ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL

Forming the band Anvil in 1982, the duo released one of the heaviest albums of all time — Metal on Metal — influencing some of the biggest names in rock including Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax. But while those bands went on to sell millions of albums and achieve international fame, Anvil’s career took a different path – straight to obscurity.

Until now…

Director Sacha Gervasi (Hitchcock) brings us Anvil! The Story of Anvil – a brilliant, achingly hilarious, and surprisingly touching documentary about Anvil’s last-ditch quest for fame and fortune. He joins the band members, now in the 50’s, as they perform all over the world, record a new album and struggle to make ends meet. Providing an intimate, insightful look into the band members’ ever-supportive, yet long-suffering families, Anvil! The Story of Anvil is also a tale of survival – and the passion and drive it takes to follow your dream, year after year after year.

AT FOURTEEN THEY MADE A PACT TO ROCK FOREVER. FIFTY YEARS LATER THEY STILL MEAN IT.
