Lacuna Coil just released 2016's most Rockin' Christmas Song (about Krampus)Written by James Zahn
I wasn't expecting my favorite new holiday song of 2016 to come from LACUNA COIL, but that just changed with the surprise release of "Naughty Christmas," a digital single (Amazon | iTunes) released by Century Media this morning. It's a cautionary tale about why kids should want to be good, with Santa delivering presents for those with good behavior, and Krampus coming for the naughty ones. My wife and I have a differing opinion on Krampus (she gets very annoyed at his mere mention - leading me to believe he may have come for her as a child), but I get excited. Perhaps it's my German roots, but I think that more children should know and respect the Krampus. Crank this one up!
