Canadian Metal heroes Anvil release their first digital single and lyric video for the new song Ego today (November 17th). The song is taken from their forthcoming studio album Pounding The Pavement.

Ego is a song where Lips spread his razor-sharp guitar riffs over the dynamic rhythm foundation courtesy of Robb Reiner and Chris Robertson, adding additional bite with his familiar raw vocal style.

Pounding The Pavement will be released on January 19th through SPV/Steamhammer as a digipak version (+1 bonus track and poster), 2LP gatefold coloured version, download and stream.

Anvil will embark on a massive European-Tour from February to April 2018 with some festvals already announced for summer.

  1. I have not really enjoyed much of Anvil since Forged in Fire, but I actually liked this song. I thought the lyrics were kinda corny, though….typical Anvil. Robb Reiner’s drumming has always been a high point, for me, with Anvil’s music.

    Glad these guys are finally living their dream and finding some success with their band. Things may not have been as successful as Lips and Robb had hoped, but I admire their perseverance to live their dream.

  2. Never a fan of Anvil. The whole S&M thing that Lips seems to be into when you listen to his lyrics never appealed to me, and seems even more ridiculous now when you consider the age of these guys. But I give them full props for sticking to their guns and continuing to put out new music and touring for all these years, despite the fact that they have never attained any significant level of commercial success.
