-Maximum Volume Music
"I haven't headbanged this much in a long time and I loved it. This is an exceptional album that fans of any genre should pick up. It has everything - great riffs, killer drums, heavy bass, and one of the greatest vocalists of all time."
"For The Love Of Metal is a sanctuary of crushing Heavy Metal ecstasy, proving Snider's immortal staying power and lust for the greatest music genre mankind has ever seen."
"A blisteringly heavy, catchy and contemporary metal record which, largely due to his performance, also manages to capture the dirty, raw energy of early 1980s Twisted Sister."
-Ghost Cult Magazine
"Dee Snider's love of metal is real and timeless."
"It is heavy, infectious and full of energy from start to finish and Dee Snider definitely has plenty of gas left in the tank."
"Dee Snider's For The Love of Metal shows that the mastermind is back with a vengeance. The new album brings him back as the beast is still reigning terror."
-Echoes and Dust
"A true modern classic"
