    I listen to this song year-round actually. It's in constant rotation on iTunes on my work computer.



    And of course Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12-24 which is a take on my other Christmas favorite… Carol of the Bells. I don't know the details, but wasn't this song the gave rise to TSO? I don't remember a TSO before this song, but a couple of years later after the song became a radio station staple at Christmas time, I seem to recall the birth of TSO. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    They played this live a couple of weeks ago in Atlanta. Pretty sweet.

    I was just about to suggest this. Amazing cover, but then again pretty much everything they do is gold.

    It'd be nice to see them at ProgPower at some point ;D

    Great song, but it might not have been mentioned because it isn't a cover?

    Ha, yeah I know. Hence my "taking it seriously" comment.

    Though how can you have any mention of X-Mas songs on a metal forum without brining up this classic!

    I was thinking of posting that song too, but didn't since it's not a cover. It's definitely my favorite metal christmas song of all time haha!

    edit: I'm gonna leave this here

    A couple of weeks ago I was in a local TigerDirect buying a power supply. You know how they usually have a TV blasting or a stereo with some crappy music on it. I realized that they had metal on it. I got closer and could hear it clearly and realized it was Christmas music. Somebody on FB suggested it was August Burns Red. It sounds pretty damn good.

    Before Dream Theater gave Charlie Dominici the boot, they recorded an excellent cover of "O Holy Night." They recorded a version with LaBrie as well. I personally enjoy both versions.

    With Dominici:


    With LaBrie:


    Speaking of August Burns Red, I heard their cover of "Carole of the Bells" this season and really enjoyed it. It sounded to me like something that Powerglove would have recorded. It's too bad that their regular material is ruined by the vocalist.


    Stay metal. Never rust.
