During a recent interview with Iron City Rocks podcast, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider spoke about his latest solo album “For The Love of Metal”.

He explained that why he released a metal album, instead of mainstream rock album. He said that metal is his passion. Here’s the statement:

Now I got a hit metal record. It went to No. 20 on the Billboard charts. I haven’t been on the Billboard charts in 30 years. It’s been Top 10 metal record in the world since it came out, it was number one in America for six weeks.

People are going, ‘Holy fuck! Dee Snider is back.’ With the help of Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed and his whole bunch of contemporary metal artists, I’ve found my place among contemporary metal bands and with the contemporary metal audience.

My Spotify is 18-58, so I not only brought my old fans with me, but kids are getting turned on to Dee Snider, which Jamey said, ‘I’m telling you, man, with the right record, there’s a place for you.’ He was right. We’re going back into the studio this winter to start working on the follow-up album.

So, like I said, I’ve done different things, I’ve done a number of different projects from ‘Van Helsing’s Curse’ to Desperado to Widowmaker, then solo, odd solo records, like ‘Dee Does Broadway’. I did a mainstream rock record last year or whenever it was.

But with this record, ‘For The Love Of Metal’, this is my place, my passion. I just didn’t know how to make my mark within the current community. Jamey helped me figure that out. Now that I figured it out, I ain’t going nowhere.”

Dee Snider’s “For The Love Of Metal” album was released on July 27, 2018 via Napalm Records. You can watch the American Made’s music video from below.
