Original guitarist Doug Piercy rejoins Anvil Chorus!

Thaen Rasmussen Doug PiercyAnvil Chorus guitarist Thaen Rasmussen and bassist/vocalist Aaron Zimpel have rejoined forces with former 80s classic line-up guitarist Doug Piercy (ex-Heathen). The SF bay-area guitar team of Rasmussen and Piercy was one of the greatest under the radar metal duos of the 80s. The first explosive performance of this newly reunited guitar team was back on February 24th when they played with Death Angel at Slims in San Francisco.

The group is currently working on the follow up to 2009’s phenomenal return to action, “The Killing Sun.” While this album featured original tracks written during the band’s 80s heyday, the new album will contain all newly written tracks such as Solar Flux, Blood Memory, Colossus, Moonstroke and more and promises to be another thundering release that solidly establishes the group’s return.

Watch for the long-awaited double vinyl release of “The Killing Sun” coming later in 2012!

Anvil Chorus reviews

Anvil Chorus Killing Sun CD

Anvil Chorus

“These new recordings on this disc are representative of some of the best moments of those years when Metal was evolving from the depths of obscurity to becoming the huge force it was in the eighties. This Music is Awesome!” – Ron Quintana KUSF/Metal Mania


“Just imagine what it would have been like if there had only existed a demo version of “Saints In Hell” up until now and Priest had finally recorded it like the monster you knew it was and laid it on you full-force. That’s what this sum-bitch is like. Ignoring “The Killing Sun” is not an option. Buy it now.” – Raysrealm
