ANVIL: ‘Badass Rock N Roll’ Video Premiere
Reposted from Blabbermouth.net
“Badass Rock N Roll”, the new video from Canadian metal legends ANVIL, can be seen at this location. The song is taken from the band’s new album, “Hope In Hell”, which sold a little under 800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The disc follows up “Juggernaut Of Justice”, which opened with around 1,600 units back in May 2011. The 2009 re-release of the band’s 2007 CD, “This is Thirteen”, registered a first-week tally of 1,400 to enter the Top New Artist Albums chart at No. 19.
Released on May 27 in Europe and May 24 in Germany on SPV/Steamhammer, “Hope In Hell” is available in four different formats: as a limited-edition digipak including two bonus tracks, as a jewel case CD, double gatefold colored vinyl LP and as a digital download. These are the first cuts featuring ANVIL‘s new bassist Sal Italiano, who joined the band a year ago.
“Hope In Hell” was written and recorded following an 18-month world tour which took ANVIL around the globe.
Like “Juggernaut Of Justice”, “Hope In Hell” was produced by Bob Marlette (BLACK SABBATH, AIRBOURNE, ALICE COOPER) at the NRG Recording studios in North Hollywood, California and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, SEPULTURA).

Napalm Records has announced the signing of CAVALERA CONSPIRACY. The thrash metal outfit, which released the critically acclaimed and universally praised albums “Inflikted” and “Blunt Force Trauma” through Roadrunner Records, has found a new home at the Austrian label. The band revolving around the legendary brothers Max and Igor Cavalera — both founding members of SEPULTURA — is currently working on its as-yet-untitled third studio effort. Metal fans can expect another groundbreaking and innovative record that will shake the foundations of the music scene!
“I am so excited that CAVALERA CONSPIRACY has signed with Napalm Records,” says Max. “This is gonna be our third album and it’s going to be a brutal grindcore style. I am already working on the riffs, and it is going to come out next year. Get ready to be brutalized by CAVALERA CONSPIRACY and Napalm Records!”
“I am very excited to record the new CAVALERA CONSPIRACY record,” adds Igor. “Me and Max have been planning this for a while, and all I can say is that it will be a ‘brutal’ record. Also I’m super proud to join Napalm Records, home of lots of amazing artists.”
“Blunt Force Trauma” sold around 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 122 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s debut CD, “Inflikted”, opened with 9,000 units to enter the chart at No. 72.
“Blunt Force Trauma” was once again tracked with ex-MACHINE HEAD/SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader, who co-produced the LP with Max. Logan also mixed the effort.
