For your average metalhead, hair metal hit-makers Twisted Sister and death metal guts-fuckers Cannibal Corpse probably exist in very different mental spaces. But Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider is a lover of all things metal, including the stickier stuff, and so has teamed up with Cannibal frontman George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher for a new solo track, titled “Time to Choose.” And if you didn’t think this match was made in Hell before, wait until you hear the song.

What might surprise fans who first hear “Time to Lose” is just how fast and aggressive Snider’s song is from the get-go. This is more of a thrash track than anything else, galloping at a breakneck pace right out of the gate. This makes Corpsegrinder’s backing vocals throughout feel a little more appropriate than they might otherwise — it’s not as though Dee asked him to lend his talents to some big arena rock track. Along those lines, Snider doesn’t feel the need to overdo George’s participation by making his lyrics extra violent or gory. It’s a kickass metal track, made by two dudes who might’ve never collaborated 20 years ago, and that’s awesome.

“‘Time To Choose’ deals with a subject I’ve addressed often over the course of my writing career: good vs. evil (see ‘Burn In Hell’),” says Snider regarding the single. “Given the heaviness of this track, I felt adding George ‘Corpsegrinder’ Fisher’s voice to this would drive home the seriousness of the choices we make. I was honored when he agreed to contribute his incredibly powerful voice.”
