I've been on the fence about Black Anvil. Their first single "Eventide" was alright at best, but on the other hand I like their 2010 record Triumvirate.
Could their upcoming record Hail Death be the one that loses me?
The answer is a resounding negative. Their new jam "Still Reborn" is so good and covers so much more than black metal. There's a lot of punk influence in there, so massive clean vocals, guitar hooks that are actually hooks and not just walls of black metal static and killer leads! Nine minutes of pure interesting is always a good addition to any record.
Hail Death is out May 27 via Relapse Records.
