No joke. The Mouse has just released an album of metal covers in North America after testing the waters in Japan last year. If you’ve ever believed that “It’s a Small World” and “Under the Sea” would be tolerable if they were just rocked up a little, your prayers have been answered.
The band, the D-Metal Allstars, features vocalist Mike Vescera (he of Obsession), bassist Rudy Sarzo (remember him from Ozzy’s and Quiet Riot>), guitarist John Bruno (Obsession again) and drummer BJ Zampa (once a member of Dokken).
Here’s a taste.
