Guns N' Roses, Megadeth, Judas Priest Stars Give Mariah Carey's Christmas Hit A Metal Makeover



(RF) Heavy Metal music fans are well-known for being some of the most passionate and devout fandoms on the planet. Just ask any metal band or artist and they will inevitably say that it's the fans who keep them going, making all of the difficulties and struggles of being a road-weary artist worthwhile. So now, in the spirit of the Giving Season, Christmas, some of the metal world's most renowned vocalists, shredders, and virtuosos are repaying their fans with not one but two volumes of Holiday-themed metal albums that are sure to have the whole family raising the horns and rocking around the Christmas tree!

Perhaps no Christmas song is as inescapable during the holidays as Mariah Carey's retro pop classic "All I Want For Christmas Is You" but rarely is the question asked, what if that song ROCKED? Well, the former Guns N' Roses axeman Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal along with Kings Of Thrash bassist David Ellfson and perhaps the only vocalist on the planet who could go toe-to-toe with Carey, ex-Judas Priest vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens, have the answer. Together, this triumvirate turn in a spine-tingling, superbly epic version of this holiday favorite that deserves to be overplayed this year and every year - just like the original!

A Very Metal Christmas and A Very Metal Christmas II feature brand new recordings from an incredible array of supremely talented metal artists including Rainbow's Graham Bonnet, Megadeth's Chris Poland, King's X's Ty Tabor, Ratt's Stephen Pearcy, Bulletboys' Marq Torien, UFO's Vinnie Moore, King Kobra's Paul Shortino, Deep Purple's Glenn Hughes, George Lynch, Marty Friedman, Great White's Jack Russell, Vixen's Janet Gardner, Angel's Frank DiMino and many more!
