08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
05:13 - Zaphod Turisas, Whispered and Behemoth are just the ones that don't pull it off, there are plenty that do.
Heavy metal veterans Anvil have some good news for their fans. The band announced that they will release a new album next spring. The album will be titled Hope In Hell and follows 2011's Juggernaut Of Justice. This will be their 15th studio album and the first with bassist Sal Italiano.
They aren't the best band in the world by any stretch of the imagination but I think the majority of their material is good, the two Albums mentioned above are particularly good and they still kick ass live.
And they aren't going to stop when they are probably more popular than ever at the moment.
