Anvil! The Story Of Anvil

ABC2  |  January 1, 2012

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 times hilarious, feel-good tale of survival and the unadulterated passion it takes to follow your dream. Broadcast as part of ABC's Sunday Best.
