Hope in Hell is the fifteenth studio album by Canadian heavy metal band Anvil. It was released on May 24, 2013 in Germany, May 27 in the rest of Europe and May 28 in North America. The album was produced by Bob Marlette, who, according to Steve "Lips" Kudlow, contributed a lot to songwriting and arrangements with his skills. The whole album was written by Lips and Robb Reiner alone. In some songs Lips was inspired by his love of "heavy rock 'n' roll", which made him feel he "found his way home" to the time when they did their first record, Hard 'n' Heavy. It is the only Anvil album to feature bassist Sal Italiano.
