Twisted Sister: "Under The Blade" Deluxe Edition

Eagle Rock Entertainment will release the landmark metal debut of 1982, "Under The Blade" by Twisted Sister on May 31th. The CD - originally produced by Pete Way of UFO - will also contain four tracks from their 1982 "Ruff Cuts" EP (never before on CD) as well as "Shoot ‘Em Down", an ‘82 live track from England’s prestigious Reading Festival. The lavish package features the original "Under The Blade" cover, which has not appeared on any domestic versions of the album until now, and reflects the original Secret Records track list and remastered audio mix.

The DVD contains the entire previously-unreleased Reading concert. Vocalist Dee Snider, guitarists Jay Jay French and Eddie Ojeda, bassist Mark Mendoza and drummer A.J. Pero gave the crowd something they had not exactly ever seen before. It was, for all intents and purposes, a coming-out affair for this great band. They play as if their life depends upon it. They play as if they have something to prove. And they did. They’re young, hungry, determined and wind up headbanging with a desperate ferocity usually reserved for those kinds of life-altering performances that make a band. This is one of those performances. The set concludes with a show-stopping version of 'It’s Only Rock “N’ Roll' as the band jams out with Pete Way and Motörhead’s Fast Eddie Clarke and Lemmy! The DVD also includes 40 minutes of newly shot interviews with the band about the recording of "Under The Blade" and the Reading Festival.
