Another Christmas is just around the corner, which means jolly fat men in red suits scaring the bejeesus out of crying children and uncomfortable dinners with family members who don't actually like each other. Christmas isn't just caroling and spiked egg nog though, it's also another opportunity to rock out with some metal steeped in the holiday spirit. We already gave Christmas the metal treatment with a list of the top 10 most metal light shows, as well a new edition of the Rockstar Ramblings describing what aging rockers really want to get under the tree. Slipknot front man Corey Taylor also recently posted a Christmas music video here. To keep December heavy, we've also rounded up a list of the 2010 Christmas and Anti-Christmas rock and metal songs available online.
First off is the 2010 edition of the Misantrof AntiRecords "Holy Fucking AntiChristmas" compilation, which features 15 punk, instrumental, and metal tracks tearing the most commercial holiday of the year a new one. You can stream or download the songs here, and the track listing is as follows: More...

American progressive deathcore act Winds Of Plague has posted its 2010 "Christmas Special" online. You can view the video below:
Winds of Plague vocalist Johnny Plague has checked in from the road with the following tour report:
"We are currently wrapping up the last days of our European tour. We had an amazing time with out good friends in Stick To Your Guns and For Today, as well as our new friends from the UK, Monuments. Concluding our first headline run in Europe we are looking forward to putting out a new record and heading back over seas to continue our worldwide onslaught.
"Before we get back to Europe and the UK we have some other business to attend to including the December Decimation tour where we will be headlining U.S. tour dates with a stacked undercard featuring After The Burial, Carnifex, War Of Ages and Upon A Burning Body. For this tour we will be playing a song off the new record, which is set for a March 2011 release. Prepare for annihilation."
Southern California progressive deathcore act Winds Of Plague have entered a Los Angeles studio with producer Matt Hyde to begin recording its new album for an early 2011 release through Century Media Records.
Vocalist Johnathan Cooke commented by saying:
"Coming off of Mayhem (the biggest tour of our career) was inspiring to say the least. Literally the day after Mayhem fest ended we were in the studio hard at work on new material. Fast forward a few weeks and we are now into week one of the recording process for our new album (yet to be named).
"We set out with producer Matt Hyde to raise the bar for Winds Of Plague both as a band and as musicians. We put a lot of our writing focus into the energy and the structure of the songs and everything else just seemed to fall into place naturally.
"Although it is early in the recording process, I can confidently say this will be our best offering yet. Both fans of 'Decimate The Weak' and 'The Great Stone War' will be pleased for we haven’t altered the formula or strayed from our roots, but injected them with rage and fury. The game certainly will change in 2011."

Jonny (vocals) checks in with the following Mayhem Fest report, "The first three shows on Mayhem have been mind blowing. It has been nothing but huge turn outs and absolutely insane shows. The Mayhem crowd definitely knows how to fuck shit up. From Oompa Loompas to Jager girls and everything in between, the Mayhem experience is one of a kind and I strongly suggest a fan of any kind of heavy music to make it out to a show. We have been pretty busy out here but have managed to continue working on new material and immediately following the tour will enter the studio with Grammy Award winning producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Hatebreed) to record our third release.

Paul Ablaze of Montreal's Blackguard has checked in with the following recap of the From Afar tour, headlined by Ensiferum this past fall:
"Another tour in the Bag , Another notch on the belt , and Another round of good times were had by all.
"For a tour that seemed destined to fall apart on itself just before it's start, I believe it exceeded all expectation by a long shot. With Ex Deo pulling out for the majority of the tour and Hypocrisy having to bail all together, the future looked very bleak. But at the end of the day it was Ensiferums call to bite the bullet and pull ahead with the tour, and for that we cannot thank them enough.
"As disappointed as we were not being able to tour with those two amazing bands, their absences proved to be a blessing in disguise. Being bumped up to direct support might have been one of the best things to happen to us, and with the addition of Lazarus A.D we got to become friends with some of the most badass people we've ever met.
"Although the crowds might have been smaller overall, we got to play to more people every night and our new position on the tour certainly motivated us to step up our game.
"This tour being quite the contrast to our last tour (Summer slaughter) in pace and scale, it was a little more relaxed and offered us some more down time to breath. That being said here are some of my more memorable moments from 'from afar' More...
