Album of the Day
Under The Blade (1985 Remix)
Though comprised of street-toughened New Yorkers, Twisted Sister went to England in 1982 to record their debut album, UNDER THE BLADE. With UFO's Pete Way co-producing, the quintet fit perfectly into the New Wave of British Heavy Metal scene, and the collection rocks ferociously from beginning to end. Drawing on material honed through years of club gigs, frontman Dee Snider delivers a bracing set of originals including “What You Don't Know (Sure Can Hurt You),” “Destroyer” and the title track, and the band tears into them with focused fury. On the heels of Twisted Sister's commercial breakthrough, Atlantic Records issued a remixed version of UNDER THE BLADE in 1985 with extra track “I'll Never Grow Up, Now,” and we'll give the set a spin to wish guitarist Jay Jay French a happy birthday.
