Live At Wacken

Twisted Sister - Live At Wacken: The Reunion - 2005 - Spitfire Records
Released as a dual disc this piece is a DVD on one side and CD on the other. This is a smart way for bands to get product into the audience hands these days as I feel it quells some of the bootlegging and downloading. It also seems to guarantees the item being purchased by fans of music video and audio alike. The CD portion is about 75 minutes long and includes music from Wacken in 2003 as well as a handful of numbers from 1980 and 1982. The numbers from 1980 are very classic to hear as this addition from Porchester NY was where some killer Sister live recordings were made. A lot of people might not realize that live concert broadcasts for Twisted were common place in their early years. Among my very favorite tracks are on this CD piece and those are “You Know I Cry” and “I’ll Never Grow Up Now”. It was very cool to have these tracks added to more recent stuff.
On watching the DVD portion which is done as a documentary and concert also you realize how much of a kick ass live band Twisted Sister was and still is after all these years. Once again wearing their signature makeup the group rockets through their most killer material such as “You Cant Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll” and “The Fire Still Burns”. Dee Snider is clearly the most energetic of the entire group, and one would expect this of the outspoken and impressive front man. This DVD showcases his and the bands excitement and enthusiasm for Hard Rock and Metal music. It truly is a must have for any Traditional (I mean “Old School”) fan and newbie alike. The Kids Are Back alright, so check ‘em out.
