Marius Danielsen en Anniken Rasmussen hebben de handen ineen geslagen om een All-staralbum te maken waarvan de opbrengst zal gaan naar het kankeronderzoek.

Vanaf vandaag is het mogelijk om de CD ANA Metal for charity in de voorverkoop te bestellen. Aan het album hebben diverse artiesten meegewerkt waaronder leden van Helloween, Judas Priest, King Diamond, Candlemass, Rainbow e.a. Alle inkomsten komen geheel ten goede aan het kankeronderzoek.

Het album zal uitkomen op 5 mei 2017. Bestellen kan hier.

Anniken and Marius stated:
“We have seen this horrible disease up close. It seems to affect everyone in some case. For quite a while we have had a wish to contribute to the fight against cancer. Now just felt like the time. Ana was originally written in remembrance of someone who died of cancer. We wanted to use it for an even greater cause. However, we wanted to make a fight song, so we had to rewrite some of the lyrics. We are grateful for all the contributing parts and hope that we can make a difference”.

There will be two songs by the all-stars:
1. Ana written by Marius and Anniken
2. DIO Cover Holy Diver

Also some songs will be included on the CD donated by participating bands.
