Saturday night I went to go see the new movie, “Anvil, The Story of Anvil”. I must admit that I am not too keen on documentary’s, but I could not pass up the story of Anvil. This movie does a pretty good job capturing the 30 years of Anvil, with some pretty cool guest appearances by Scott Ian, Slash, Lemmy and more.
If you have never listened to Anvil before, this movie will make you a new fan of Anvil. I loved the movie and will likely pick this up when it hits DVD.
After the movie, Anvil performed a small but very cool set in theater directly after the movie. They performed the title track off their latest album, “This is Thirteen”, as well as their lost classics, “Metal on Metal” and “666”. I was able to meet Lips and Robb Reiner from the band after the show. It was a cool night of rock and roll, and a unique experience at that.
The footage below is from the Minneapolis show, but will give you an idea of what I saw in Cincinnati. If you get the chance to see this movie, by all means go. It is a fun movie, that is worth seeing, especially if you are a metalhead, like myself.
Rating: Out of 5
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you hard rocking mom’s!
Here is a triple shot of videos from one of the coolest Metal Mom’s, Lita Ford. Enjoy!
