Along with Accept and Manowar, Anvil were one of the last heavy metal bands to surface before thrash hit the scene. And like Accept and Manowar, Anvil released a landmark classic metal album in 1982. Unlike Accept and Manowar, following said landmark release Anvil's reputation never exceeded the status of a cult favourite. Whether the reason was bad timing, bad label support or bad luck, it sure as hell could not have been bad music.

This is everything metal is and should; if you don't have this record in your collection then you're not a true metal head. Metal On Metal is the sound of heavy metal and just as important as Judas Priest, Iron Maiden or Motörhead. When you listen to this album you will know the true meaning of metal. Whether it's killer riffs, guitar solos or sick drum beats Anvil will deliver it to you. They have a great sound it, reminds me of early Judas Priest records but heavier.

The best album I've ever heard from them, and a pure classic for the genre of NWOBHM. Every song here just keeps up the pace and never disappoints the listener. No wonder they're seen as a primary influence in many modern bands' eyes. Can't wait to see them at BOA this year!

Erm...Anvil are Canadian. Still, know what you mean: the bits of this album I've heard are really awesome. How these guys aren't better known bemuses me.

Doesn't surprise me at all since only Metal On Metal and Forged In Fire are good to great, the rest is all very mediocre

The Scorpions song is from 1990. This song is 8 years older.
