The one, The ONLY, The Mighty. ..ANVIL!
Local support Lycanthro and Démence will kick it off.
Yet Anvil is Anvil not only touches on sensitive issues but also documents the band’s lust for life, their dynamic musical style and their absolute down-to-earthiness. When Kudlow delivers the line “Ace of Spades and the joker is wild” on ´It´s Your Move` with a surprisingly realistic Motörhead timbre, it proves his sense of humour and is an homage at the same time (“close friends with Lemmy since 1981, he is definitely part of the family”). And when Anvil invite their fans to the studio to join the choir on ´Daggers And Rum`, it only shows the closeness between the musicians and their fans. “We’ve never recorded a pirate metal shanty such as ´Daggers & Rum` before. I’m sure this number will go down well on the upcoming tour.”
Hailing from the bitter north comes a band that believes in keeping the spirit of classic heavy metal alive, and their name is Lycanthro. A young 4-piece metal band from Ottawa, ON Canada. They are a classic style metal band that incorporates elements of Thrash, Speed and Power metal into their sound, along the veins of Judas Priest, Manowar, Exciter and Megadeth, while at the same time incorporating lyrical themes and imagery based on classic horror and mythology. They started in the winter of 2014 and has since performed alongside such metal giants as Blaze Bayley (ex-Iron Maiden), Beyond Creation, Hibria and Untimely Demise (members of Into Eternity). In 2017 Lycanthro released their debut self-titled EP where their old-school style sound, ripping guitar solos, heart pounding drums and bass and howling high pitched screams are the most prominent. Lycanthro will continue to howl into the night and into the future and will continue to fight to keep classic metal alive and well because in the words of Lycanthro in metal we trust!
