This is Thirteen is the thirteenth studio album by Canadian heavy metal band Anvil. The original release of This is Thirteen has 13 tracks to coincide with the album title. Some tracks are included in the movie Anvil! The Story of Anvil, which devotes some time to the recording of the album, specifically the song "Game Over". In addition, "Burning Bridges" is heard in Final Destination 4, but is not on the soundtrack to that film. This is Thirteen sold over 1,400 copies in its first week of release in the U.S[2] and by 2009 it had sold over 7,300 copies in the U.S.
