Comedian Brian Posehn will release a comedy/metal album on Feb. 14, titled Grandpa Metal.
"The original concept for this album came from bands like Scatterbrain and S.O.D., and even Cheech and Chong," Posehn says in a press release. "They all made music that was fun and funny, heavy music that also made you laugh. I wanted this to be the ultimate comedy/metal record, a loving record that made fun of some of the things in heavy metal, so I called all my friends and asked for a bunch of favors. There's a Satan song, and there's a Viking song, there's one song that sounds like Black Metal, and then there's one that sounds like a Van Halen party song. The intention was just to make a funny metal/comedy record for people who like both of those things."
To make it happen, he collaborated with several musicians. Brendon Small (Metalocalypse, Dethklok), Scott Ian and Jonathan Donais (Anthrax), Gary Holt (Slayer, Exodus), Alex Skolnick and Chuck Billy (Testament), Al Yankovic, Johan Hegg (Amon Amarth), Joe Trohman and Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy), and Kim Thayil (Soundgarden) are a few of the many guests to appear.
