DEE SNIDER – For the Love of Metal (Album Review)

I wasn’t sure just what to expect from Dee Snider, the Twisted Sister frontman with his new solo effort, For the Love of Metal. Let’s face it, I was slightly afraid.

Twisted Sister (Sweden Rock 2016 Spotlight)

It’s not any exaggeration when I say that I’ve been literally waiting all my life to see this band. Say what you will about the band, the music, and frontman Dee Snider.
