    I saw the documentary over the weekend and decided to give Anvil’s music a shot, from the clips I’ve seen I think they’re a good live band, but their albums are terrible in my opinion. I don’t want to be mean, but the songs I didn’t think were that good and the production was really bad. If you ask me (which nobody did but who cares), the reason Anvil never made it beyond the Super Rock Festival in ‘84 was because bands like Metallica, the Scorpions, Guns N’ Roses, Megedeth etc wrote better songs and better albums. I do think some of the thrash bands ripped off Anvil’s sound a little bit and left them in the dust, but they still made better albums.

      Nah...they never RADICALLY changed their sound to a point where they fell flat on their face. St Anger? Not really, but it wasn't great. I saw them on their first tour and many times after....they haven't changed much.

  • Jurgen Cuypers

    Metallica did shit for Anvil. Giving praise is one thing, but they could have given them a hand by taking them on the road with them.

    He's go so much knowledge of music, it's refreshing. He's like a damn musicologist with all his information and eloquent rhetoric. Not a fan of Metallica post Justice but I give the guy credit.

    Hey, Diamond Head was an awesome band and never got huge. Bugdie was an awesome band but never got huge. Canandian, Razor and Exciter are awesome but never got huge. Shit happens.

      William I didn't. "Heavy Metal Maniac" is supremely underrated. A lot of great metal has come from Canada, including Annihilator 👍

      Because anvil were a fucking joke....their foolishness antics....dumb lyrics and the frontman making stupid faces doesn’t sit with metal fans for the long run....plain and simple....anyone doesn’t see that in anvil needs to open their eyes

    Lars yaps. Yada, yada, yada...until. "The dildo. You are a rock star. You have got to know the difference between a dildo and a vibrator. One is cylindrical and the other has a Head. C'mon Lars. the guys in Basketball didn't pull out a dildo from his wannabe girlfriends mothers drawer...a vibrator...don't leave home without it. Kerrang! man. Where's your sense of humor Lars? Anvil. Heavy Metal. Great drummer. Fast guitar playing, great, A-1 drummer. Why not them instead of say, Slayer? To stay together and pick away at that minute % of the record was real. Kudos Anvil. Lars...just play..I love ya but just play.

    Say what you will about Lars's drumming; I personally think it's okay dunno why everyone hates it, but you can definitely hear the influence of Anvil and Robb Reiner in musicians like Lars.

    • Steven Hall
      Steven Hall 2 years ago

      Robb Reiner might have influenced his drumming but Lars isn't half the drummer Robb is. Fact.

    • Alec David Bauer

    Lars so awsome for him take time out of a hectic schedule and say something nice about anvil for their movie. Heck that might help increase some record sales.

    • LSweet2007

      This was for the movie. So, unless people are feeling obscure nostalgic then maybe it just might help with record sales!

    Lars Ulrich knows a lot about 80's Metal!!! He's Danish and was a huge fan of N.W.O.B.H.M. He really was into Heavy Metal back then.

    Metal was actually a youth movement in the late 70s and 80s the way Hip Hop is now it seems (Sadly). In 80s mostly white High Schools pretty much everyone dressed in denim and leather.

    Surprised Lars mentioning bands like Teaze and Moxy. Everyone talks about more well known Canadian bands like Anvil, Rush or whatever, but seems Lars knows a little bit about Canadian rock from the 70s.
