The Best Heavy Metal Christmas Songs

It's a yearly tradition for metal bands, sometimes of the very extreme death/black variety, to pull out a few tongue-in-cheek Christmas covers around this time.

While most are just jokes or aren't pulled off with much effort, there have been a handful of legitimately awesome heavy metal Christmas albums released, and we're going to show you the ones worth hearing.

If you've got a significant other or family member who insists on Christmas music this time of year, these are the albums you want to pull out to really give them a shock!

Death Metal Christmas - "Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics"

Back in 2013, Hate Eternal bass maverick J.J. Hrubovcak released a twistedly unholy rendition of some of the seasons darkest hymns. The EP as a whole is a bit hit or miss, but that death metal rendition of "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" is absolutely killer. For all the hype this got at the time, it's a shame there's never been a follow-up release.

August Burns Red - "Sleddin' Hill"

While I'm not a huge August Burns Red fan personally, this Christmas album is absolutely phenomenal, and filled to the brim with metallic recreations of classic holiday tunes along with some originals. It's also instrumental, which is a plus, as the instrumentation here is top-notch and the band puts a heavy spin on these songs to a much better degree than many heavy metal Christmas albums that came before.

2016 Grammy Metal Performance Nominees Announced

Ready to rage all over again about the lack of metal knowledge in the Grammy awards? It's that time of year again...

If you aren't familiar with this amusing setup, there isn't actually a "best metal album" or "best metal song" category.

Instead, the Grammy's feature a token "best metal performance" nomination that typically involves a bunch of mainstream rock bands and one or two metal groups.

The 2015 winner was Tenacious D covering a Dio track while the 2012 winner was rock band Halestorm.

This year's nominees surprisingly actually include some metal bands, but of course only those that are most well known. The 2016 Grammy nominees for "Best Metal Performance" are: More...
