At 14, school friends Steve ‘Lips’ Kudlow and Robb Reiner made a pact to rock together forever. Their band, Anvil, went on to become the ‘demigods of Canadian metal,’ releasing one of the heaviest albums in metal history, 1982’s Metal on Metal. The album influenced a musical generation, including Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, all of whom went on to sell millions of records. But Anvil’s career took a different path - straight to obscurity.
Anvil! The Story of Anvil is a timeless, and at time hilarious, feel-good tale of survival and the unadulterated passion it takes to follow your dream. Directed by Sacha Gervasi, we follow the band as they attempt one last shot at the big time with their thirteenth album ‘This is Thirteen’ and a calamitous European tour. You don’t have to be a metal head to love Anvil. This is an inspirational, heart warming and uplifting tale of two best friends who refuse to give up on their dream. Metal on Metal forever!
