Heavy Metal frontman, actor and radio personality Dee Snider just released For The Love Of Metal Live, a live album and DVD/Blu-Ray set, via Napalm Records. We have the CD/DVD/Bluray combo on pre-order in our shop.
Since we're currently deprived of live concert experiences, For The Love Of Metal Live is a great substitute, combining behind-the-scenes footage, various interview clips, personal commentary and, of course, live performances.
The studio track "Prove Me Wrong" and the live video for "I Am The Hurricane", have already been released and now the video for the live album version of "For The Love Of Metal" has been made public.
Dee Snider says about “For The Love Of Metal” Live:
"When Jamey Jasta told me his idea for this song, I thought it sounded crazy. But after we were done putting it together and recording 'For The Love Of Metal', I knew we made a statement that not only needed to be made, but will speak for the heavy metal community for years to come. Because at the end of the day, we are all fucking metal! This is my new favorite song to perform live!"
The For The Love Of Metal Live DVD/Blu-Ray and accompanying live album (available in various formats, see below) features audio captured from several Dee Snider festival performances worldwide – from the United States to Europe, Australia and beyond.
In addition to tracks from Snider’s solo catalog like “I Am The Hurricane” and “For The Love Of Metal”, Twisted Sister favorites such as “I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, and even a cover of AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell”, the audio portion of For The Love Of Metal Live also features a brand new original studio track, “Prove Me Wrong”.
