DEE SNIDER IS BACK WITH LEAVE A SCAR
I’ve talked at length about Dee Snider being my first interview when I was 19. If you’re a Patron, you’ve even heard the interview!
Leave A Scar is a continuation of For The Love Of Metal. I love that album, it was one of my favorite albums released back in 2018. I still play tracks off of it all time. When trying to select tracks to make my favorite of 2018, the whole album went into my playlist, I just love it that much.
I’ve listened to Leave A Scar several times now, and I find myself with that very same problem. For years Dee Snider was putting out what I didn’t want to hear from him. A lot of bands fall into this habit, and I get it. Once you have radio success, you want to reach the same heights again. So in Dee’s case, it was Broadway hits, covering popular songs, or making an album that sounded like what’s hip with the kids.
But I had always been longing for that angry Dee, the one we heard on the first few Twisted Sister albums. The one I heard on Stand By For Pain by Widowmaker. Jamey Jasta was the facilitator of seemingly opening Dee Snider back up to this angst-ridden, don’t give a damn attitude.
Leave A Scar continues Dee’s angry snarl. The album is anthemic, it’s catchy, and it’s heavy. If you’re a fan and loved For The Love Of Metal, this album is a no-brainer for you to check out. If you weren’t a fan of that album because of “all of the yelling” this album mixes up more of Dee Snider’s past with his present.
You can tell he really had a bigger hand in crafting these songs. From the including of Canibal Corpse’s George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher. To the melodies, they have Dee Snider written all over them.
Here is Dee Snider with the "Down But Never Out" off of his new album Leave A Scar.
