Looking for recommendations for something different this year - So what I want you to do is share your favorite, Top 5 albums you play every Christmas. Be honest, I want to hear all of them, even if it's Sandi Patty or Michael Card

Trans-Siberian Orchestra:  Christmas Eve and Other Stories, The Christmas Attic, The Lost Christmas Eve

Various:  Merry Axemas: A Guitar Christmas

Gary Hoey:  Ho, Ho Hoey, Ho, Ho Hoey 2

Rock Power Praise:  Vol II:  They Christmas Hymns

Joshua's Creed:  We Three Kings (single)

Of course I'll give my In The Christmas Groove album a spin along with The Metal Drummer Boy single.  (Kind of narcissistic, I know.)

I don't listen to a lot of christmas music, although Theocracy's songs are great, and the Rock Power Praise CD is also really good.

I'm looking forward to getting the Bride CD too.

I don't think I own many Christmas albums. I tend to listen to a mix of various artists and songs. The only album that I own, is a Bing Crosby one.

The ones I play the most are:

Twisted Sister - Twisted Christmas
Metal Christmas
Monster Ballads Christmas
Helix - Christmas
Rock Power Praise 3 - Christmas
Two albums by Brian Setzer Orchestra
The Santa Clause 2 soundtrack
Gaither Vocal Band - Still The Greatest Story Ever Told
Several albums by Pentatonix


And I have a Christmas playlist of about 30 songs that are not on most Christmas albums anymore or songs that may be overplayed that I still love.  I would rather have those songs than keep rehashing the same ones over and over

Oh, I left off the albums and EPs by Northern Lights Orchestra!  Those are wonderful!


I am one of the few people on the planet that can't get into TSO.  I don't like long songs.  I feel like I really have to concentrate on their arrangements and lyrics when I have tried to listen to them.  It makes me fatigued just trying, and I turn their music off in frustration because I quickly become over-stimulated.  They are great musicians, but just not for me.

I am more likely to listen to something that makes me feel good and I don't really have to think about.

Ehhhh, I don't think of it that way.

I have two Christide playlists. The one for public consumption is 250+ songs, and mine is 650+ songs. I just shuffle them and call it good.

I have another ~180 that I know came from Christmas collections, but I haven't had time to classify them further. Around Nov 1 every year its becomes a project to wade through some of them before the holiday gatherings.

Don't know that I could pick just 5 as my collection is so vast and varied it's not even funny (I have several hundred songs on my Christmas music playlist). Some of my favorites include both of the Bethlehem Skyline albums released years ago by Centricity Records, Evie's Come On Ring Those Bells and Andrew Peterson's Behold the Lamb of God. Also a big fan of the assorted Christmas music that ApologetiX has done - particularly the older stuff that appeared on Have Yourself a Parody Little Christmas (I still can't listen to "Hotel California" without wanting to sing "Welcome, but the hotel can't afford ya")

I love the Apologetic albums!  Their Christmas discs are some of their finest!

Since we got Kelly from Lordchain to pop in over here, let's see if we can do it twice.

How many of you would like them to do a Christmas worship EP?  Maybe they could do 4 original songs and one remade classic but spin it with that Lordchain vibe?  Personally, that would be the bomb dot com to me!

Now that would be cool.  Lordchain Praise have been my favorite P&W albums since PK Mitchel did his hymns album.

To be honest, I used to like some P&W stuff but it became so repetitive and cookie cutter.  The Lordchain Praise EPs are the first worship projects I have loved in a LONG time.

I've acquired quite a few Christmas tunes over the years but many are just singles (a la Theocracy) but here are some of my favorites:

Albums/EPs:
Tublatanka - Poďme bratia do Betlehema. Fun Christmas album from Slovakia's most popular metal/rock band. Their other Christmas album is due in today. Smile

Flaskavsae - Christmas (EP). Not very "Christmas" sounding lo-fi black metal, but if you're into that sort of music (as I am!), it's good!

Wisdom & Wages - Vol. 1 (EP). A sort of side project from the guys of Death Therapy, this instrumental three-song EP is quite rocking but also has some funk and groove to it. I dig it!

Compilations:
A Brutal Christmas: The Season In Chaos. The first metal Christmas compilation I ever bought. It's got some great songs and also some that I especially don't care for, but it's fun nonetheless.

Repossession: A Christmas Album. Another fun one. This one has a fair bit of repeats from A Brutal Christmas but also some unique stuff.

Prophecy Foretold: A Brutal Christmas Compilation. Same description as above. Smile

Singles:
Theocracy - [multiple]. Theocracy's Christmas songs are fantastic and some of my favorites.

Warpriest - [multiple]. Like Theocracy, Warpriest's multiple Christmas tracks are played very often this time of year! His original song Krampusnacht is especially great.

Becoming The Archetype - O Holy Night. I love how soft this one starts out and how progressively heavier it gets. They bring a lot of originality to this cover.

Blood Thirsty - O Come Emmanuel (The One Foretold). Though obviously influenced by BTA's song above, this one is pretty unique as well and totally awesome symphonic death metal.

Wytch Hazel - Auld Lang Syne. This is a much more solemn song than they're typically known for but very good.

Sonata Arctica - Christmas Spirits. Very goofy but fun song.

Other Mentions:
Epta Astera's first album Ero Cras has quite a few Christmas tunes on it which I dig. Signum Regis' song The Magi fits here and is some good power metal.
