Band Info


Anvil Rising came to life in early 2009, forged of the remnants of the medieval death metal band Dubhdroiacht, which itself was founded in 2002 and put to rest in 2007.

In between the end of Dubhdroiacht and the beginning of Anvil Rising, singer Florian, drummer Stefan and bassist Al kept on rocking and tried to find suitable guitar players.
During that period, several potential new members joined and left the band. These ongoing rearrangements led to a significant change in music style - from a folky medieval death metal bagpipe sound to thrashy melodic black death metal.

When Huu joined the band in early 2009, he perfectly filled the gap in the line-up. In this formation the band had its debut at a party in Bad Säckingen, in the summer of the same year.
Since then, the demo track " Rise" was recorded in the Rockfact Studio in Münchenstein BL, several new songs were composed and a concert was given at Villa Rosenau, in early 2010.

In spring of 2011, Al left the band to pursue his academic career in the USA. Left with only three metal heads, Anvil Rising was on the search for musicians anew.
In the autumn of the same year, Eveline joined the band on the guitar.
So from that time on, Anvil Rising was threatening the world with two guitars.

Only a few weeks later, former Black Swan Event bassist Buzz stumbled upon the slowly recovering band. After several beers, the decision was clear. Buzz would stay and support the band with his thundering bass lines.

Sadly, Eveline left the band again, in late winter of 2012. Thus, Anvil Rising is on the lookout for a second guitar, once more.

Anvil Rising was put to rest in February 2013. After several months on hold due to renovation works in the building, our rehearsal room was located, the band was unable to regain the motivation to go on...
