TWISTED SISTER helfen uns mit ihrem Song "Heavy Metal Christmas (The Twelve Days of Christmas)", uns jetzt schon auf das kommende Weihnachtsfest einzustellen. Auf der MySpace Seite der Band gibt es außerdem noch "White Christmas" und "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" zu hören.Mit "A Twisted Christmas" kommt in Kürze ein komplettes Album auf den Markt, das die alten Weihnachtsclassicer in bester Hardcore-Manier zum besten gibt.
TWISTED SISTER Frontman Dee Snider gibt folgendes Statement:
"We've been in the studio I don't know if you heard about this. It came to us that when it comes to Christmas, there's every kind of music Christmas records there's jazz, there's barbershop quartet, there's classical, there's easy listening but there's no old-school metal. And we have just finished recording 'A Twisted Christmas' 10 traditional Christmas songs done '80s-metal style. I'm telling you it works. It's unbelievable. It rocks.
"You know what? Years ago, back in the '80s, I was saying, 'Man, it would be great if all the bands got together and we each took a Christmas song and did it our own way.' So what J.J. [French, guitar] knowing this is the last year for me said, 'What do you think about doing a Christmas record?' And I said, 'You know what? That could just be insane enough to be successful.' So we went in and the stuff works, man. We've got an AC/DC-type version of 'Silver Bells', a MAIDEN version of This is what we did: We approached it like, 'How would these bands do it?' A MAIDEN version of 'White Christmas', THIN LIZZY, a JUDAS PRIEST 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus'. It rocks. Me and Lita Ford did a duet, power ballad-style, on 'I'll Be Home for Christmas'; it came out incredible."
