Anvil have released their new music video “Legal At Last”, the title track from their upcoming album. “Legal At Last” will be released via AFM Records and the album will be available as digipak, digital, black vinyl and some limited colored vinyl.
Steve Kudlow is referring to songs which highlight Anvil’s great creative power. Be it the steam hammer flair of the title track, the unmistakably tongue-in-cheek “Nabbed In Nebraska” with its driving mid-tempo groove which brings to mind the Anvil classic “Metal On Metal”, the critical undertones of “Plastic In Paradise”, the doomy orientation of “Said And Done” and “Gasoline”, or fast and hard numbers such as “No Time”, “Chemtrails”, and “Food For The Vulture”: Anvil always get to the core of their characteristic sound. Which also applies to “I´m Alive” and “Bottom Line” – both rock numbers in the best sense of the term – and the comparatively catchy “Glass House.”
Talking of sound, for the first time in a career that spans more than forty years, Anvil have worked with the same producer on three consecutive albums. Like its predecessors, “Anvil Is Anvil” (2016) and “Pounding The Pavement” (2018), “Legal At Last” was produced by Martin “Mattes” Pfeiffer (U.D.O., among others). Jörg Uken was in charge of mix and engineering at his Soundlodge studio in Rhauderfehn, Germany, where Pounding The Pavement was also finalised.
That story brings us to the recent times. Anvil got busted, back then when they were touring in Nebraska & this is what their new pounding and powerful single is about. The reason? Find out about it yourself and bang your head!
