If you read this week's interview with Anvil singer Steve "Lips" Kudlow, you know that the metal madman later became a driver for a catering service after Anvil's initial try at heavy metal stardom tanked.

Since the success of 2008's Anvil! The Story of Anvil, a documentary about the band's rise and fall, Anvil is back on the road. Last night, the Canadians came to St. Louis; locals Conquest (check out Conquest's in-a-forest music video here) and Gold Tooth opened. Todd Owyoung was there and brought back these photos. Below are a few highlights, although you can view the entire Anvil slideshow from last night here.
