Carrying on the tradition that in started in 2008, Norway’s Misantrof ANTIRecords has, for the fourth year running, released its Christmas compilation. Titled “Holy Fucking ANTIChristmas Volume 4”, the album takes an irreverent poke at what Christmas has become.

This year’s compilation is a double CD release and contains 18 tracks from 18 bands of varying genres, loosely based on the various facets of Christmas. The tracks have either been newly written and recorded, or adapted especially for this album. Like all Misantrof releases the 18-track compilation is available for free download, together with cover art and information about the bands involved at this location. Contributing artists are as follows:

Side Shit (Disc 1)

Air Raid Control
Dim Aura
Dunkelheit
Glomb
Harfang
Hecate
Hjorth
Ion Vader
Jesus Hitler One Man Gangbang Band

Side Piss (Disc 2)

Legion of Crows
Lydia Laska
Dos HellHypnosis
Plaag
Svidd
The Small Penis Syndromes
Throne of Malediction
Unknown Johnson
Vrangsinn

Carpathian Forest bassist Daniel Vrangsinn, who founded Misantrof in 2007, heads what he calls the “anti” label, which he set up as an alternative way for bands to release music. By making Misantrof entirely non-profit and allowing the bands to keep all the rights to their music and control all decisions regarding their releases, he has offered bands a viable alternative to the established labels, especially at a time when few, if any, are willing to take risks with new bands.

Regarding the ANTIChristmas albums, Vrangsinn explains: “Christmas has now lost whatever religious significance it had to all but a small handful of people, and it has become an orgy of exploitation where everyone is encouraged to spend money they probably don’t have. We just wanted to give everyone something for free, and hopefully at the same time make people sit back and realise that there are ways to have fun that do not require vast sums of money. It’s a more than 80 minute long reality check on Christmas from 18 different artists and made for pure enjoyment and cost-free self-indulgence”
