Very cool! Loved it!
I'm a sucker for new takes on classic Christmas tunes and this one doesn't disappoint. The production on the song is excellent too.
More Metal in your Christmas!
Once upon a Christmas Eve
As I pondered what I might receive
If Santa came and left me anything for which I'd asked
As I donned my cap and made for bed
An avatar appeared and said
"A dude is coming, dude. With telling you this I'm tasked."
Then with three guitars,
He climbed the amp beside my door
And sat. "Oh, and by the way," he said...
"His name is Metalmore."
Not certain I'd discerned him right,
I asked why be concerned tonight
About a dude that's coming,
A solitary dude arriving from that far Pacific shore,
Who calls himself just "Metalmore?"
The avatar said nothing more.
After this the thing ignored me,
But his quietude implored me
To study him and try to understand just what he was
Neither jolly elf, nor dismal,
He was poker-faced and wishful
Clearly serious about the dude for whom he spread the buzz.
The dude for whom he would implore,
"He's coming; he named Metalmore."
It was in the late December,
Well that Christmas I remember
So, why shouldn't I assume a theme of holidays of yore?
Was he speaking of a savior?
Of metal-studded leather flavor?
Or of reindeer, elves and sleighs, foregoing chimneys for the door?
Spake the avatar, "Metalmore."
Blast! This mysterious little feature!
Neither spiritless, nor creature!
Comes decked in Santa caps and leather, hoisting Dean guitars!
Is he angel, is he deviled?
Costumed impeccably, not disheveled,
A Christmas cap differentiating him from other avatars,
Quoth the avatar,
Said I, you Noel Avatar,
With your trio of guitars
Have you come to serenade? Are you a troubadour?
Are you here imperiling,
Or have you come a-caroling,
An avatar dropped from the stars upon the amp beside my door?
The thing said only "Metalmore."
This dude, I asked, that comes,
is he one that wails and strums
On Dean Guitars in mellifluous metal audiogram?
The avatar sat unblinking,
but I noticed there a linking
Button to an iTunes page for a song called Christmas Jam
A song of carols, but metal, more.
I clicked the link and bought it,
After which the internet brought it
To my Mac, where I had checked it out at iTunes music store
So I sat and raptly listened
To some carols, metal-rechristened
After which the avatar was no longer where he'd sat before.
And as he boarded his guitars and sailed out the door,
He said "Metal Christmas to all, and to all, Metal More!"
