I always forget to pull this one out this time of year, but today I remembered. This is a great Christmas record! The opening track would find a nice home on any of Halfordís other albums. But itís the metal/rock versions of classics like We Three Kings, O Come, O Come Emanuel, What Child Is This, and Oh Holy Night where this album shines. I wish more bands would do albums like this, especially Christian bands who have even more reason to sing about the newborn Savior. Some of these songs (and others Rob didnít do here) translate so well into metal songs.

They translate pretty well as punk songs too:




What I really like about this album is that they don't change the words and they sing the obscure verses as well as the ones everyone knows.

Funny thing is that, once Chrismas season is over, the cd is back on the shelves.

Yes, I think if the melodies to most of these songs weren't already ingrained in me, I would probably think that they sounded very out of place in the songs. I would be more inclined to listen to songs like "I Don't Care" which sound more like classic Halford to me. This is an album that is very contingent on the season.

Yea, this album has no replay value outside of the holiday season, but I dig it anyway.
"O Come Emmanuel" was my late father's favorite Christmas hymn. I often wonder what he would have thought of Halford's version, haha

Sorry, but... (rolls eyes)

Love this album. Sure, it doesn't get much love in the middle of a hot August day, but during the Christmas season, it's a regular spinner for me.

There are some folks out there that say because of his lifestyle choices, he cannot be. And by that, I mean a singer of heavy metal. It's the devil's music crazy happy

I think Rob has stated in the past that he "believes in God"...but that's pretty broad and the most I've ever seen him say on the subject.
