All-Star Metal Tribute to Michael Jackson 'Thriller' Released
A full-scale metal tribute to Michael Jackson has been released today, covering every track from "Thriller" in its entirety. Musicians from bands including Guns N' Roses, Asking Alexandria, Motorhead, Kiss, Iron Maiden, Testament and Alien Ant Farm appear on the 13-track record. Producer Bob Kulick masterminded the record which features a pretty awesome lineup of metal artists. "We made these awesome songs kick ass while still being faithful to the original versions," he said. "Add killer players like Doug Aldrich, Billy Sheehan, Bruce Kulick, Rudy Sarzo, Tony Franklin, Craig Goldy, Bumblefoot, Phil Campbell and you've got some real MAGIC!" Bassist Tony Franklin who has worked with everyone from Jimmy Page to David Gilmour said: "The first thing I noticed was how easily these out and out pop songs translated to the metal genre. That is the sign of, one, a great song and, two, a great production and arrangement … it was very cool to see how the guest artists interpreted these songs as it brought out a different side of them - a side we wouldn't usually hear."
