Recording: Iowa Anvil. Label: J-Shirt Records. Release Date: 1. uly. The closest thing to this album would be an Elliot Smith record, without as much power. But the potential is there. I think O'Callaghan could develop, just as any musician can, into something much more. I hear Unwound in this sometimes, and there have also been Beatles comparisons, although I don't hear that. There have been mentions of Nirvana as well. Hmm. I don't know about that either.
Iowa Anvil is not a perfect album by any respects. Louis O’Callaghan does wear his influences proudly, tattooed more to his forehead than perched on his sleeve, and the somber sad-sack lyrics often reach abominable lows. Yet, there is something heavy in the Graze, a weight that may continue to pull O’Callaghan even deeper into America’s ancient soil and closer to creating a truly mesmerizing piece of music. As a rule of thumb, my limit is two. There are ten songs on this record.

Iowa is the second studio album by the American heavy metal band Slipknot. Released by Roadrunner Records on August 28, 2001, it was produced by Ross Robinson and Slipknot. The title derives from the band's home state, Iowa, which members have stated is one of their greatest sources of inspiration. With much anticipation for the album following the success of their 1999 self-titled debut, pressures on the band were high
First album from Seattle one-man recording project the graze. praise should be lavished on the Graze, the one-man project of songwriter Louis O’Callaghan. The band’s self-released debut, ‘Iowa Anvil,’ is full of tender-hearted laments and wrenching ballads. His tentative voice holds the perfect blend of agony and restraint. Tizzy Asher, Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Iowa Anvil (J-shirt Records) is one of the most promising indie rock releases since Neutral Milk Hotel’s In the Aeroplane Over the Sea and one of the most inspired since Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
