Eighties rock icons unite for Monster Ballads Xmas CD

Inspired by the success of the Platinum-certified, best-selling Monster Ballads collections and last year's surprise Christmas hit, Twisted Sister's A Twisted Christmas, Razor & Tie Entertainment is will release the Monster Ballads Xmas CD on Sept. 11. Featuring such hair metal icons as Winger, Queensryche, Dokken, Twisted Sister and many more, the album contains rock versions of Christmas favorites, both old and new. New recordings by Skid Row, Winger, Nelson, Queensryche and members of Cinderella and Warrant will be on the disc.

Monster Ballads Xmas is co-executive produced by Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French. According to French, “80s bands are more popular than ever.
