Carrying on the tradition that it started in 2008, Misantrof ANTIRecords has, like every year so far, released its Christmas compilation, titled "Holy Fucking ANTIChristmas Volume 6." Misantrof comments:
"The album takes an irreverent poke at what Christmas has become. This year's compilation is again, for your pervert delight, a double CD release, thanks to the amazing interest it has arisen among bands, and then it contains 30 tracks of varying genres, wantonly based on the sick meanings of Christmas. The tracks have been newly written and recorded for this release and like all Misantrof releases this compilation is available for completely free download...
"Regarding the ANTIChristmas albums: If you are reading this you probably don't really love Christmas and its meanings. Humanity is great in creating sick things for everybody to believe. It is such a pity that last year the armageddon did not happen as we wished with our 2012 compilation. So, doomed to live on, our xmas joy reaches such unholy levels in knowing you'll love this new stream of free music, and since Christmas has lost whatever religious significance it had, and it has become a sick orgy of exploitation where everyone is encouraged to spend money to buy stuff they don't need and probably cannot afford, this makes us definitely proud."
The compilation features the following lineup: More...
The fifth annual "Holy Fucking AntiChristmas" compilation has now been posted online for free streaming and download via Misantrof ANTIRecords right here. Misantrof also comments:
"If you're reading this, doomsday is cancelled, or who knows? Maybe the armageddon will come later today. So either you want to celebrate the fact you are still alive, or you want to die happily later today, this is the only soundtrack you need.
"Our sole concern is that it seems we're about to get another money based Christmas. Once again. Christmas has now lost whatever religious significance it had to all but a small handful of people, and it has become a sick orgy of exploitation where everyone is encouraged to spend money to buy stuff they don't need and probably cannot afford.
"We just want to give everyone something for free, and hopefully at the same time make people sit back and realize that there are ways to have fun that do not require vast sums of money."
The lineup on the two disc features a variety of punk, rock, and metal acts including: More...
