I know it's just fall... but I'm planning ahead!  I want to create a video on YouTube about the BEST Hard Rock/Metal Christmas music/songs.

What are your favorites?

I love Theocracy's Night Of Silence, it's not that heavy, but I think it's great!

I found Halford's "Winter Songs III" to be really good... I know He's not a Christ-follower, but He does these songs in a very honorable way --- without changing the Lyrics and the band is killer.

Warpriest - We Three Kings (Gathering Gloom Version)
Warpriest - I Wonder As I Wander
Frost Like Ashes - Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent
Tortured Conscience - Little Drummer Boy
Signum Regis - The Magi
Flaskavsae - Christmas EP (all the songs are good)
Epta Astera - Veni Emmanuel
Epta Astera - Gaudete
Century Sleeper - Gaudete
Vials Of Wrath - Greensleeves (What Child Is This)
Immortal Souls - Christ Mass
Grave Robber - Grandma Got Half-Eaten By A Zombie
Kekal - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Frank's Enemy - Coventry Carol
Aldaria - The Three Kings

I like a lot of the instrumental versions:

Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/14) - Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Wizards In Winter - Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Jingle Bells - Brian Setzer
Silent Night, Holy Night Jam - Joe Satriani
The Metal Drummer Boy - Derek Close (shameless plug but I really do like it)

My favorite is probably the album We Wish You a Metal Christmas and a Headbanging New Year.  Some great stuff on there.  Dio singing "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlement" and Alice Cooper's "Santa Claws is Comin' to Town" are my favorite tracks on the album.  There's also Twisted Sister's Christmas album.  On the Christian side of things, I really like that Season in Chaos album Kerrick mentioned and those Theocracy songs.

And I don't want to open a can o' worms, but I was thinking I had read that Halford was a Christian.

I recall reading a few years ago he few up on a Christian home, prays every day and "follows the teachings of Jesus", which is somewhat vague but maybe he's on the right path.

Aside from all of Theocracy (incl. Bethlehem) and several TSO, many of my favorites are fairly mellow but always give me tingles:
Kutless - Mary Did You Know
Jeff Scheetz - O Holy Night
Stride - What Child Is This?

Is it almost that time of year again.
I must be the only person in the world that doesn't really like Christmas music.

I only like it in small doses.  I play some in between all my regular music during the month of Christmas.  I won't play any until AFTER Thanksgiving.

I never listen to Christmas music, even not when it's Christmas.
There's one song I really like.
That's "O Holy Night"

I used to be that way because I grew up listening to Bing Crosby, Perry Como, Nat King Cole and all that traditional Christmas music you hear on the radio. But a couple years ago someone made me a mix with off-beat Christmas music and I really enjoy it. I also like Brad Paisley's Christmas album and have a mix of songs from several artists who recorded one song for a comp.
