Christmas Metal 2010 Roundup

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.

"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.

Winds Of Plague To Record New Album

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.
