It’s a little over two months until Christmas is here, but you can start your yuletide feelings today with the smooth and soulful stylings of the legendary John Zorn and Mike Patton and their cover of “Christmas Song.” In case you’re wondering, no, they didn’t metal the song up any. It’s a faithful cover, and highly classy.
“But why are you posting this on a site about metal?! This doesn’t make any sense!”
Because fuck you, Scrooge McGrinch. I shouldn’t have to tell you about their importance and relevance to heavy music, but here’s a hint.
John Zorn’s Christmas album A Dreamers Christmas is available now, and it’ll give you some much needed holiday music that doesn’t absolutely suck. Dat jazz.
