‘Tis the season to be Heavy!
Fa la la, la la la, RAR RARR RARRRR!!!!”
Okay. Let’s get this nonsense out of the way. Heavy Metal and Christmas goes together like Daphne & Celeste and Reading Festival *cough cough*
But Metal bands in their infinite wisdom feel the need to cover and write all sorts of Christmas songs and here are a few of our favourites. To start let’s get all traditional… in both terms of Metal and Christmas. Take it away Manowar and Silent Night…
But I guess it’s not all covers. Type O Negative are ones to remind us that Christmas isn’t Joy for all Men with ‘Red Water (Christmas Mourn)’. We miss Pete Steele, especially when he was at his most miserable. You’re remembered, Pete.
And who can forget the wonderful and also sadly missed Christopher Lee once embraced the joint power of crimbo and metal.
You know… This stuff is actually awesome. Writing this has convinced us. Here’s a playlist!!
Merry Christmas, you filthy animals!
