Disney Classics Get the Heavy Metal Makeover In New Album

I’ve been going on a “songs turned into Heavy Metal” tear this week.   Something tells me this could easily be the best one yet.   If you’ve ever wished that the soft, beautiful, and joyful sounds of Disney would get turned into dark, overly loud, angry riffs of Heavy Metal then you’re in a for a treat.

Vocalist Michael Vescera, bassist Rudy Sarzo, drummer BJ Zampa and guitarist John Bruno join forces as the D-Metal Stars on “Metal Disney,” an 11-track album featuring metal covers of Disney classics. It’s not the group’s first foray into such territory; they are also part of the Animetal USA project where they cover popular anime songs. “Metal Disney” was originally released in Japan last year but is now available in North America.

Give it a listen below via Spotify. As strange as the concept is, it’s been proven that a ton of “nice” songs out there sound amazing when turned into Heavy Metal versions.   Personally I get excited just from the introduction alone.   I hope Jon Favreau listens to this and pulls a metal soundtrack version of The Lion King when it gets released.
