After the release of the critically acclaimed documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil in 2008, Canada's kings of heavy metal persistence Anvil rode a furious wave of success. They re-released their 13th album This Is Thirteen, appeared on late-night TV, headlined sold-out tours through Europe and the US, and basically grabbed the glory they fully deserved. After all the hype faded and their name fell off the ends of everyone's tongues, Anvil did what they've done all along: They kept going. They released Juggernaut of Justice last year, did more touring in Europe with the likes of Saxon and Alice Cooper, and now they're on tour with the Michael Schenker Group (despite the fact that Schenker scoffed at Lips in the Anvil! film). Even though they're not a household name anymore, Anvil will no doubt still be brimming with joy from their ride. Seeing a grown man with a child-like glow play his guitar with a dildo is quite the heart-warming experience. ARIS WALES
