The face, the voice, the sure-fire confidence and the stadium-sized anthems — all key components that make up the…
This month’s 190 Proof artist, Scattered Hamlet bring the southern rock groove and outlaw country attitude in equal measures – bald eagles and Harleys at the ready!
35 years following its initial release (out May 10, 1984 via Atlantic), Stay Hungry remains an important record for Twisted Sister and fans alike — still packing a punch and pissing off the neighbors as much as ever.
Darren Paltrowitz’s Paltrocast has moved to Wednesday and today, in the podcast’s 8th episode, we hear from singer/songwriter Greg Holden, renowned rocker Dee Snider and comedian Greg Behrendt.
Dee Snider’s first metal album is a lot of fun. Thought there are hard-hitting tracks and classic Dee vocals, overall it falls a little short of the mark.
Recorded at A&M Records Studio in May 1985, “Stars” was helmed by Ronnie James Dio to help raise money for famine relief in Africa.
Bloodstock returned in August with some new bands, some old favourites and three massive headliners. Simon Douglass joined the masses for the metal weekend of the year. Read his review inside…
Dee Snider is continuing to make music on his own, releasing “To Hell and Back” exclusively via his website, www.deesnider.com, as a free download.
I must admit, I’m a huge fan of what I like to call pure rock and roll. Now many would, at least back in the ’80s, have classified a Twisted Sister concert as a metal show, but last night it was more of a straight up, in your face rock show, complete with openers Killcode and Adrenaline Mob.
This disc was recorded live in 1984 when Twisted Sister was at the height of their success and were dominating the airwaves. I have been a huge Twisted Sister fan since their early bar days and I have seen them on numerous occasions. I can say with all honesty that this disc comes about as close as you can get to actually being there in the audience.
The man, the legend, Mr. Dee Snider (Twisted Sister’s unmistakable front man) was kind enough to show PureGrainAudio some love back in 2009. There’s no way you can argue with this man, so let it be forever known that even Dee wants to ROCK with us! Be sure to check out Dee’s new studio album Dee Does Broadway and his his first ever autobiography, ‘Shut Up And Give Me The Mic’.
To date, Double Live is by far my favorite DVD release from Eagle Rock Entertainment. As a huge Twisted Sister fan I found this package to be utterly fantastic. It’s a two disc set featuring two performances filmed 19 years apart. It also includes interviews with the band discussing their reunion as well as the personal impact the events of 9/11 had on the members. I’ve seen the band live countless times and while nothing can replace attending a concert itself, this DVD comes damn close at capturing the passion and intensity of a Twisted Sister show.
Club Daze Volume 1 contains rare or never released studio versions of original songs that Twisted Sister played while performing on the club circuit from 1978-1981, before they became household names and regular staples on MTV. Included on this disc are songs such as “Under The Blade” and “Shoot ’em Down” which were fan favorites at a Twisted Sister shows across the New York Tri-State area.
