So with the season of Christmas looming nearer we se loads of people rushing to the stores to buy the latest Christmas compliations out there to hear the old, familiar hits like Jingle Bells and the 12 Days of Christmas once again. We metal folk, as always, are another breed though, so what do you crank in your stereo to get into the spirit?

I asked myself this question, and couldn't really think of any song in particular (or at all for that matter ), so I came on here to hear your opinions?

Christmas metal; is there such a thing?

Around xmas I like to stray into folk metal such as Korpiklaani, Ensiferum and Finntroll
We throw folkmetalraves and drink nothing but Jager and ale, and dance like gay Russian loggers

That's amazing. I'm not even shocked; that's just awesome.

What the hell happens on the 14:th of February?

And we celebrated Christmas long before the Christians came over here; we had an old heathern celebration going on back in the days we were considered "godless marauders", so the Christians sneakily put their date of celebration close to our own and with time we came to celebrate the same event.

Valentines day.

And Venom sounds christmassy to me. Probably because I got Black Metal as a christmas present. I just can't get into the mood if Venom aren't played. Kind of a tradition for me.

Didn't Nattefrost have some nutty sledge-y song somewhere?

There should be festive winter-themed folk black metal.

'Twould be classic.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Well, the name makes me think of Christmas and winter right away, so that's part awesome.

It would seem most of these songs only have a sentimental connection with the holiday, which might explain why I couldn't think of any myself.

Oh, and I feel like such a loser for not knowing Vallentine's Day.

Trans Siberian Orchestra?

Winter time means black metal season, though. Always.

Sleep Terror did a really good tech death version of numerous Christmas songs in one progressive format.

They might put it up on their myspace again this year. I think it's called Xmas Medley . Im not entirely sure though.

Look at their snocap song purchasing thingy underneath the myspace tracks to play a sample of the song.

You could always dl a p2p or torrent version of the song.

Yes, yes there is A Brutal Christmas: The Season In Chaos it's not bad either minus a few songs

Everybody gets so caught up in the material side of Christman, they forget the true meaning of it-Christianity!

Bethemoth-Cristians to the Lions'
Slayer-Hell Awaits, The Antichrist
Metallica-Leper Messiah
Nile-Even the Gods Must Die

Christmas is basically bullcrap. sorry to put a negative connotation but **** its the same as any other day except people are supposed to be happier so they just pretend to act happier and jolly. and the fact that you HAVE to buy people **** is rediculous. I don't have enough money to afford more then top ramen why do i need to spend it on you?

Oh... probably this christmas i'll be wanting to listen to DT (haven't popped in one of their CDs in years) as well as some folk metal and gothenburg (since those are both genres i have like no cds of).

It's not a strictly religious holiday; who are you to say I don't celebrate it for the same reasons as my ancestors? Besides the fact that it's obvious that I am right in this regard (and don't give me that on the prestents; mankind always celebrate by giving each other gifts, regardless if it's because of a birthday, a graduation or, yes, christmas) this still has nothing to do with the point of this thread.

EDIT: Too mean? I kinda feel bad about now.

it is a religious holiday and as it comes from a crapy religion (not to forget that religions in general are bull****) a crapy holiday

Trans-Siberian Orchestra of course! And Savatage, and stuff like Amorphis, Dark Tranquility, synth heavy black metal.
