Comedian Brian Posehn has friends in metal places. The Uncle Nick star has corralled a murderer's row of rmetal and rock help for his upcoming metal album Grandpa Metal, due out on Feb. 13 on Megaforce Records.
The album produced by Jay Ruston (Anthrax), will feature a massive list of guest collaborators, including Fall Out Boy members Patrick Stump and Joe Trohman, Dokken's Jeff Pilson, "Weird" Al Yankovic, Dethklok's Brendon Small, Anthrax's Scott Ian and Jonathan Donais and Slipknot's Corey Taylor.
The album's first single is a thundering death metal take on A-ha's iconic "Take on Me," featuring Rob Cavestany (Death Angel), Jill Janus (Huntress), Chuck Billy and Alex Skolnick (Testament) and Steve Souza (Exodus). Also appearing on the album: Gary Holt (Slayer), Pearl Aday and Johan Hegg (Amon Amarth), Michael Starr (Steel Panther), Jacob Bunton (Mars Electric) and Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil.
