ANVIL Gets A Broadcast, Prepares New CD!

Veteran Canadian metallers ANVIL will be conducting a live concert radio broadcast via CKMS 100.3 FM from their performance in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario on January 31st, 2001. The broadcast will be part of the Space In Your Face (SIYF) program which is aired on CKMS on Thursdays from 10:00 PM to midnight. As previously reported, ANVIL's forthcoming release, entitled Still Going Strong, is tentatively due to be released in March. Frontman Lips recently had the following to say about the musical direction on the upcoming CD: "There will be an instrumental on this CD! We haven't writen any super speed songs like 'Park That Truck' or 'Real Metal'. The reason for that is that we've already done it! The songs are of various feels. Nothing really slow either, it's anywhere from mid to high tempos. It's pure power metal, that means it will have to have melody!!! I would best describe it as a continuation of Plenty or Power. I think the drumming is more intense this time round, I think Robb Reiner fans are going to be decapitated by this one!! If you though 'Beat the Law' was hot..."
