Metal Christmas songs
Ahh, it's that time of year, time for some great heavy metal Christmas songs. Yes, there actually are some and I am wondering if any of you know of more? The first one I ever heard was King Diamond's No presents for Christmas from 1985. This was released as a twelve inch single and it was the first thing that the King did once he went solo. Another song is Hanoi Rocks' Dead by Christmas which was released as a B side and later stuck on Self Destruction Blues which was a collection of their B sides and rarities. Black Metal originators Venom got into the holiday spirit as well when they did Black Christmas. Well, I am afraid all of those are really negative Christmas songs so my favorite would have to be Heavy Christmas by 220 Volt which can be found on their Power Games cd. They wish everyone a heavy Christmas which I take as meaning "listen to a lot of heavy metal over the holiday" rather than heavy as in "eat a lot of Christmas cookies until you feel heavy like you have lead in your stomach". While searching ebay I recently saw a few compilations of glam bands doing Christmas songs. One was I believe called the Glam that stole Christmas. I wasn't about to buy it as the concept behind this is scary to think that these hasbeen and never were glam artists aren't satisfied with just playing on tribute albums now they are playing classic holiday tunes to make a buck as well. Anyway has anyone else heard any heavy metal Christmas songs?
