The film Anvil! The Story of Anvil effectively transformed Anvil from pitiable has-beens into the next great cult group—a premise that we, as music lovers, are eternally susceptible to. But are they truly a forgotten treasure, or did the film's creators merely dip into the record store free bin when searching for a rockumentary subject and come up with a threadbare copy of Metal on Metal? At the risk of beating a horse that's been dead for years now, Anvil were hugely important in the development of thrash, and their lack of initial success can be attributed to pretty much everything other than their music—the oldest tale in the rock 'n' roll repository. But boy, did they get the last laugh. MORGAN TROPER
