When Twisted Sister legend Dee Snider accepted the challenge of a solo album issued by Hatebreed front man Jamey Jasta there was a lot of anticipation around how it would turn out. Jasta is known for passionate he is and Snider appears to have combined this with his own love of music, energy and motivation to create a beauty of an album.
The Metal created by the band is heavy and powerful, with the unmistakable vocal caressing each track as the fantastic creation flows and twists across differing paces and styles of Heavy Metal as Snider is joined by numerous guests, including Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage), Mark Morton (Lamb of God) and Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy) whilst all being produced by Jasta to create this dream album.
The 12 tracks are all stand outs, with their own identity and Snider clearly feels comfortable with face melting guitars beside him on tracks such as ‘I’m Ready’ or leading the anthem that is ‘Tomorrow’s No Concern’. ‘Become The Storm’ has been released already and those who have heard it will have an idea of what the album will hold and know that this is one storm to go out and dance in.
For The Love Of Metal is top drawer from start to finish and will delight Twisted Sister fans, Rock fans, Metal fans and anyone in between. This will be at the top of many peoples charts of 2018 and rightly so what started as a challenge has become a true contender in Hard Rock and Metal.
For The Love Of Metal is released July 27th 2018 on Napalm Records.
