Snider previously revealed that the seeds for the record were planted after he appeared on Jamey Jasta’s podcast, where the Hatebreed vocalist challenged Snider to make “a true metal record.”

Snider said: “This is a record of inspiration – everything about it is inspiration. It starts with the amazing Jamey Jasta being inspired by my music and my voice. He reached out to me and challenged me to make a true metal record – to use my voice and make a really hard record. 

“I was then inspired by his passion, his words and his belief in me, and I took that inspiration and rose to the challenge.”

For The Love Of Metal features a number of guest musicians and vocalists, including ex Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones, Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton, Joel Grind and Nick Bellmore from Toxic Holocaust and Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz.
