Who couldn’t use a little metal in their stockings this year? Because we love you (and because search traffic is already hitting a fever pitch for it), we decided to resurrect our Severely Metal Christmas Mixtape to help kick the seasonal spirit into fifth gear.
First published as an installment of our Christmas Songs Mixtape series in 2008, this mix focuses on a batch of tracks that are either altogether on the side of laughably stupid shredding (Spinal Tap) or face-meltingly metal (King Diamond). Whatever the case, these are some of the best and brightest metal renditions of Christmas favorites you’ll find.
Rawkit. And have a very metal Christmas while you’re at it.
