About AMPU

Metal is TIMELESS, Family is FOREVER.

The Official Anvil Metal Pounders Union Worldwide is the OFFICIAL fan club of Canada’s Metal power trio, ANVIL.  The original incarnation of the Metal Pounders Union was founded in the early 80’s.  In 2011 is was reincarnated with the intention of fulfilling it’s original vision of uniting fans for the cause of supporting Anvil and the Heavy Metal genre.  It’s a place where you can come to feel a sense of belonging. We all want to belong to something, that’s what it’s turned into. We are a special family, we are all connected to each other.
