Napalm Records [Release date 27.07.18]
Former Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider’s forthcoming fourth solo album “For The Love of Metal” is his heaviest yet, obviously, he is well known as a great hard rock singer but this shift to metal actually works well with his voice.
The album is produced by Hatebreed vocalist Jamey Jasta and features appearances from the likes of Mark Morton (Lamb of God), Howard Jones (Killswitch Engage) and Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz who duets with Snider on “Dead Hearts (Love Thy Enemy)”. With a modern metallic sound, the twelve tracks on “For The Love of Metal” open with the speed and dual guitars of “Lies Are A Business” and end with the albums bruising title track.
Between the two there are such gems as “Mask”, “Become The Storm”, “American Made” and “Roll Over You”, however, the album doesn’t really let up in intensity from beginning to end, in that Jasta has done a great job in pushing Snider to a different place stylistically.
It certainly is an album that is light years from previous Broadway style and Christmas offerings and could herald the rebirth of one of rock’s most interesting characters. ***
