A place to share seasonal tunes that you're just not gonna hear at the mall (unless the malls where you live are a lot cooler than the ones here). :cool:

I'll start us off with my favourite version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen... this is the only way to carol it!

Love that album. First one we spun this season.

Also love this version of that song, by Luna Mortis.

I enjoy all of Theocracy's stuff, especially their Christmas stuff.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j0jSJ8pwiE

Not a fan of the band, but really like the Christmas stuff from August Burns Red.

Of course it wouldn't be complete without Savatage/TSO!

I have to say that I am not familiar with the performance that you've presented... As for this one in particular - way more I enjoy piece Jethro Tull once did... But I guess it's a matter of taste :)

Yeah, that tune's one of my first spins every year, personally. I'd never heard the Luna Mortis and Theocracy you posted... really dug the Theocracy! The LM was cool too, but lyrics definitely always kick things up another notch, for me. :cool: I gather you program music... internet radio station, is it?

I had not heard either of these songs before, so thanks for that, my good man! A little easier to imagine these playing in a mall (or, in the case of the Tull one, in the mall's elevator :cool: ) than the Dio tune, but that doesn't take anything away from them. Of the two, I like the Joy Unlimited one a bit better, as I dig their experimental vibe.

Next up: good ol' Lemmy...

Actually the song is not that bad - performed with fun... It shows that Blaze and so the crew have got great sense of humour and so distance to themselves... It's about Christmas, right? Very special time in the year... Time of joy and fun - and all this you can see in that clip ;)

Cheers,

Though I do wish him nothing but the best in life!

Also, an honourable mention to Christopher Lee... he (and his estate) is pretty hardcore about keeping his Christmas tunes off of youtube, but they're available on Google Music and the iTunes, and personally, I think the novelty of this great actor in his nineties singing metal Christmas songs is well worth the price of admission! I'd love to know the story of how he came to do these songs. Preview HERE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TnFIDKyX50).

Did you know that twisted sister has a complete christmas themed album?

my contribution: a little mix of black metal and parody fun:

Woods of trees - all i want for kriegsmas is you:

I did indeed, my good man! In fact, it was that very album that started me on the hobby of collecting all the rock and metal Christmas songs I could find. :cool:

I dig the Woods of Trees vid... been a while since I've heard that one.

@Witkacy: Cool stuff! The harmonica threw me a bit, but it was definitely unique.:cool:

Up next: something brutal, something new!
