anvil band6381Canadian metal pioneers, Anvil, have released a video for “Zombie Apocalypse” from their new  studio album, Anvil is Anvil. Released in February 2016 on Steamhammer Records, Anvil is Anvil, is the band’s sixteenth album and the first with bassist Chris Robertson. Anvil is Anvil was reviewed on Decibel Geek back in February: Album Review

About “Zombie Apocalypse”, lead singer/guitarist Lips says “I love the feel and tempo which allows for melody and sheer power.”  Drummer Robb Reiner, describes the song as, “A blood Rock/Sabbath inspiration of sorts,… combined with slamming doom feel….the track is hypnotic in nature,….displaying a shredding of a guitar solo and has been fun to perform live!”


The band was formed in 1978 in Toronto and featured Steve “Lips” Kudlow (lead vocals, lead guitar), Robb Reiner (drums), Dave Allison (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Ian Dickson (bass). Their first album, Hard ‘N’ Heavy, was released in 1981. Chris Robertson joined the band on bass in 2014.
