Dee Snider Shares ‘For the Love of Metal’ Album Art + Track Listing
Dee Snider's days of makeup and tattered pink tops are long gone as the singer recently put Twisted Sister to bed. He's kept busy, releasing his solo record, We Are the Ones, in 2016 and has a new one on the horizon featuring a slew of guests.
"I believe there’s something for every hard rock and metal fan on this record and I cannot wait to unleash it on the world July 27," exclaimed Snider when discussing For the Love of Metal. Snider was flanked by a strong supporting cast with Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta overseeing the production.
“I’m so happy and proud to have been a part of this project. Dee Snider is an American original; there is no other voice like his on earth, his power and passion really shine through on this album," states Jasta. "Metal brings us all together and with Dee still at the forefront, it’s a great time to be a fan of heavy music!”
Former Killswitch Engage and current Light the Torch singer Howard Jones, Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton, Arch Enemy vocalist Alissa White-Gluz, Toxic Holocaust's vocalist, guitarist and bassist Joel Grind and drummer Nick Bellmore and Kingdom of Sorrow guitarist and bassist Charlie Bellmore all contributed to the album.
Jones added, “To be given the chance to write for AND sing with Dee Snider, one of the men responsible for shaping heavy music as it is today, is an absolute honor. The voice, the mind, the swagger ... the man is one of a kind.” Meanwhile, White-Gluz commented, “I am honored and humbled to sing alongside such a truly unique and talented soul. I love that Dee Snider has continued to shock people for decades just by being himself. I can’t wait for everyone to hear our duet! It was no easy task matching up to Dee’s level of vocal prowess but I was happy to accept the challenge and I’m in love with the results!”
