It was 1980. Once adored by the public, disco had run its course and was gasping its final breath. The New Wave of British Heavy Metal was beginning to gain momentum abroad. America was quick to follow with its own emerging metal scene and it was clear that musically, something very big was on the horizon. Carl Canedy stood firmly at the forefront of this blossoming movement. Carl gave up his role as the first drummer of Manowar to establish, with the legendary David "Rock" Feinstein, the influential upstate New York hard rock power-trio, The Rods. Carl quickly gained notoriety for his prowess as a drummer, songwriter and producer. The Rods were America's robust answer to the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, sharing the stage with Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Ritchie Blackmore, Ozzy, and even a gang of fresh-faced kids that went by the name of Metallica. Through The Rods and his production efforts, Carl helped to usher in a new type of music which took the world by storm and defined a decade. He produced some of the earliest (and now considered iconic) thrash metal albums such as Anthrax's Fistful of Metal, Spreading the Disease and Armed and Dangerous, Exciter's Violence and Force and the debut classic from Overkill, Feel the Fire. With his involvement, upstate NY quickly became a recording mecca for emerging heavy metal bands. And to this very day, after more than 55 years as a dedicated musician, Carl continues to inspire drummers from all over the world. Tales of A Wild Dog is Carl's story - a tale of heartache, perseverance, family... and consequently, a saga detailing the rise of heavy metal.
