ANVIL To Film New Album Recording Sessions For Upcoming Documentary

Canadian metallers ANVIL have re-teamed with producer Chris Tsangarides for the first time since 1983's classic "Forged in Fire" album to record their new CD, "This Is Thirteen" (or "TIT" for short). The recording sessions are taking place at Tsangarides' Dump Studios in England and are being filmed for an upcoming feature drama-documentary covering ANVIL's return to the metal scene.

Regarding the documentary footage — which is being filmed and directed by Sacha Gervasi, who worked as writer on the Steven Spielberg-directed movie "The Terminal" (2004) — ANVIL mainman Steve "Lips" Kudlow told Total Rock on Saturday (April 22), "There's been some moments I wished that [the cameras] weren't there. I even had to say, 'You've gotta shut the thing off right now because I'm gonna lose my temper and I don't think that needs to be on film.' [Laughs] [It's very easy to forget that the cameras are there] and you could say things that you really shouldn't say. I went in and I started talking about my sister-in-law and I shouldn't have been — just making fun of her name and it went to film and I shouldn't have done that, 'cause if she ever sees that, she'll know that I said that. Just silly things that aren't gonna mean anything to anybody else but me."

"This Is Thirteen" is tentatively set to include 13 songs. The CD cover will reportedly be a superstitious theme, as in a broken mirror, black cat and the anvil under a ladder.
