Three Records in, Black Anvil Is "Still Reborn" with a New Streaming Track
Many may identify NYC's Black Anvil as black metal, but just like the city that birthed the band, their approach is a bit of a melting pot. Clearly hardcore/punk enters into the mix (subliminally or no) per their background, but elements of death metal, thrash, and several other genres enter into the equation that is a Black Anvil. Never has that been more apparent than on their newest effort HAIL DEATH.
Due on May 27 via Relapse Records, Black Anvil's latest effort is produced by Government Issue/Jawbox/Burning Airlines member J.Robbins, who normally sits in with bands that lean punk and indie. The result is a bright, melodic yet venomous new effort that never stays faithful to genre, yet grabs you by the throat and won't let go. Check out the opening burner "Still Reborn," streaming for the first time below.
