He as well comments about For The Love Of Metal: “This is a really incredibly exciting album that I did not expect to make, especially at this point in my life. Jamey Jasta challenged me to make a contemporary rock record. … and I rose to the challenge!“ The result is a full-on anthemic metal album indulging in modern heaviness without neglecting Snider`s Twisted Sister roots. One of the most powerful voices in rock & heavy metal is back…and more ferocious than ever!
