A few years ago the band Anvil were the stars of the documentary “Anvil: The Story Of Anvil” and the film put the band back on everyone’s radar even though they had never really been out of the public eye. You’ve very likely seen the film by now but that chapter is over and its again time to rock hard. Tonight the band would bring their Metal magic to the Highline Ballroom and have the young squires of Shitkill as direct support. To enjoy our full concert recap and see the photos of both band just click the logo below as that will take you over to the main PiercingMetal.com website.
One of the cool things that was on hand for the fans of the band this evening was the chance to join into the forces of the “Anvil Pounders Union”. This exclusive club got you a membership card, a show card and a signed 8*10 photograph of the band. The enrollment desk would even take your photo to be added to the official Facebook Page for the union and that seemed all worthy of the $10 price tag.
I don’t think that I have to tell you how Robb Reiner kicks some serious boot on the drums. Here is a shot of his kit on this tour. I don’t remember him using DDrum the last time around but perhaps he did. They sounded great.
If you needed a little refresher course on Robb’s overall drumming prowess just sit back and enjoy this video that I shot from the show using the ever trusty Panasonic Lumix camera. He’s long been one of my favorite skin bashers based on the groove and technique that he puts out there.
Here’s me with my official Anvil Pounder’s Union card. I could not resist signing up into the ranks and lending some support. It was only $10 and you got a card, and came with some collectible schwag. Truthfully, they should raise the price just a little bit more and give you a guitar pick from Lips and a drumstick from Robb. That would make it even sweeter. Am I wrong?
Oh and before I forget about this, the boys in Shitkill had a great new shirt for sale. Take a look at this one. That will grab peoples attention for sure.
Keep pounding \m/
