Anvil Frontman Slams Modern Metal (A Top Story)

On Friday Anvil Frontman Slams Modern Metal was a top story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock Radio) Anvil frontman Steve 'Lips' Kudlow says modern metal is lacking in melody and is often performed by "non-talented" artists. The outspoken singer believes his band's brand of old-school metal has died out in America and has been replaced by "un-musical" noise.

Lips tells Classic Rock's Dave Ling: "Sad to say that, in America at least, it's become virtually non-existent. That really distresses me.

It's just noise.
