Brian Posehn making “metal comedy” album with Anthrax’s Scott Ian

Brian Posehn long has noted his love of heavy metal music within his stand-up comedy act and in his life. Two years ago, he enlisted musicians including Anthrax’s Scott Ian to help out with a track called “More Metal Than You” on his album, Farts and Weiner Jokes. (See the music video for “More Metal Than You” if you haven’t already.)

So why not a full-length metal comedy album?

That’s exactly what Posehn is doing, again with the help of Ian.

While in New York City last weekend for a string of club dates at Carolines on Broadway, Posehn visited SiriusXM and revealed his latest musical works in progress. According to Metal Injection, Posehn said one of the new songs is called, “Satan Is Kind Of A Dick,” while other tracks would include metal-styled covers of old hits, including a potential take on A-Ha’s “Take On Me.” Posehn’s new metal comedy album would be released via Megaforce Records.

What popular songs would you like to hear Brian Posehn and his famous metal musicians cover?
