Twisted Sister. Aujourd'hui, ce nom est connu de tous les amateurs de musique musclée. Le groupe est même carrément devenu culte. Mais il n'en a pas toujours été ainsi.

Car, on le sait moins, Twisted Sister a connu des débuts bien difficiles.
C'est sous le nom de Silver Star que ce qui va devenir Twisted Sister voit le jour en 1972. L'année suivante, les musiciens qui le composent accueillent en tant que guitariste un nouveau membre, John Segall (alias Jay Jay French). Celui-ci venait d'auditionner pour un certain Wicked Lester, un autre petit groupe new-yorkais, qui connaîtra un certain succès l'année suivante sous le nom de Kiss.
C'est à ce moment que Silver Star change de nom pour Twisted Sister. Après de multiples changements de musiciens, Jay Jay se retrouve également en charge des vocaux. En 1975, c'est Eddie Ojeda, un ami de longue date de Jay Jay, qui rejoint le groupe en tant que second guitariste et second chanteur. Le groupe est alors surtout influencé par le Glam Rock (Slade, Mott The Hoople, David Bowie, New York Dolls). C'est en 1976 qu'est engagé Daniel "Dee" Snider en tant que chanteur. Avec lui, Twisted Sister prend une direction plus heavy (AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper sont alors les influences principales), tout en restant fan du mouvement Glam. Le groupe commence à pas mal tourner aux States et se fait connaître. Ce n'est qu'en 1982 que le line-up définitif voit le jour avec l'arrivée de AJ Pero à la batterie et Mark Mendoza à la basse. C'est à cette époque aussi que le groupe travaille son image avec des maquillages outranciers, rappelant les groupes de glam mais en plus moche.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must own for every SMF! 4 juin 2011
Par C. Allanach - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Let's clear a couple of things up first. For starters, the artwork associated with this release shows the 1985 US remix version artwork. The artwork that is actually on the package is, in fact, the original artwork used (blue Twisted Sister logo) for the original UK Secret Records release from 1981. This is also the re-mastered version of that same original Secret Records mix so for those of you that never cared for the US remix (like me), then you're in luck!

OK. Now down to business. "Under the Blade" has never been known for its great production values. It's more about the energy and the rawness of the music. This album always has had and still does have a very New Wave of British Heavy Metal sound and feel to it. If you love the first Iron Maiden album or that first Def Leppard record or some of those Saxon albums, then this one will fit right in with your collection. The re-mastering brings out more low-end than the original version and it sounds a bit more full. The drums really benefit as they sound more powerful and the sound overall has a little more "beef" to it. Short of the band going back in and re-recording this album, this is probably about as good as it's going to get. And even if they did re-record it, I highly doubt that they would be able to re-capture the energy that they had during the original recording. And I can't see how Dee would ever re-create those screams he lets out during the title track. The second one has to be one of the greatest screams in rock and roll history! I'm not going to go thru a track by track review because if you've gotten to this point, you're already familiar with them. But if you've got a nice sounding system and a subwoofer, "Destroyer" will rattle your windows and piss off the neighbors!

The re-mastering alone is worth picking this one up for true SMF's but let's be honest. If you're a true SMF, you're here for the extras and they are definitely worth the price of admission! Having the original "Ruff Cutts" recordings included as bonus cuts is a great addition! The "Ruff Cutts" versions of "What You Don't Know" and "Under the Blade" might even be better than the album versions depending on your point of view. Then for good measure, they throw in a live version of "Shoot `Em Down" from Reading. Now this is not the same version that was originally included on a 2 album collection of songs by all of the bands from Reading 1982 but it's still great just the same and a nice bonus.

But if you're a lifelong SMF, let's face it. You've already got "Ruff Cutts" as well, right? Well, you're in luck!! The 2nd disc is a DVD of the entire Reading performance from 1982. If the re-mastering and bonus tracks weren't enough, this disc is definitely the deal breaker! Nobody had this prior to this release! To watch professionally recorded footage of Twisted Sister prior to the release of their first album is more than worth the price of admission! To top it off, this is the show that Lemmy, Fast Eddie Clarke, and Pete Way join Twisted on stage for their version of "It's Only Rock `n Roll (But I Like It)". There have been bootlegged audio recordings of this show around for years but to finally see the video is pure magic! And to watch Twisted Sister take on a hostile crowd that did not know them and still win them over is great to watch! The band was full of energy and aggression on this performance and showed that "take on the world" attitude that they had before breaking it big with "Stay Hungry". To top it off, there are some great current interviews at the end of the DVD with all band members about their memories from this Reading show and the recording of the "Under the Blade" album.

Bottom line, if you're a fan of early `80's NWOBHM or a true SMF that actually likes more than "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock", then buy this CD/DVD!!!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 5 stars for the music, -2 stars for the remastering job. 25 janvier 2006
Par A. Kanish - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I was fortunate enough to buy the original Secret Records release on vinyl as an import from Italy back in the 80s and I am so happy that I still have it because I really don't like what was done to this album in the remastering process. All of the raw intensity has been stripped away in favor of way too much reverb on the drums and vocals, ostensibly to "clean up" the sound. UTB was not a clean-sounding album to begin with and that was part of why it succeeded so well. Sadly, this happens with way too many remasters -- reverb effects or drum triggers that did not exist in the original production are added supposedly to modernize the production and, in every case where this is done, it detracts from what made the album so great so many years ago. I don't know if a CD has ever been released with the original mixes of these tunes, so you may have no choice but to hear it only in its remastered form. Fortunately the tunes are great and, if you've never heard what the original mix sounded like, you won't know what you're missing anyway so definitely buy it on the strength of the tunes. Me...I'll stick to my vinyl copy thank you very much.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "A Must For Twisted Sister's Loyal Fans". 1 juin 2011
Par M. Mariba - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The heavy metal band from the 80s Twisted Sister has re-issued their 1982 debut album 'Under The Blade'. It's digitally well remastered plus 4 never before released tracks from the Ruff Cutts EP, namely "What You Don't Know Can Hurt You" (marginally better than the album version), "Shoot 'Em Down" (great version, wonderful guitar & melody. Much better than the album version.), "Under The Blade" (great melodical guitar, again much better than the album version. The base track of this song sounds like that of U2's "Bullet The Blue Sky" which was released only later in 1987, so may be U2 was inspired by this track) & "Leader Of The Pack" (cover version of this 60s classic). There is also "Shoot 'Em Down(Live at Reading)" (a great live version, they can really play magnificently live!). The tracklisting used in this re-issue is the UK version (Twisted Sister was for practical purposes overshadowed by the legendary heavy metal band Kiss in the US & they 'felt they had more success' in UK & Europe, hence may be this preference). The bonus DVD has 1982 live at Reading concert (they really can have fun & entertain, great perfomances considering this was at their neophyte year. This material has never been released before plus some recent interview of this band). On overall, loyal fans of Twisted Sister now have the band's debut album remastered (UK tracklisting) plus 4 previously unreleased Ruff Cutts EP tracks & a bonus DVD of their performance at Reading in 1982, a must sought after collection by all Twisted Sister fans.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Twisted Sister's Most Metal Release. 7 mars 2009
Par James Simpson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Most people today remember Twisted Sister as the spearhead of the Hair Metal movement with there poppy bubble gum Hard Rock anthems all over Rock radio. In truth the band dates back to the 70s and began life, first as a general Hard Rock Glam act before vocalist Dee Snider arrived and introduced the music of Judas Priest, Ac/Dc, Black Sabbath and the NWOBHM.

This debut is far removed from what will follow two albums later with 1983's breakthrough album, "Stay Hungry", containing a sound that was raw and mean, stripped down and primal. The sound was Heavy Metal and if you were there in 1982, you probally would have thought this band to be the next big band in Metal.
Even if they did not rock quite as heavy as here, Twisted Sister still remained one of Metal's best loved bands of the 80s, and this was the masterpiece of there catalouge.

Each track is a classic of it's kind:

What you Don't Know, Sure Can Hurt You-Awesome Cooper inspired Heavy anthem(echoes of his "Hello Hooray!") that welcomes us into there Metal world. Rebellious and insidious, this is a perfect way to set up the heavy album. One of there best tracks.

Bad Boys of Rock and Roll-A more standard Rock and Roll anthem, this feels more akin to there sound of later but still carries the sound of there 70s influence. Good time Hard Rock and likeable enough.

Run For Your Life-Totally bad a s s song with a great melodic spoken intro by Snider that recalls Zeppelin before the song gets heavy and speeds up to the level of Priest brutality. Another all time classic.

Sin After Sin-Terrific OTTer(as in "Over the Top") is clearly titled as a tribute to the Priest masterpiece of 1977 of the same name. And the song very much recalls the same sound from those 70s records, clearly showing the band was capable of such. One of my favorite song sof theres', it's also one of there heaviest and rocks with actual purpose in it's tale of embracing a sin filled life.

Shoot Em Down-Cool song that sort of rocks like heavy Kiss but features a more UFO inspired chorus. Pretty addictive and leagues ahead of there pop hits. Great late night driving song.

Destroyer-The title may recall the Kiss album of 1975, but this track is more at home with Metal monsters like Black Sabbath's Iron Man and Judas Priest's Sinner in it's tale of undying creature poised for destruction of all.The heaviest song on the record and the band's heaviest overall, this features one of Dee's best performances and a good use of the bass as dead weight tp carry the lurching sound of Metallic doom.

Under The Blade-Twisted Sister's best song and my personal favorite, this is the one all Manowar loving metalheads reach for first. Guitarist Jay Jay French's riff is one of his best and the lyrics are among the best the band ever wrote. Not quite the S and M classic the PMRC decreed it(even though you can HEAR where they got that from!) this follows the blade as a metaphor for death, an operation and seeing the band. Of course the way Dee sings it can make one think otherwise....

Tear It Loose-Speed metaller that is inspired by Motorhead and rocks pretty heavy. Motorhead's ace guitarist, Fast Eddie Clark, even contributed a solo to the classic. Another album standout.

Day of the Rocker-Slow and heavy with a definitely Sabbath inspired riff that tells the tale of a Rocker's lifestyle. Perhaps not the Metal maelstorm of many previous tracks, this one still has appeal and fits as a nice closer to a powerful record.

Under the Blade ranks as one of the great debuts of Heavy Metal and one of the best albums of 1982. It's one of my personal favorites, and one that is a must for fans of the NWOBHM and Traditional Metal. An absolute Metal essential that will have the committed headbanger going back for many more trips "under the blade"....

5.0 étoiles sur 5 $3.99 for all of this? 18 mars 2015
Par DragonSerpentSwine199 - Publié sur Amazon.com

**At the time I wrote this review this was selling for $3.99**
First of all this is NOT the Atlantic records version. This album has sold over 2 million copies. Atlantic records & Warner international are not going to turn over their master tapes to bottom feeders like Eagle Rock.
Eagle Rock obtained these tapes from Jay Jay French & French Management Enterprises then did the remastering themselves. The copyright on this copy is 1982. The Atlantic version is copyright 1982 & 1985. The reason being that Atlantic didn't release this album until after Stay Hungry.
This CD is missing the song "I'll Never Grow Up" which Atlantic shoved on the album at the last minute.
So what does all of this mean? It means this is as close to the original as you're going to get w/o shelling out a small fortune.
Anybody that claims this to be the Atlantic recordings is sadly mistaken.
Sorry to burst a few bubbles but what I speak is truth.
Now as for my 5 star rating. For $3.99 this CD not only contains the full copy of Under the Blade (minus I'll Never Grow Up). It contains the full Ruff Cuts EP as well as a DVD from the the 1982 Reading Festival.
The picture quality of the DVD is "Ruff" but the audio exceeded my expectations. The Sister is pumped up for this concert. Raw Power! With Fast Eddie Clark, Pete Way, & Lemmy coming out for the finale of the Stones cover It's Only Rock and Roll.
Like I said $3.99 for all of this? Plus Auto-Rip?
Its almost to good to be true.
So come on you SMF pinch yourself & make sure your not dreaming.
Then throw it in the basket & proceed straight to check out.
