QUOTES ABOUT THE BAND
Two Ton Anvil’s self-titled album on Dark Star is another worthy addition to the Windy City’s pantheon of crushing hard rock, with tight vocal harmonies and thick, head banging riffs. Feel the power of a the blistering riff attack rip through your bones as TTA take you on raw, molten ride in the title track and the standout cut, “The Wicked.” Full credit to vocalists/guitarists Chris Chubb and Brian Ericson for the razor-sharp production and engineering — this album explodes out of the speakers with polish and precision.

"A a metal fan and fellow Chicagoan it's refreshing to hear a band like "TWO TON ANVIL"! Two vocalists/guitarists putting down real vocals (Not that Cookie Monster Crap) and delivering the goods with a fat guitar sound. The bass slams to keep the rhythm tidy and the drums bring the right amount of kick and punch for the genera. "TWO TON ANVIL" gives us great modern sound while paying homage to the school of old. Got to give them top marks for this freshman effort. Can't wait to see them live. Cheers."
Prog Guitarist - i Tunes Review
"This is a group that shouldn’t go unnoticed. Two Ton Anvil will have no problem spreading far and wide with local and world wide success. There a unique band that combines several genres of rock/metal with an onslaught of dual guitars and dual singers. I urge anyone who’s into metal to pick up this debut release."
L6Man - i Tunes Review
"This is a really cool band as they mix traditional metal, some thrash metal and a touch of groove to come up with a really cool sound. The singers have great voices and fit the music perfectly as they have a strong voice, but also sing with an aggressive side, but in a tough guy mode. Just the right amount of passion as they belt out the tunes. Production is on the money as well. Songs and catchy riffs -you will find a ton of them on here. This is just a pure heavy metal delight"
Metal Core Fanzine
"After one listen to this release it will definitely spread far and wide. They base their foundation firmly in the Metal genre, but add onto it with many forms of Metal. There is a very cool Groove Metal vibe all throughout their songs. Adding in technical strong Thrash Metal riffs & well written Power Progressive Metal. They even add in a little bit of Modern Metal to round out their sound. The vocals are a crossover style with a lot of melodic type vocals. If you were to combine LAMB OF GOD, LIFE OF AGONY, HATEBREED, CROWBAR, MACHINE HEAD & TESTAMENT together, you'd get a good taste of this amazing band!"
Burton Wolf - Beowolf Productions
"The music is ironic, melodic, clean, with a hint of Bach in the rifts and trills. The vocals -all the right notes, it's almost uncanny how the harmony plays out so well. It speaks to the new generation of 'hand it over' zomboids"
Jon - Dallas, TX
"I think these guys are inventing a new genre of Metal Called Soldier music and I think it's pretty cool!!!"
Mike Cameo - Indie'sTop10
"Two Ton Anvil's music is Powerful, Heavy, Melodic and has gotten positive nods from those who have already heard and listened to it"
Mario Salazar - Chicago'sRock.com
“The modern metal sound of Two Ton Anvil hits straight to the brain. Chicago natives, Two Ton Anvil’s self titled debut L.P. on Dark Star Records crushed my high ‘Metal’ expectations with heavy yet marketable ‘Metal’ sound that is quickly becoming the talk of the Midwestern ‘Metal’ community. From the kick in the ass opening track, “What We’ve Made” to the surprise ending that cannot be ignored,[ Note: I was left shaking in my bones with the splendid and tactful deliverance of this popular song that remains static on most cover bands play list.] Two Ton Anvil march through this highly anticipated debut with a barrage of soulful crunch metal and fight anthem’s worthy of listen.”
Quentin "Q5" Quirk (MUEN Magazine)
“I’ve had this album for about a week now and whenever I put it in my car’s stereo and the song What We’ve Made starts playing, my right foot automatically thrusts down on the pedal.”
Rock in Review/DeathMetalBaboob.com
"Two Ton Anvil's CD is thirteen songs of aggressive, hook-laden, well-produced music, and I can't pick out a favorite song as they're all great for their own reasons. Bringing out the best of old school metal and mixing it with newer elements, I believe they have found the right formula that will make this album a success."
