Influential '80s progressive NWOSFHM (New Wave of San Francisco Heavy Metal) band ANVIL CHORUS has entered F8 Studios in San Francisco, California with engineer Nate Harlow to begin laying down drum tracks for its new album. The as-yet-untitled CD, which is being produced by guitarist Thaen Rasmussen and vocalist/ bassist Aaron Zimpel, follows the Rockadrome Records release "The Killing Sun", featuring re-recorded versions of many of the classic early-Eighties demo songs widely traded in the metal underground.
The new ANVIL CHORUS album will include the following songs:
* Deadland * Fall for Anything * Solar Flux * Blood Memory * Burn Forever * Senses Alive * Colossus * 20 Second Century * Moonstroke
