Dee Snider has put together the soundtrack to his upcoming film "StrangeLand," and he's scored help from Marilyn Manson, Megadeth, Anthrax, Pantera, Soulfly, and some even more familiar faces from his own past.
Snider got back together with his old Twisted Sister pals to record the group's first new song in 12 years, titled "Heroes Are Hard To Find," for the soundtrack, which arrives on October 13 courtesy of TVT Records.
The album will also boast unreleased tracks from Sevendust ("Breathe"), Snot ("Absent"), and Coal Chamber ("Not Living"), in addition to tunes by Manson, Megadeth, Anthrax, Pantera, Soulfly, Nashville Pussy, (Hed) Pe, Crisis, dayinthelife, and Kid Rock.
As we first reported in June (see "Twisted Sister Frontman Dee Snider Readies Filmmaking Debut"), the former frontman penned the film's script, which paints a grisly picture of the underbelly of the Internet and body art. Snider, who co-produced
the film along with "Sling Blade" producer David L. Bushell, also appears in the film as an unsavory character named Captain Howdy.
Elizabeth Pena ("Lone Star," "Gridlock'd"), Robert Englund ("Nightmare on Elm St.," "Meet the Deedles"), and Kevin Gage ("G.I. Jane," "Con Air") also appear in the film, which hits theaters on October 2.
