Review: DEE SNIDER – ‘For the Love of Metal’ [Official Videos]

‘For the Love of Metal’ is the highly anticipated solo album from the legendary, Dee Snider. Releasing on July 27, 2018 on Napalm Records, This is his latest record after 2016’s ‘We Are the Ones’. Snider is most well known for being the vocalist for the iconic metal band, Twisted Sister and host and radio personality of the very popular show, The House of Hair. This new album is what we needed; gut busting, new music from one of the great voices in metal. The direction of the album is very forward and goes back to the classic sounds of 80’s metal. This whole album is filled with killer riffs and hard hitting deafening percussion. I was so excited to hear that he was coming out with some new material. My mind was overwhelmed when I first clicked play and it remained that way throughout the whole album. Continue reading

DEE SNIDER – Releases Official Lyric Video For “Tomorrow’s No Concern”

Hard rock icon DEE SNIDER has released the official music video for the new track Tomorrow’s No Concernfrom his upcoming album ‘For The Love Of Metal’.  The album sees Dee team up with HATEBREED frontman, Jamey Jasta, as producer and makes good on an idea discussed on Jasta’s weekly podcast.

Watch “Tomorrow’s No Concern“at this link.

DEE SNIDER comments on his new single:

” ‘Tomorrow’s No Concern’ is the perfect first single off of my new album ‘For the Love of Metal’.  Lyrically it’s about me living for today, not in the past.  So many people waste their lives away remembering the “glory days”.  While I am proud of all that I’ve done, I’m more interested and excited about what is happening now.  In the song I urge the listener to do the same; live in the moment and don’t let the past – good, bad or indifferent – or what might or might not happen in the future ever slow you down!

‘For The Love Of Metal’ features contributions from Howard Jones (ex-KILLSWITCH ENGAGE & current LIGHT THE TORCH frontman), Mark Morton (LAMB OF GOD), Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY), Joel Grind and Nick Bellmore (TOXIC HOLOCAUST) and Charlie Bellmore (KINGDOM OF SORROW).

Preorder ‘For The Love Of Metal’.

Jamey Jasta comments on the album:

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. Metal brings us all together and with Dee still at the forefront, it’s a great time to be a fan of heavy music!

Review : CANDLEMASS – ‘House Of Doom’

Coming May 25 via Napalm Records is the new EP: ‘House of Doom‘ from legendary doom metal band ‘CANDLEMASS!’ Clocking in at under 30 minutes, ‘House of Doom‘ is a quick but thoroughly enjoyable listen! We start things off with the title track which for my money has everything that an old school Doom Metal fan could ask for: Insanely catchy riffs, powerful vocals, and Sabbath style rhythm! This is easily the best Doom Metal anthem since “Doom over the World” by the now defunct ‘Reverend Bizarre.’

Review: KAMELOT – ‘The Shadow Theory’ [Official Videos]

 

Strictly from their sound, it is almost hard to believe this symphonic power metal outfit comes from Tampa, Florida. Since 1991, founder and guitarist Thomas Youngblood has been the mastermind behind the entity that is Kamelot. A change of frontmen in 2011, however, reignited a flame for the band. Swedish singer, Tommy Karevik (Ayreon, Seventh Wonder) took the place of Roy Khan and has since elevated Kamelot to exponential heights. ‘The Shadow Theory’ is the twelfth album in their discography, released on Napalm Records and produced by Sascha Paeth who has been perfecting their sound since 1999’s The Fourth Legacy.
