Dark Star recording artist’s Two Ton Anvil is lead and fronted by vocalists/guitarists founding members Chris Chubb and Brian Ericson. The duo decided to put their creative minds together in summer of 2007 during the pre-production of Chubb's other project (Passin Throu) titled "In Your Head." With the talent and endless creativity to deliver, Two Ton Anvil is some of the heaviest and marketable music that the duo has ever created. They completed their vision by adding drum guru Larry DeMumbrum and bassist Glenn Christon. Combining several metal genre’s like mid tempo heavy groove with fast thrash/speed metal there’s no question that tunes like "Victims," "What We’ve Made," and "Two Ton Anvil" are catchy tunes that keep you coming back for more. Maybe you want the speed of "Glass Houses" or the melodies of "Still Afraid." Whatever type of metal you're looking for; these guys seem to have it.
