ANVIL CHORUS: ‘Blondes In Black’/’Once Again’ (Leviathan Records)

I was lucky enough to see Anvil Chorus headline a ‘Metal Monday’ in San Francisco recently, and I can safely say they’re up there with the best of the NWOSFHM’ bands. It makes a welcome change to hear a US outfit churning out an original sound and not simply ripping off Van Halen and Co.

This double A-side single is a worthy purchase for the connoisseur as both ‘Blondes In Black’ and ‘Once Again’ are fine songs, redolent of Rush and Saga crossed. And hats off to Doug Peircy and Thaen Rassmussen who are a fine pair of axemen, not forgetting Aaron Zimpel whose voice has to be heard to be believed!
