Welcome To The Nightmare: An All-Star Salute To Alice Cooper = Digipac (CD)
Pretty much a re-release of 1999?s Humanary Stew: A Tribute to Alice Cooper from Dead Line Music (both Dead Line & Magik are under the larger Cleopatra Records label), although it includes 3 additional tracks. Of the three new additions Iced Earth's cover of "Dead Babies" can be found on their Tribute to the Gods cover album and "Bed of Nails" by Children of Bodom can be found on their Trashed, Lost & Strung Out EP. Only Icarus Witch's version of "Roses on White Lace" appears to be the sole "new" track here, although given the way Cleopatra Records works their compilations, I wouldn't be surprised if this was already released another compilation, EP, or was a B-side somewhere else. Still, you're getting quite a lot of bang for you buck with this tribute album. There was quite a fad (mainly perpetrated by Cleopatra/Dead Line) of hair metalers getting together to produce low budget tribute compilations for any and every band, but there's quite a few big names to be found here: Dave Mustaine, Ronnie James Dio, Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Dee Snider, Bruce Dickinson, Roger Daltrey, Slash, Glenn Hughes, and Joe Elliott just to name a few. Children of Bodom (a band I know nothing about) really stand out here on "Bed of Nails", I love the 80s pop-metal era of Alice Cooper and they did a great version of this song, just a little bit heavier, especially with the vocals. Icarus Witch really blew me away with their cover of "Roses on White Lace" (one of my favorite Alice songs and it's pretty disturbing at that), and I even went and bought their album because of it.
