Anvil, April 26, Shredder 


No one knows how elusive success can be than musicians (OK, child actors probably have some idea). Just ask Canadian metal band Anvil.

Anvil put in more than 30 years, put out more than a dozen releases and was name-dropped by massive metal names like Megadeth and Metallica as an important influence. And although the band continued to perform, the 2008 documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil opens with Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister, Metallica's Lars Ulrich and Anthrax's Scott Ian wondering what became of the band, before cutting to a scene of vocalist/guitarist Steve "Lips" Kudlow at his job delivering school lunches. Since the documentary hit theaters, Anvil has seen a resurgence in popularity and has gotten a little more familiar with evasive twins, Fame and Fortune.
