The House of Hair and Armoury Records want to Rock Your Christmas! Fed up with Bing Crosby, Bruce Springsteen, Mariah Carey and all those other wimpy Christmas CD’s you’ve been forced to play all these years? The HOH wants to give you a brand new XMAS compilation that’s guaranteed to Rock Your Christmas! It’s called “We Wish You A Metal XMAS And A Headbanging New Year” and it delivers on its promise! Hear songs from Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), Alice Cooper, Ronnie James Dio, Geoff Tate (Queensryche), Tim “Ripper” Owens, Stephen Pearcy (Ratt), Tracii Guns, Joe Lynn Turner…and lots more! Packed with 12 new versions of Christmas classics plus a couple of new songs, this CD is guaranteed to Rock Your Christmas!
New York, NY-Armoury Records, distributed by Eagle Rock Entertainment, has released one mighty molten metal blast of good CD cheer: We Wish You A Metal Xmas And A Headbanging New Year.
It’s an all-star assemblage as members of such great hard rock bands as Queensryche, Dio, Alice Cooper, Dokken, KISS, L.A. Guns, Motorhead, Black Sabbath, King’s X, Judas Priest, Anthrax, Ratt, and more all jam out together on some of the most beloved holiday songs of all time.
The kick is in the chemistry between the musicians as members of different bands perform together on the material to create a one-of-a-kind listening experience! Motorhead’s Lemmy, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Foo Fighter Dave Grohl, for instance, team up on “Run Rudolph Run,” a song popularized by Chuck Berry. This is just one of 12 such irresistible pairings.
“This is a metal CD you will want to listen to all year round,” says Wendy Dio, who put the project together with Bob Kulick and Brett Chassen. “It has been a very exciting and exhausting project, but we have managed to get an allstar cast together.”
Ironically, the hardest person to get was Dio himself as he doesn’t sing Christmas songs. Wendy hounded him for days, finally getting him to listen to Kulick’s arrangement of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.” Dio liked it, added a few bits, recorded it at Kulick’s studio, and got Tony Iommi to add his signature guitar sound. The result is a very Sabbath Christmas song. Rounding out the circle of familiar characters on this track are Dio bassist Rudy Sarzo and drummer Simon Wright.
“The Metal Xmas album was a great opportunity to pay homage to my least favorite holiday,” says Dio, “and what a lineup of musicians to do it with! The arrangements of the classic noel songs are fresh and heavy with rock’n’roll, and the performances are equally classic. It’s a magical way to change your holiday listening.”
