BLABBERMOUTH.NET Presents: CHRIS JERICHO's Undisputed Metal #3

In concert with f.y.e., BLABBERMOUTH.NET is pleased to continue its series of guest posts written by FOZZY's Chris Jericho. Join us again in welcoming Chris with his personal take on a few heavy releases.

FOZZY's new album, "Do You Wanna Start A War", debuted at position No. 54 on the Billboard 200 chart. The CD, which was produced by FOZZY guitarist Rich Ward, was released on July 22 via Century Media.


KING DIAMOND - "Dreams Of Horror"

"You always know what you're gonna get from King... technical, intricate, hooky, creepy, unabashed HEAVY METAL, combined with one of the most unique voices in rock history. Always heavy, always crushing, always amazing. Two horns up!"


EXODUS - "Blood In Blood Out"

"When FOZZY toured with SLAYER a few years ago, I watched how seamlessly [EXODUS guitarist] Gary Holt adapted into that band, but in the back of my mind I wondered when we would see the return of my OTHER favorite Holt band. Now they've finally come back to rip our heads off with a whole slew of crunchy riffs, breathtaking speed and the second coming of Zetro Souza to the mic. EXODUS is back to spill some blood, baby!"


IRON REAGAN - "Tyranny Of Will"

"After a recent FOZZY show in Cleveland, I was asked to sign an IRON REAGAN album for one of the band members and instantly fell in love with the name. It brought back memories of other punk metal bands I was into in high school, like DEAD KENNEDYS, DAYGLO ABORTIONS and the CRO-MAGS. And their music comes from the same place as those amazing bands as well."


SISTER SIN - "Black Lotus"

"Those that know me would imagine I love this. I mean, what's not to love? Classic metal riffs, soaring vocals, big choruses… [This] has a total early '80s metal feel to it and it has balls, balls, I say. Which, looking at the singer, says a lot. She kicks ass."


SKELETONWITCH - "Serpents Unleashed"

"Been a fan of these guys for a while now. They take thrash and make it evil sounding, probably the best band out there doing that. They've consistently put out one killer record after the other and are road dogs. Pick this one up as a picture disc now. It'll look great in your collection."


REVOCATION - "Deathless"

"I heard a lot of buzz on these guys over the years. I checked out some of this album, and holy shit, these guys can play. I love the twin-guitar attack a how they bring the bass into the fold. I checked out their site and it looks like these guys are touring all over the world. Be sure to catch them live. I know I want to."

Pick up any of the selections above at your local f.y.e. store or online.
