Stream the New Black Anvil Album As Was in Full


Black Anvil have already released three tracks from their new album As Was, and in our writeups of all three we’ve said pretty much the same thing: Black Anvil are really stretching out, experimenting, and evolving this time around. I’m not sure what else to say at this point. We like!

Now the full album is streaming at Noisey, giving us all a chance to digest it as one whole piece of art. My opinion is unchanged; this is my favorite Black Anvil album to date. But what about you? If you were already a fan of the band, are you into their new direction? If you weren’t a fan before, is the new material grabbing you in a way that their previous stuff didn’t? If you’re entirely new to Black Anvil, what do you think?

As Was comes out tomorrow (January 13) via Relapse Records. Pre-order physical copies here and a digital version here.
