HOLLYWOOD (January 28, 2005) – VH1 Classic Metal Mania: STRIPPED, an acoustic compilation of the biggest hard rock ballad hits of all time, is set for release February 8, 2005 on Sidewinder Music. Gathered from imports, live recordings, rare performances, hard-to-find albums, and six NEW recordings, STRIPPED is an extensive collection of acoustic tracks from hard rock’s multi-platinum metal gods.
While Heavy Metal artists were known for their hard-rocking ways and arena rock anthems, it was often their ballads that crossed over and gave them more popularity and exposure, as well as their highest chart positions and mainstream recognition.
STRIPPED offers fans intimate, one-of-a-kind versions of such classic cuts as Poison’s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” and Queensryche’s “Silent Lucidity”(from MTV Unplugged); Scorpions’ “Wind Of Change” (from Acoustica Live), Firehouse’s “When I Look Into Your Eyes” (from Good Acoustics), Warrant’s “I Saw Red;” Slaughter’s “Fly to The Angels” (from Stick It To Ya) and a solo performance by Kip Winger of Winger’s “Miles Away.” This rare power ballad compilation also features a live acoustic version of Tesla’s “The Way It Is,” and an a capella track of “More Than Words” from Extreme.
