Twisted Sister: Live At The Astoria

After the turn of the new millennium, there was a resurgence in the popularity of the metal that dominated the scene 20 or so years prior. One of the bands that reemerged was the demented Dee Snyder and Twisted Sister. Among the most popular acts of the era, they were the glam rock poster boys. While many bands were trying to refine their act and become the slick flavor of the month, Twisted Sister kept hammering out the anthem like rock and roll that brought them to the forefront.

So, in 2004 the band does a pay-per-view concert at the Astoria in London England. In all their glory, Twisted Sister tears up the place with its high energy brand of metal. Filled with all the fist pumping teenage angst anthems, this is a disc that will have you turning the volume control way to the right as you are reminded just what drew you to the metal scene in the first place. Running through all of their hits, the band gives you just what you would expect in this kind of album. So crank it up and make sure that anything you don't want permanently damaged is stored away in a safe place!

On the DVD side, Dee's fishnet and leather covers a little more territory these days. The crowd seems to be reaching for their sore backs after pumping the heavy metal horns a few times and the band in their between song banter has a penchant to attack the record companies to the point of extreme. Setting that aside you get Dee and the boys in all their hair shaking frenzied splendor. The band is very tight as you might expect after 30 years together off and on. It's a show that you will occasionally pull out but for the most part, the CD covers all the music and eliminates the ranting of the band. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip down memory lane with Dee and Twisted Sister. Of course, it had to be at full volume!!!
