts that have earned as much respect from colleagues as the Canadian act surrounding vocalist/guitarist Steve “Lips” Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner. The most renowned Anvil aficionados include, among others, international stars such as Metallica and the late Lemmy of Motörhead, who have expressed their unreserved admiration time and again. The reasons for this evident respect are obvious: since 1978, Anvil has been the epitome of a passionate heavy metal band that refuses to be thrown off course by setbacks, adverse conditions and inconsistencies on the business side of things. The latest album “Pounding The Pavement” proves their impressive stamina: never before have Anvil sounded as diverse, determined and inspiring.

Why has “Pounding The Pavement” turned into such an awesome offering? Kudlow’s explanation is simple: “The songwriting process started immediately after the work on our previous album, ‘Anvil Is Anvil,’ had been completed,” he says. “So our thoughts instantly turned to the future again. After ‘Anvil Is Anvil’ had been cut, everybody knew what we had just delivered and what Anvil’s future should sound like.”

Despite the diverse range of their ideas, Kudlow, Reiner and their bassist Chris Robertson have succeeded in filling the typical trademarks of this unusual band with life once again – which is an important aspect for every Anvil release, after all tradition and reliability play an essential role in this group. Kudlow: “Of course we always allow inspirations from earlier recordings to seep in, but always with an emphasis on evolving the characteristic Anvil sound. Lots of fans keep asking us to play the way we did in the so-called good old days. That’s why I try from time to time to pick up on that exciting feel of our older material. Mind you, it’s always exclusively about the basic atmosphere of that time, never about copying an older song.”

“Pounding The Pavement” was produced at the Soundlodge studios in Rhauderfehn in the northwest of Germany, where Anvil found not only the necessary peace and seclusion to concentrate on the recordings, but also met in studio owner Jörg Uken the ideal producer for the ambitioned work. Talking of which: the programmatic album title “Pounding The Pavement” is a synonym for the consistently serious challenge of ensuring Anvil’s financial survival. Kudlow: “I feel nothing could describe the way we’ve been working for the past forty years better than ‘Pounding The Pavement’: Anvil have tried for four decades to earn enough money to survive and continue to make music.”

Details Of New LP “Prometheus, Symphonia Ignis Divinus” Revealed By Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody

The creators of cinematic metal are finally back with their most outstanding record: “Prometheus, Symphonia Ignis Divinus,” which is set to be released on June 19th (EU), June 22nd (UK), June 30th (US) by Nuclear Blast Records. Pre-order your copy at this location.

The album was composed and produced once again by Luca Turilli, responsible, as always for all the orchestral and choral arrangements. It was recorded and mixed at the Backyard Studios of Sebastian Roeder (Bonfire a.o.) and mastered by Christoph Stickel (Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock a.o.) at MSM studios.

Seven months of composition, three months of production, over 50 days of mix, two choirs, several special guests, including Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear), Dan Lucas (Karo) and David Readman (Pink Cream 69). Including 70 minutes of epic music, sounding cinematic, bombastic and dramatic as never before, the new Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody masterwork will lead the listener to an emotional and memorable journey between quantum gates, parallel dimensions, myths and legends hiding cosmic truths, ancestral secrets and spiritual revelations.

And this time it was not enough for the band to simply sound cinematic. It came the time for Rhapsody to finally “look” cinematic too. Therefore, the new cover artwork and the album booklet, introducing the new cinematic graphic style of the band, were realized by the well-known amazing artist named Stefan “Heile” Heilemann (Epica, Lindemann a.o.).

The digipak version of the album will include the cinematic version of “Thundersteel,” the famous song of Riot, performed by the Luca Turilli’s RHAPSODY singer Alessandro Conti in duet with Ralf Scheepers!

The first single, entitled “Rosenkreuz (The Rose And The Cross)” will be released on April 24th, 2015. The long-awaited orchestral ballad “Fantasia Gotica,” not included in the full length album, will be released as a bonus song before the same album release. More news will follow soon on how to get it for free!
