Set for a double album, it is a collection of heavy metal holiday tunes which consist of the most bizarre versions of festive favorites.
Lemmy, Anvil, ZZ Top and Alice Cooper are set to rock in the festive cheer this Christmas with a new double album of heavy metal holiday tunes. Eagle Rock Entertainment bosses have collected the most bizarre versions of festive favorites like "Frosty the Snowman" and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" for upcoming release "We Wish You a Metal Xmas And A Headbanging New Year: Special Edition".
The compilation features Girlschool's version of "Auld Lang Syne", "Run Rudolph Run" by Lemmy, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Dave Grohl, "Santa Claws (sic) Is Coming to Town" by Cooper, John 5, Billy Sheehan and Vinny Appice and a rocking rendition of "Silent Night" by Chuck Billy and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian.
There's also a poignant version of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" featuring the late Ronnie James Dio and his former Heaven and Hell and Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi.
