Connect with Dee Snider: Facebook | Twitter |
Dee Snider is back, and he is back in an epic way, and that is a good thing! Snider is best known as the lead singer of 80’s band, Twisted Sister, but Snider has much more to offer than nostalgic Hair Metal. He has starred in several reality TV shows including: The Celebrity Apprentice, Gone Country with John Rich, MTV’s Rock The Cradle with his son Jesse and Growing Up Twisted, an A&E series featuring the entire Snider family and their Long Island lifestyle. He is also a frequent host on MTV Networks and his own long running nationally syndicated radio show, House Of Hair, heard on more than 200 stations in North America. Snider’s career as a voiceover artist has resulted in being heard in many radio and TV commercials, documentaries and a yearlong stint as the introductory voice on MSNBC. Snider is back to releasing albums, his latest, For The Love of Metal, hits hard with the sixty three year old Snider still showing his vocal chords are still in top form.

Snider has an outstanding band backing him, with two guitars that create energy and shred with conviction.
For The Love of Metal brings the elements that we love about metal, aggressive vocals, shredding guitars with solos and hooks, big driving bass and thumping drums. The songwriting is
rock-solid, with each of the twelve songs sporting solid forms and feels. Catchy melodies and big choruses are everywhere on For The Love of Metal. This is the heaviest album in Snider’s catalog, produced by J.Jasta, the lead vocalist of the hardcore band Hatebreed and sludge metal band Kingdom of Sorrow. Jasta also fronts metalcore band Icepick. That explains a lot, but it doesn’t lessen the fact the album is a wonderful collaboration with Snider’s vocals doing the work to get over the top and lead the tunes with energy and attitude. That’s the short of it!
