ALICE COOPER – “I’ll Bite Your Face Off” picture disc 7″ single (2011)
If you’re a Cooper fan, this is totally worth buying. It’s a beatiful 7″ with Ross Halfin photo on one side, and tracklist on the other. “I’ll Bite Your Face Off” is a nice looking disc to start with.
The song itself is an uptempo rocker from the recent Welcome 2 My Nightmare. It’s a fairly strightforward song, unlike some of the more quirky songs from the album. As such, it makes good single material, but it’s not among the best tunes on the album.
“I’ll Bite Your Face Off” was co-written by Neal Smith, of the original Alice Cooper band. It was performed by all the surviving members of that band, too: Smith (drums), Michael Bruce (guitar) and Dennis Dunaway (bass). It is their first recording together since 1974. Wow.
On the flipside is a great live version from the Download festival. This recording is not available anywhere else. It features a great Steve Hunter guitar solo and a truly rocking backing band. If you want to complete your Welcome 2 My Nightmare collection, I’m afraid you’re going to need this single!
Awesome. 5/5 stars.
