Black Anvil at Santos (more)
CRAVEONLINE: So you guys are still at odds with the Black Metal purists?Following their killer showing at Santos Party House on 12/3 supporting Watain, Black Anvil has been added to the previously discussed Trap Them show at Cake Shop on 1/15/11. Tickets are still available.
PAUL DELANEY OF BLACK ANVIL: To an extent and I think we'll always be. When you read a review about us and New York Hardcore or Kill Your Idols is mentioned in the first sentence, it makes the metal kids pause. Then they feel like they have to read the rest of the review with a question mark on us. I tried to avoid that when Black Anvil first came out. I wanted to just release a record without anybody knowing who we were. That didn't happen. I guess we can't deny who we are and that it is important to what makes us up as people. At the end of the day we really don't care.
