Megaforce is excited to release Grandpa Metal, by comedian and heavy metal fan Brian Posehn. Grandpa Metal will be available everywhere on February 14th, 2020!
“The original concept for this album came from bands like Scatterbrain and S.O.D., and even Cheech and Chong,” says Posehn. “They all made music that was fun and funny, heavy music that also made you laugh. I wanted this to be the ultimate comedy/metal record, a loving record that made fun of some of the things in heavy metal, so I called all my friends and asked for a bunch of favors. There’s a Satan song, and there’s a Viking song, there’s one song that sounds like Black Metal, and then there’s one that sounds like a Van Halen party song. The intention was just to make a funny metal/comedy record for people who like both of those things.”
Grandpa Metal is packed with cameos from legends in the metal world including Scott Ian (Anthrax) Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy) Brendon Small (Dethklok) Corey Taylor (Slipknot) Michael Starr (Steel Panther) Johan Hegg (Amon Amarth) Gary Holt (Slayer) Kim Thayil (Soundgarden) Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy), Chuck Billy (Testament) Steve “Zetro” Souza (Exodus) Jill Janus (Huntress) Rob Cavestany (Death Angel), and more.
AND…there’s a sick cover of A-ha’s Take on Me.
