Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Anvil‘s set at Club Absinthe in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada back in June 2019:

“One thing that sets Anvil apart from their ’80s contemporaries is that they play a large amount of newer material. Anvil had a ten-song set on this night and 40% the songs that they played came from three of their last four studio albums. That’s impressive when you think that the band has released 17 studio albums. There was one song from Hard ‘n’ Heavy (1981), three from Metal On Metal (1982), two from Forged In Fire (1983), one from Juggernaut of Justice (2011), one from Hope in Hell (2013) and two from Pounding The Pavement (2018). Frankly, some of the newer songs such as “Badass Rock N Roll” and “Swing Thing” are some of the best songs that Anvil have ever written / played. My favourite tracks from Anvil on this night were the two just aforementioned ones as well as “Winged Assassins.” Two songs that I could have done without were the oldies “Oooh Baby” and “Free As A Wind.” Impressively, Lips noted to the audience that he is 63 years old yet there does not seem to be any signs of him slowing down in any way. What’s even more impressive is Lips‘ enthusiasm on stage after more than 40 plus years in Anvil.”
