Anvil – Hope In Hell (2013)
Posted by JT
Hope In Hell
The End Records, 2013
The Story of Anvil brought a great deal of overdue attention to this Canadian heavy metal act; they have capitalized on that attention with the releases of This Is Thirteen, Juggernaut of Justice, and a compilation album, and the band seeks to continue their success with the newly pressed Hope In Hell. Unfortunately, that success may be hard to come by. There are a few excellent tracks here, and plenty for hard rock fans to sink their teeth into. I’m not a big fan of songs that are littered with profanity, so tracks eight and eleven automatically get skipped on repeat listenings.
There are some really good songs here, though, if you don’t take it too seriously. “Through With You” is a mid-tempo rocker, though Lips never explains why he will “see you next Tuesday.” “Hard Wired” is a faster paced thrasher, and “Flying” is like a metal version of the country classic “I’ve Been Everywhere.” I must repeat, you can’t take it too seriously if you want to enjoy this album, but despite the duds it is a fun record for metal fans.
