Metalheads have this stereotype of being hard, mean, dark, and cynical. Though that may be the case, they can still enjoy the festive tunes of the Christmas Holidays. Just because you’re a metalhead doesn’t mean that you can’t like Christmas music. Here’s a list of metal Christmas covers to bring a moshpit to the holidays.
To start, we have a rather dark metal with fantastic vocals. Edicius’ Dream provides a phenomenal metal cover of Carol Of The Bells.
Adrienne Cowan, Jack Kosto, and Mike Kerr give a hauntingly beautiful cover of “O Holy Night”. The metal instrumentals combine with Adrienne’s gorgeous voice for a haunting metal cover.
Jonathan Young & RichaadEB provide a rather hard metal cover of “Carol of the Bells” with amazing instrumentals. Jonathan Young also has a cover of “Frosty the Snowman“.
Orion’s Reign and Minniva create an upbeat metal cover of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”. This song will certainly make you want to create a mosh pit in the middle of family dinner. They also have an eerily beautiful cover of “Joy to the World“.
This is Korn’s cover of “Jingle Bells”. It is everything that a metal song should be: dark, deep, and just a little bit scary.
Leo Moracchioli takes “Last Christmas” originally by Wham and gave us something amazingly hard and dark. He has several other Christmas including covers of “All I Want For Christmas is You“, “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree“
