ANVIL’s new album ‘Impact Is Imminent’ is out. Here is why we are excited.

There are more than a dozen good reasons for us to be especially excited for Anvil’s latest offering, but we are only going to share 4 and let you add to the list.


Impact Is Imminent

AFM Records

Release: 20 May 2022
  1. None of their previous albums blends music and lyrics into as tight a unit as ‘Impact Is Imminent’
  2. The new material sounds monolithic, right down to the very last details, both in terms of rhythm and harmonies. 
  3. This creative situation was partly due to the pandemic: So, they proved that a band that loves what they do can take a bad situation and turn it to their advantage.
  4. The fourteen songs of ‘Impact Is Imminent’ feature plenty of highlights and special features: ‘Ghost Shadow’ is a typically awesome Anvil number in full pedal-to-the-metal mode, featuring extraordinary harmonies and a strange, dark ghost train atmosphere. ‘Bad Side Of Town’, ‘Fire Rain’ and ‘Lockdown’ sound just as haunting, the band adding to their outstanding strengths a breath of fresh air, an aggressive attitude and persistent drive. ‘Wizard`s Wand’ and its magical flair have special significance, as Kudlow explains: “Originally the number was called ‘Give Me The Goods’ and went “Give me good music, give me the goods”. But somehow I wasn’t happy with that. I closed my eyes, concentrated on the music and listened to my subconscious. Suddenly the line “The wizard’s wand with just a wave, the wizard’s wand all of us to save” came to my mind. Out of nowhere, the whole message was there: What would I actually do if I was a wizard? I’d change the world for the better! Once I’d found the theme, ‘Wizard`s Wand’ was finished in ten minutes flat.” 

Album Impact Is Imminent, released on CD, Vinyl and Digital formats is available to purchase at THIS LOCATION!
