SHADOWS FALL vocalist Brian Fair recently explained to ElectricBasement.com why the band chose to cover the DANGEROUS TOYS song "Teasin' Pleasin'" for the Japanese version of their new album, "The War Within". "I've been a huge fan of that band since I was young," he said. "One time when we were out with KING DIAMOND I was wearing a DANGEROUS TOYS shirt on stage in Austin. He heard about it, checked out the band, and ended up emailing us. We became friends online. We were thinking what we wanted to do for the bonus track and decided to do a TOYS song and see if [DANGEROUS TOYS vocalist] Jason [McMaster] wants to do some vocals. Originally we just sent him a DAT and told him to record everything and we'll figure out what we want to use and what we don't. We got the tape back of him doing the whole song and we said, 'Fuck that, we're done.' We dropped the tuning a little bit, made it heavier, and his voice was just unbelievable. We were in Austin on the last tour and got him up on stage and did it live. It was so much fun. There were only about 10 people in the audience who knew what was going on, but they loved it."Read the entire interview here.
