“Anvil: The Story of Anvil” is a 2008 documentary film by Sacha Gervasi. It tells the story of – you guessed it – Anvil.
Anvil is a Canadian heavy metal band formed in 1973 by then high school friends Steve “Lips” Kudlow and Robb Reiner. Together they took the band to a certain level of success in the early to mid 1980s, tantalizingly close to the top of the Heavy Metal music scene. Their major breakthrough and the accompanying fame and fortune eluded them however.
They never really “Made it Big”.
