I had brought the little money I had on the family travel north through Canada trip in the early 80's. Metal was my only interest.  Metal on metal then specifically..  Didn't want to buy a cheap tape to play immediately,  I wanted a vinyl album to clean and record to tape but there was no choice.  sorry edit please...

Edit:  I had never heard of them before stopping at the, gas station?  It had to be a gas station, when I saw the tape,  they were obviously metal. Had to have it. Then riding in the car Walkman blowing my mind.  I remember eventually feeling confused because they were mostly very heavy but they had songs about girls too.  I know their history of gaps after key albums but I believe that confusion is why they didn't succeed more.  But I love them for it.

Me and Sean are seeing Anvil at Turf Club in April, yes 2019. Metal on Metal and Forged in Fire 1982 and 1983 are incredible sounding albums to this day. Seen the movie?

It was a good show. Sean said there was way too much smiling for a heavy metal concert - on and off stage. The bass player totally gets it. They opened with March of the Crabs followed by Mothra, and after that they were warmed up, speachless. In the end four songs from Metal two from Forged. Unfortunate Born to be Wild encore
