The card carrying members of the Anvil Pounder’s Union will be excited at the news that those Canuckleheads of Metal will be returning for a Spring 2014 tour that they are calling “Hope In Hell”. It’s the name of their most recent album in case you didn’t know and more information comes after the poster below.
Hey there my Metal Legions and let me once again wish you a very “Happy New Year 2014″ if you didn’t see my “first day” message a couple of days ago. It’s my pleasure to welcome you all to our third year of our series “New Year’s Music Resolutions”. As the site has picked many new readers in 2013, I’ll let them know that this series asks a number of musicians who were asked to participate what their music resolution would be for the year and its always a lot of fun unveiling their plans to you all. For this years series I waited until we were inside the New Year to begin the narratives as opposed to running just after Christmas. That said here is the first chapter. Enjoy.
1. Acey Slade (Solo/Trashlight Vision/Dark Party/Joan Jett): ‘I have, easily, 2 albums worth of material written and maybe 1 more albums worth of 1/2 finished ideas. One of the reasons I haven’t entered the studio was because I was watching what format music listeners are purchasing music on. Sadly the answer that I have seen over the past year is that most music listeners are just not buying music period. Most. Not all. I have some pretty awesome fans and I think I have formulated a plan that will see me in the studio in 2014 doing an album of my own stuff. That’s the goal. At least one album of new stuff.
2. Joe Kurland (Armory): “My New Year’s Music Resolution is simply to try to enjoy music again, whether listening to it, creating it, and especially playing instruments. Being a perfectionist and ultra analyzing everything often makes the whole process of making an album an overwhelmingly stressful burden. Like the Ring in TLOTR, it gives purpose to your life and drives you to achieve great things yet it slowly rots you from the inside. It would also be nice to play several shows and festivals in 2014 in support of our new album”.
“Gimme Five” readers, or better yet, how aboutI give you five. Yep, here we are at the Fifth Chapter of my collected “New Year’s Music Resolutions for 2013″ from some musical greats. I’ve really enjoyed hearing what all of these artists have on their minds so far for the coming year and wait with anticipation for each new segment. Yeah I know I compiled the series, but I am reading it just as you would once its all loaded up so it keeps me thrilled. Here we go.
1. Sima (Solo Artist): My New Year’s Music Resolution for 2013 is to keep expressing my heart as a woman, an artist and stay true to myself. By doing this I will create new, rocking music, continue to explore my talent and look for new ways to get inspired and be creative. I truly want to reach out, touch, uplift and inspire individuals. I want to be a part of giving, receiving, and sharing love with people all over the world. I will challenge my abilities, myself as a human being and as an artist. I promise to grow, evolve, shine like a star from inside and out.
2. Angelina Del Carmen (Charetta): My band wrote mine for me ‘I will finally figure out how to use my vocal effects processor once and for all, so that I don’t further annoy my band by scrolling through the various settings repeatedly during rehearsal” – Angelina’s…. band’ But my biggest resolution for 2013 is to write, record, promote, and work fearlessly on our new book, album and clothing line.
3. Rachel Aspe (Solo Artist): My Metal Resolution for 2013 is to invade the whole world by winning “America’s Got Talent”, “X Factor”, “American Idol” and “The Voice” contests. Or maybe I’ll find a great band…
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.
Anvil was back and riding high on the success of their documentary film “Anvil The Story Of Anvil”. The last time around that they visited, it was to present the film and then perform a few numbers for media outlets and a few select fans. It was a great time and we wished them well in recharging the batteries in their already lengthy career. Tonight the band would be touring as the sole main act and depending on where they played, an area support band would start off the fun. There would be no movie shown and that was fine by me since I’ve already seen it a few times. It would be held at the Gramercy Theatre and Long Island’s own Misery would open the show. You can check out the full concert article by clicking the band’s logo below, as that will take you to the item on the main PiercingMetal.com site. We also encourage you to scroll down this post a little further to see some of the other fun moments that were captured. You can only find those images here so by all means dig in.
