Misfits - Horror Xmas - promo flyer - Big - 2013

The legendary Misfits first holiday release (outside of Halloween of course), creeps down your chimney in the form of the “Horror Xmas” EP! Side one unwraps a fiendish cover of the Dr. Seuss classic, “You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch”. True to the original, yet fueled by the band’s signature sound, Jerry Only’s ominously melodic baritone lead vocals, and guest backing vox by John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar), the ‘fits slap devilocks on every Who down in Whoville…

An infectious all-new original Misfits Xmas themed song (written by founding member Jerry Only) entitled “Island of Misfit Toys” debuts, and the band’s long anticipated rendition of “Blue Christmas” surfaces in a full studio version that would even make “the King” himself snarl with holiday cheer. The Misfits serve up a nightmare before Xmas destined to become an annual tradition.

MONSTER BALLADS X-MAS (2007) – Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Posted in christmas, christmas albums, christmas rock songs, christmas songs, classic rock, glam metal, Hair Metal, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on December 6, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

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:
