Fifth Full-Length Solo Album, “Leave A Scar”, out July 30 via Napalm Records.

Dee Snider says about “Down But Never Out”: “I pride myself on the fact that throughout the decades, my music has always tried to not only push back against all oppressors (in this case Covid-19), but also lift people up and encourage them to fight back. ‘Down But Never Out’ is a perfect example of this ethos.”

Dee Snider loves heavy metal – he named his last album For The Love Of Metal for Chrissake. Many might point to his defence of the genre’s very existence in the Supreme Court as his ultimate act of devotion, but perhaps even more admirable is his unwavering dedication to juggernaut riffs and anthemic choruses. “Leave A Scar” is business as usual; fist-pumping fun set to a soundtrack of heavy metal thunder, and a sense of dogged PMA delivered with sledgehammer subtlety on the likes of Silent Battles. It might be a pongier variety of cheese than the last album, but it’s easy to forgive when “Leave A Scar” serves as an unapologetic love letter to a genre Dee has served for almost four decades. The Corpsegrinder guest spot on Time To Choose even shows Dee isn’t sniffy when it comes to metal’s heaviest bastions.
