Black Anvil

Black Anvil is a black metal band from New York, consisting of three guys who also play in the hardcore band Kill Your Idols, as well as other NYHC bands. This gives some the excuse to claim that Black Anvil isn't true black metal, which is short-sighted at best. Anyway, the trio debuted in 2008 with Time Insults The Mind, and even if this isn't their prime musical outlet, it's still pretty decent black metal, borrowing liberally from the Norse scene without cloning it. It's not all cold and frost, though -- "Release The Kraken" is more classic thrash, "L.T.H.L.T.K" is straight-up death'n'roll, perhaps betraying a bit of their hardcore roots, and there are noticeable Celtic Frost influences throughout (beyond just their decent cover of "Dethroned Emperor"). Relapse Records has signed these guys, re-released the album, and a newer album is on the way.
