With all of the “rock” and “metal” Christmas albums out there, it’s always a wonder that more bands don’t get in on the action. TWISTED SISTER has done it. There was that “all-star” WE WISH YOU A METAL XMAS & A HEADBANGING NEW YEAR compilation, and this year actor Christopher Lee released his second metal Xmas EP. The latest band is an unlikely one, much like BAD RELIGION’s recent offering. Last night, MEGADETH unveiled their commercial for THRASHING THROUGH THE SNOW: A VERY MEGADETH CHRISTMAS. Check it out, along with an appearance from JENNY LEWIS, who duets with Dave Mustaine for “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
Sadly, this album is not real, but another fine comedy bit from JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE on ABC. Now go get yourself some MEGADETH for the heavy music fan on your holiday shopping list. Here’s some selections hand-picked by The Rock Father, and available now from my affiliate, Amazon:
