Black Anvil at Santos (more)
Black Anvil

CRAVEONLINE: So you guys are still at odds with the Black Metal purists?

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.
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.

Cake Shop is Black Anvil's only upcoming show, but Trap Them is on the road now with Skeltonwitch, Misery Index, and Job For A Cowboy. Tickets are still on sale for the 12/16 show at Santos.

For a list of other recommended metal shows happening in NYC this month, check out the latest edition of Evillive.

Black Anvil releaesd Triumvirate via Relapse on 9/28. Listen to a recent audio interview someone recorded with Paul of Black Anvil (and posted to Youtube) below...

Black Anvil and KYI are both great. Enough said.

Gimme a band (semi-familiar at least) that Trap Them sounds like.

Entombed or Autopsy with a hardcore slant

TRAP THEM get compared to ENTOMBED a lot but I don't hear it. Over-hyped band. I will go for BLACK ANVIL.
