Monster Ballads - XMAS - cover promo pic!

MONSTER BALLADS X-MAS – Back in 2007, Monster Ballads X-Mas was released via Razor & Tie. There are 15 Christmas Hard Rock/Heavy Metal songs on this cool compilation; with many 80′s Heavy Rockin’ legends being represented. 80′s Hair Metal fans take notice! From Twisted Sister to Billy Idol and from Stryper to Dokken, these easily likable and timeless songs on Monster Ballads X-Mas are both festive and fun for me. I’ll have to admit, I get a holiday spirit energy boost once my ears connect to Christmas Rock (and cover) songs.

My favorite songs on Monster Ballads X-Mas are many; here’s a few: I’ll Be Home For Christmas (Twisted Sister with Lita Ford), Jingle Bells (Skid Row), Jingle Bell Rock (Nelson) and Winter Wonderland (Stryper). A combination of live and studio recordings, this is a compilation of Christmas classics that I highly recommend to all who want to celebrate the holiday season in Rock-tastic style!

I now hereby declare: Monster Ballads X-Mas is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day! 

What’s your favorite Christmas Rock song? I truthfully have a ton of favorites!

One last Metal thought: I (finally) bought this CD about a week ago at my local Super Walmart. It came with a $5 (U.S.) sticker price too. Metal be thy name.

Here’s the CD back cover with the track listing:

Scythia – Folk Metal Band Releases Xmas Song: “…Of Santa”

Posted in christmas, christmas rock songs, christmas songs, folk metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on December 20, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Folk Metal clan Scythia have released a holiday tune for fans called “…Of Santa”, which is now streaming on youtube at the following link here and can also be purchased at bandcamp here.

“Christmas has all the right elements of Folk Metal: it’s dark and wintry, it involves magic, and there’s plenty of ale and mead. This year, we figured it was time to pay homage to the season by creating our very own Scythian Christmas tale.” commented vocalist / guitarist Dave Khan.

In addition the 2011 year coming to an end, Scythia have been mentioned on a few Top 2011 lists for this year’s sophomore release “…Of Exile”.

Decibel Magazine named Scythia’s “Oboe of Death” the #2 of Top 5 Non-Metal Instruments on a 2011 Album. Check it out on pg #54 of Issue #87 Jan 2012.

So what is Scythia?

Taking its name from vocalist/guitarist Dave Khan’s infatuation with a painting of Nordic/Russian warriors riding bears while brandishing swords, Scythia not only “gives the painting musical significance,” but it is also “the name of an ancient empire spanning from the Caucasus through Russia, and even into eastern Scandinavia. The melodies used in our music have a very ancient, sometimes medieval sound, so I wanted to attribute them to an ancient civilization,” says Khan.

In 2010, Scythia released its debut, “…Of War” (originally with violin) which was produced by Shaun Thingvold who has engineered on projects with SYL, Fear Factory, Darkest Hour and many more. Now, following some line-up changes, Scythia have released their second album “…Of Exile”, again produced by Shaun Thingvold September 23, 2011.

Ahhh… those good ol’ ’80′s. Billy Squier has always been a staple in my Hard Rock Music collection, since I can remember. This song and video does bring back some good time Holiday memories for me. Seeing some of those MTV VJ’s of yesteryear is a real hoot too. Enjoy this Christmas song and video! Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a very Metal New Year to all!

TWISTED SISTER – “A TWISTED CHRISTMAS” IS A HEAVY METAL HOLIDAY MUST LISTEN!

This is by far, my favorite Christmas album ever. Twisted Sister A Twisted Christmas is not just a standard, run of the mill Heavy Metal Christmas album. These are 10 Christmas songs that are truly played with spirited enthusiasm and high energy by Twisted Sister. Dee Snider really sings his heart out, honestly giving a tremendous effort especially on O Come All Ye Faithful and I’ll Be Home For Christmas. Dee Snider sings every verse, of each song, in eloquent fashion, accentuating the lyrics when the song dictates. (Hey, I’m not saying that Dee Snider is Frank Sinatra here, just that he really sings great on this album). The music is what you would come to expect, in Twisted Sister/Heavy Metal fashion. Lita Ford appears on vocals alongside Dee Snider on I’ll Be Home For Christmas, this song is played and sung so well that it is an instant natural high for me. My twin daughters, (they are ten years old), told me the other day, that this Twisted Sister album really gets them in the Christmas spirit too… and that is without my prodding or asking them their opinion on it. To have a Christmas tradition with my daughters, that involves Twisted Sister, well, quite frankly it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

Twisted Sister puts their original sound and Heavy Metal flavor to these songs, yet they do this with the upmost class. These classic Christmas songs are treated here with respect by Twisted Sister and in my Metal opinion, have made a Heavy Metal Christmas classic. I can honestly say that this album puts me in the Christmas spirit, it has now become an annual listen starting at the beginning of November! You absolutely, positively, cannot serve yourself wrong by purchasing or giving a listen to A Twisted Christmas. You most certainly will be missing out on a good time, Heavy Metal, Twisted Christmas celebration – if you don’t check this album out.

A quick Metal Odyssey note: Dee Snider is a true American Heavy Metal Hero.

A second quick Metal Odyssey note: A Twisted Christmas was released on October 17, 2006.

Oops, one more quick Metal Odyssey note: Merry Heavy Metal Christmas to the PMRC!
