Anvil Chorus. The name itself suggests something a little more than the typical hard rock band; something intelligent and complex, even sophisticated -- and they were. Anvil Chorus made a thinking man's metal. Clearly influenced by the prevailing titans of progressive rock and heavy metal of the day, Anvil Chorus was a fount of unique inspirations. A group of talented individuals, half of them multiinstrumentalists and all of them bringing to the table a creative flair. The composition, arrangement and melodic skills enjoyed a harmonic and contrapuntal implementation that was delivered crushingly. hugely. The sound was Big with a capital "B". The guitar harmonies, keyboard wizardry and bottled-lightning rhythm section were a powerful collision. Heavy riffs, catchy melodies, belting vocals and a refined aesthetic completed the signature sound; Anvil Chorus, in the early 1980s, rightly earned a buzz of their own for their unique and exquisite style, which to this day continues to be regarded as significant and influential.
Now nearly 3 decades after the group's formation and a couple
years after their recent reformation, this legendary
underground San Francisco progressive heavy metal band
unleashes their first full length debut album for the
Rockadrome label. Consisting solely of newly recorded
material from their early 80s heyday, it's destined to be the
classic album everyone has long awaited from this magical
group. Led by guitarist Thaen Rasmussen and
vocalist/bassist Aaron Zimpel, the integrity of their original
sound is fully maintained and should please anyone who
has followed the band through the years or owned any of
their heavily circulated demo tapes. A 16-page color booklet
with liner notes written by San Francisco metal legend Ron
Quintana (KUSF/Metal Mania) and cover art by Mark Devito
(Motorhead), packed with lyrics, photos and memories,
complete this magnificent and much anticipated release.
