Band biography
Anvil Bitch photo
Anvil Bitch was formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1985. They were a primite thrash metal band who were heavily influenced by Metallica's debut album "Kill 'em All". After a few demo recordings they secured a deal with Ann Boleyn's label New Renaissance Records who released the band's debut album "Rise To Offend" in 1986. The band played several local shows, among others at the Northwest Philadelphia Community Center and The Kennel Club in Center City.

Anvil Bitch was featured on the compilation Thrash Metal Attack in 1985 with the song "To the Grave" and "Speed Metal Hell" in 1986 with the song "Neckbreaker". They probably split up around 1988 / 1989 and in 1989 all band members became part of a new thrash metal band called Dominance who released several demos a few years into the 90s. Almost twenty years later the original line-up reunited for the release of the 2008 EP "Sanctify" and a couple of local shows.
