Dee Snider releases video for “American Made”
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has released a video for the song “American Made” from his new solo album For The Love Of Metal, which was released via Napalm Records on July 27, 2018.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of For The Love Of Metal:
“For The Love Of Metal came to fruition when Hatebreed frontman, Jamey Jasta, suggested to Snider that he do another record which would be contemporary metal and Jasta offered to be a part of it. Snider mulled it over and then took Jasta up on the offer. Dee relinquished control of the songwriting and gave the reins to Jasta who would collect the songs and bring them to Dee and determine which would be the best fit for the album. While For The Love Of Metal isn’t a ‘perfect’ album, it’s got some pretty damn fine moments on it. In addition to guest songwriters, Jasta hooked Dee up with a band to cut the tracks. The result is a bombastic sounding album that sounds akin to Dee’s Widowmaker album Stand By For Pain. While that wasn’t as accessible as the Widowmaker debut album, it was metal and after We Are The Ones, he can only go up from there.
The standouts on For The Love Of Metal include the ferocious “I Am The Hurricane,” the patriotic and anthemic “American Made” and the duet “Dead Hearts (Love Thy Enemy)” featuring Arch Enemy singer Alissa White-Gluz, which works incredibly well as ‘the’ ballad for an album like this. The jury is out if For The Love Of Metal will bring in ‘nu-fans’ in droves. Given the state of the music industry, it’s highly unlikely. Who wouldn’t pull for Dee Snider to get a little pop much like Tony Bennett did back in the ’90s? Don’t hold your breath. For The Love Of Metal did however offer Dee Snider an opportunity at redemption. This is very much a ‘metal’ record.”
