Random Thoughts: Destruction: "The Alliance of Hellhoundz"

I'm listening to this song right now and this has to be some sort of record for most random guest vocalists in a single song. Besides the obvious Schmier (singer for Destruction), we have the following individuals, many of whom can be identified because they have such dynamic styles:

Biff Byford (Saxon)
Doro Pesch (Warlock, Doro)
Shagrath (Dimmu Borgir)
Speed Strid (Soilwork)
Paul Di'Anno (original vocalist of Iron Maiden, Di'Anno)
Messiah Marcolin (Candlemass)
Mark Osegueda (Death Angel)
Peavy Wagner (Rage)
Peter Tagtren (Hypocrisy, many others)

All on one five-plus-minute song. That's quite the impressive guest roster.

  1. That is absolutely bizarre. I don't think I can name any song which has more than one guest vocalist (I know there are some concept albums which do that kind of thing, but I don't know them), let alone nine of them.

    Perhaps they were trying to make it trivia-notable, so people would buy it just to say they have it.
