Anvil Prep 'Hope in Hell'
This is the first album to feature new Anvil bassist Sal Italiano, who joined the group a year ago. It was recorded at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, CA, with returning producer Bob Marlette (Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper), who also helmed 2011's Juggernaut of Justice.
According to a press release, the album finds the band sticking to their classic metal sound while also venturing into rock'n'roll on the aptly titled "Badass Rock'n'Roll," '70s-oriented classic rock on "Time Shows No Mercy," and a mechanical style on "Mankind Machine."
Anvil frontman Steve "Lips" Kudlow said in a statement, "What we do is totally timeless. We've never tried to change our sound or experiment with trends and fashions. We live in our own world and have maintained our individuality and own identity."
He further explained, "Hope in Hell sounds like Anvil live on stage: natural, honest, unvarnished, never over-produced and straight from the heart."
Hope in Hell will be available as a limited-edition digipak with bonus cuts or in standard CD, vinyl or digital formats. See the tracklist below, and scroll past that to watch a European teaser video that includes a brief snippet of new music.
