Re: [Academy of Anvil] Reveiws?
- Well, I remember 1983...and the critics. I had a friend that spoke English at the time and he used to translate to us the reviews. He died in a motorcycle accident in 1985. All the critics weren't good, and it's a fact. They didn't understand the whole album, and they reproach that the sound was too clear. Now with the Cds, we obtain exactly the same sound...and it is well appreciated.
I'm glad Lips isn't down, cos I am cripes! I don't understand they could write that. They have just listened with prejudices. It's like when you go at a party with the certitude that it's going to be boring....you don't have fun! You're mind was done before you arrived there....
The biggest support of a band is not a website, but friends and fans (family). A reviewer hates to be criticized. Just take your keyboard and type guys! Find where they are wrong and let them know that Anvil got supporters. Just to laff at their ignorance, cos they're clowns. Except Oli that had the reflex to answer me defending his point of view. I sent him LIPS's message to show that as a reviewer, it's important what he writes.
I answered them, it brings me peace of mind ... :) cos that's all I can do.

makes me wonder how someone could be so stupid. I'm not surprized,
you should read some of the reveiws for Forged in Fire, particularly
Kerrang in 83. It was chopped to bits, the reveiw slowed our sales
and caused extreme turmoil with our lable and management. In the end
we all know what happened, the album was received the best out of all
our cds but at the time it caused great dispair, to the point that it
effected our attitudes, especially Dave Allison. We lost a bit of
direction and then soon after our record deal.
I find it humorous that , Thomas at massacre said to me, I wish you
guys would deliver me another Forged in Fire....Be careful what you
If there is one thing I've learned, never read the comic book metal
mags, collect the pictures and throw away the articles. Even when it
is hype I tend to not beleive it. They always carve Motorhead good or
bad, I don't think Gene Simmons has ever read a good reveiw on
anything Kiss has ever done. I think if every article was bad we
would be the biggest thing since sliced bread. Here is hoping....lol
