No one cares about Anvil, so why would anyone care about an Anvil tribute?
I don’t know why they’re doing this, but Skol Records is putting together the first A Tribute To Anvil compilation, which they say will be released in early 2013.
The album will be produced by Bart Gabriel, who has produced similar tributes to Cirith Ungol, Metalucifer, and Sabbat.
Anvil’s one of those bands people like to say they like, but it’s all talk. No one really understands Anvil or likes them. It’s just cool to say you’re down, for some reason I don’t get.
“This will be a real tribute, a really high-quality release, because Anvil deserve to have one,” Gabriel says.
“I realize it won’t be a bestseller, but all those who have seen ‘Anvil! The Story Of Anvil’ movie will understand what’s the driving force behind this project,” he says.
“I’m one of those guys who got inspired by Anvil to continue, to follow my dreams, to never give up. And I know there are many, many bands around who feel like the movie is about them as well. It’s all about positive energy, and I’m truly honored that the project was approved and blessed by Anvil members, [which is what] makes it even more special!”
