Two Ton Anvil is led and fronted by vocalist/guitarist founding member Reed McCallister. Reed formed TWO TON ANVIL in the summer of 2008. With talent and endless creativity to deliver, the Two Ton Anvil project is some of the heaviest and marketable music that Reed has ever created. Reed completed his vision by adding bassist Glenn Christon and drummer Marcus Lee. Combining several metal genres like mid tempo heavy groove with some fast metal there’s no question that tunes like "Victims," "Ballbreaker," and "Loyalty" are catchy tunes that keep you coming back for more. Maybe you want the speed of "Glass Houses" & "Murder Cage" or the melodies of "Still Afraid" & "Your Daze." Whatever type of metal you're looking for, these guys seem to have it.
The big production of Two Ton Anvil's material makes it obvious there is no lack of engineering and production expertise on this project. A very meaty mind-crushing sound with huge vocals and catchy melodies that are guaranteed to jar you head and blow your speakers out while tapping your feet and nodding your head. The band has consistently held multiple spots in the top ten lists of various websites claiming the #1 spot in several categories. Recently world released on www.indiestop10.com as featured artists in an interview with Mike Cameo. Listen to how many months in 2008/2009/2010/2011 that the TWO TON ANVIL has been showcased on Indie's Top 10 podcasts alone.
