I guess after facing fan backlash from that last turd of a solo album, Dee's coming back with a full-on METAL album. No sound clips yet, but here's the cover and track list...


"For The Love Of Metal" track listing:

01. Lies Are A Business
02. Tomorrow's No Concern
03. I am The Hurricane
04. American Made
05. Roll Over You
06. I'm Ready
07. Running Mazes
08. Mask
09. Become The Storm
10. The Hardest Way
11. Dead Hearts (Love Thy Enemy)
12. For The Love of Metal

And here's 6+ minutes of Dee talking about how metal he is, yet surprisingly, not even a single note of new music. C'mon man!! Make your fans sit through 6 minutes of that and not even a little taste?


I'm not getting too excited about this one till I hear some music. His last solo offering was Dee's attempt to remain relevant to the modern rock crowd. By all accounts, it was not good. This time, it would seem as though he's catering to the modern metal scene with some of the folks (HateBreed, Arch Enemy, Lamb of God) contributing to this one.

But hey, at least the guy is trying. There's something to said for that I guess.

I liked that free tune he had a year or two ago I think it was called "To Hell & Back". Looking forward to hearing samples of this.

Dee Snider has never been relevant in my world.† The best thing I can say about Twisted Sister was that their videos contained cameos by the mutant villain from "The Hills Have Eyes".† I've just never "gotten" him or his band which is weird given my tastes in music.† But he's just never clicked for me.

I caught some of House of Hair this past Saturday night and he mentioned something about this. The last album sucked ass and the Dee does Broadway thing was obviously a waste of time too. so I am really hoping this one is legit. It's not like there is going to be any new TS music anytime in the next forever, so hopes are high.

That one was ok, but the album We Are the Ones was absolutely dreadful. I gave it a shot and was open to the style. It's the songwriting that made it unlistenable.

Try to make it through this song:



That was the encore during the tour for the album! He only played four TS songs on that tour and the rest of the set was a combination of the solo album and covers of Lit and Nine Inch Nails songs. I can't imagine he won over many fans along the way.

He's trying too hard in my opinion. He doesn't want to be labeled as "the Twisted Sister guy", but unfortunately to the general public and his fans, that's who he'll always be, no matter what he does.

The Broadway musical album? Who was that for exactly? Andrew Lloyd Webber fans that want to rock-out? Then that modern rock album. No one wants Dee to sound like Imagine Dragons. Not Imagine Dragon fans or Dee Snider fans.

This new one is a step in the right direction, but I gotta say, if it's a bunch of hardcore screaming or beauty/beast vocals, forget it. I'm out.

If he'd just release a decent 80's-ish rock album in the vein of TS or even Widowmaker, everyone would be happy. Stop trying to be something you're not Dee.
