If you've ever wanted to hear a metal tribute to Michael Jackson, today's your lucky day. Even if you haven't, hearing covers from guys who used to compete with MJ for radio airtime is amazing.
The guest list of Thriller - A Metal Tribute To Michael Jackson is pretty insane, featuring members of Whitesnake, Queensryche, Guns N' Roses, Motörhead, Sevendust, Fishbone and Living Colour, as well as former members of KISS and Iron Maiden.
Producer Bob Kulick said of the album:
"We made these awesome songs kick ass while still being faithful to the original versions. Add killer players like Doug Aldrich, Billy Sheehan, Bruce Kulick, Rudy Sarzo, Tony Franklin, Craig Goldy, Bumblefoot, Phil Campbell and you've got some real magic!"
