If you happen to be both a Disney fan and Black Sabbath listener, well, have we got the album for you. On Friday, Disney released a new collection of classic Disney songs turned into heavy metal hits.
Metal Disney by the D-Metal Stars features iconic tracks like “It’s A Small World” and “Under the Sea.” So picture Flounder absolutely shredding on a V-shaped battle ax.
Plus, D-Metal Stars actually has some major metal clout to its name.
The band includes former Ozzy Osbourne bassist Rudy Sarzo and Obsession members Mike Vescera, guitarist John Bruno, and drummer BJ Zampa. Vescera spoke to Rolling Stone about the cross-section of Disney and heavy metal listeners.
The album has already been out for a year in Japan. There, it made it to number three on the Amazon rock/metal charts. Furthermore, it hit number two on the Kids charts. Additionally, Disney put the band’s cover of “Beauty And The Beast” on YouTube, and it is something.
Here’s what Beauty might look like as a heavy metal concertgoer.
And just for fun, Rapunzel from Tangled.
When you think about it, the amount of glamor and action-packed heroics that goes on in Disney movies is pretty fitting for a metal track. After all, what is more metal than Rapunzel hitting her Prince Charming with a cast-iron skillet? Or Maleficent, who literally has horns growing out of her head?
So okay, Disney, we’re here for this. Keep on rocking.
