Some things will never changeâ€¦ when heavy metal is running through your veins, you live in New York and you are the axe-man of one of the worlds most provocative sick motherfucking bandsâ€¦ you will always wanna rock!
Eddie's best known for all the years he has spent as the lead guitarist for Twisted Sister. After years of creating a name for themselves in bars and clubs in the New York area, Twisted eventually toured the world from Japan to Canada, Europe to Australia. Eddie played on eleven albums (which earned a combined 25 gold and platinum records worldwide) and performed in over 4000 shows, opening for groups such as Iron Maiden, Dio, ZZTop, Whitesnake, and Motorhead. Ronnie Dio chose Eddie to perform alongside Neal Schon, Yngwie Malmsteen, George Lynch, and many other great musicians in the "Hearing Aid" video--Heavy Metal's contribution to the African Relief Fund. During the Twisted period Eddie was featured in the motion picture "Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure," gave interviews to radio stations across the country, and was recognized in the book, "Who's Who in Rock'n'Roll".
Eddie Ojeda in his first solo album has nothing to prove. The whole metal scene knows his performing and song writing abilities He wrote songs with all his great friends in mind. For instance when he wrote "Tonight" (a magnificent opening track with the mighty R.J Dio on vocals) he knew exactly how to make it a hit and how it could fit Ronnie's voice. When he re-arranged the classic Beatles "Eleanor Rigby" (actually transformed it into a heavy metal avalanche!) he knew that Dee Snider's powerful and enormous throat would make it one of the classic covers ever made! The same goes for all the songs. One by one, after our thirsty ears, they are emerging straight from the heart of the legendary "Fingers".
Ladies and Gentlemen this is heavy metal! And heavy metal is all about celebrating our anger, our passion, our dreams and nightmares; it's about who we are and who will always be. "Axes 2 Axes" is THE heavy metal album; made by musicians who live and breath this musicâ€¦ made by some of those who first played it and lived it to the bone. And Eddie, with all his friends, truly mean itâ€¦
