Anvil! The Story of Anvil 

Directed by Sacha Gervasi (VH1 Classics)

"Jeff and Cyrus believed in their hearts they were headed/For stage lights and Learjets, and fortune and fame/So in script that made prominent use of a pentagram/They stenciled their drumheads and guitars with their names..." That's a Mountain Goats lyric---but sub in "Lips and Robb Reiner" for "Jeff and Cyrus" and you have the story of Anvil, an enthusiastic Canadian metal band who found moderate early 1980s success, influenced a generation of metal---and then spent 30 years not making it. Sacha Gervasi's excellent Anvil! The Story of Anvil follows the scrappy guys through a hope-filled, disastrous European tour, and the self-financed making of their 13th album. I want to hug Anvil, buy all their albums and then never listen to any of them.
