Do you need a fix of some good holiday music that will really get you into a festive mood? I don’t mean the typical selection of Christmas music that fills the malls or stuff from your grandparents’ collection.
If you’re a metalhead, then relief from the boring Yule log soundtrack has arrived just in time! Let grandma and grandpa keep their Bing Crosby and Dean Martin classics confined to their own homes! Here’s a disc for you and your buds to get the celebration in full swing and bring you some headbanging holiday cheer...and be sure to spread the Christmas cheer....TURN IT UP!
We Wish You A Metal Xmas And A Headbanging New Year [Armoury Records] features a dozen genuine Christmas classics performed by an all-star assortment of your favorite rockers like Alice Cooper, John 5, Billy Sheehan and Vinny Appice on “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Rudy Sarzo and Simon Wright on “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” Chuck Billy, Scott Ian, Jon Donais, Chris Wyse and John Tempesta on “Silent Night, “ Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, Steve Morse, Juan Garcia, Marco Mendoza and Vinny Appice on “Santa Claus Is Back In Town,” and Lemmy Kilmister, Billy F. Gibbons and Dave Grohl on “Run Rudolph Run.” And that’s just a teaser of what you’re in for. Holiday music or not, this really is a damn good album and there’s nothing sappy about any of these tracks! These are tunes that should be cranked up to 11 for full enjoyment and of course, to help guide Santa’s sleigh directly to your house as his first stop of the night. Skip the milk and cookies and share a few swigs of Crowne Royale with a splash of Coke, then send ole Saint Nick off feeling the joy while flashing the maloik with a real Black Tooth Grin!
