Today Canadian Metal heroes ANVIL release a new lyric video for the song “Die For A Lie” taken from their upcoming studio album Anvil Is Anvil.

 

Guitar player and singer Lips says about the song:

 

“Even in modern times mankind has not found peace. We cling to ancient beliefs and wage wars against each other in the names of God. We still have no proof or solid scientific evidence that our beliefs are in fact truth or fact. Killing each other over theories of origin…We are still in our infancy as far as civilization is concerned. We are slowly discovering our true factual origins and eventually we will discover the truths. A truth that can’t be denied is that people have lost the plot of what religion was supposed to be about….instead of spreading love and understanding we spread hate and ignorance…murdering each other because we believe one God and belief is better than another…when it all is likely bullshit!!!! Die for a Lie”

 

Drummer Robb Reiner adds:

 

” Die For A Lie”…Musically is a perfect Anvil template out of the classic blueprints, fully charged with riffs only found with Anvil, and drum arrangements very unique to Anvil style and sound!…..Lyrically its suggested for all those who are in belief of handed down broken telephone lines (Religion)….take another look!!!!!….
