I'll be interviewing these guys @ NAMM - so I watched the movie 'Anvil! The Story of Anvil' and all I can say is WOW. If you haven't seen it - I strongly recommend it. These guys are committed like no other. Worth the 1.5 hours! Fantastic rock n roll 'reality' movie! Must see!!
Sad indeed. But, what a reality check on music (musicians to be exact)! Even some of these 'reunion bands'. I think many of them are brought back from the dead by promoters interested in making a buck ... but to Anvil's credit - they stayed relevant because they endured. After watching the movie - I have a tremendous amount of respect for Anvil!
It's definitely a story of persistence, dedication, and most importantly a love of "metal". Two life long friends make a pact at 14 ( I think) to play until they were old men. Like TTK said they have never stopped making music, and not some reunion band thing. Just a story of childhood friends chasing a dream. Gotta respect them just for that.

Yes - stay tuned ... I was invited to their sound check Sat AM and then to their concert Sat @ 2:30.
Since I have a (grandfathered) unlimited data plan on my 4GLTE - I may stream the sound check across Skype so folks can check it out while it's happening. And, of course - the playback will go up Sat night.
