According to Blabbermouth, previously available only on DVD, as part of the 2011 "Bars To The Stars" five-DVD box set, "A Twisted Xmas" features the classic tracks "I Wanna Rock" and "You Can't Stop Rock 'N' Roll" alongside such Christmas favorites as "White Christmas", "Deck The Halls", "12 Days Of Christmas", and many more. "O Come, All Ye Faithful" gets a very special Twisted treatment, with a music bed of "We'Re Not Gonna Take It". This is the kind of Christmas spirit that only Twisted Sister can unleash, produced, as always, by Twisted Sister bassist extraordinaire Mark "The Animal" Mendoza.
Vocalist Dee Snider (or Snider Claus, taking the stage in Santa's suit), guitarists Jay Jay French and Eddie Ojeda, bassist Mark Mendoza, and drummer A.J. Per took the merriment on the road in 2006, following the release of their holiday album "A Twisted Christmas". This tinsel-trimmed, heavy metal holiday extravaganza, filmed in Las Vegas, has also become an annual tradition in New York City.
"The Twisted Sister 'Live In Las Vegas' performance was the realization of all that the show could be", states French. "It brought together all the elements which made the 'Twisted Christmas' album such a huge success combining the unique transformation of some of the world's greatest Christmas classics done in pure heavy metal style with extraordinary visuals. The energy of the live performance on the recording reflects our own shock and awe as we, the band, watched our dreams unfold. It really was A December to Remember".
