Rob Halford’s Heavy Metal Christmas

Rob Halford is releasing a metal Christmas album called Winter Songs. Heavy metal and Christmas are two things that don’t mesh very well at all so this sounds like an ill-fated journey for Halford. I guess many will view it as a fun sort of novelty record. Halford’s voice sounds great on this song as it normally does. No screams though. The song is called We Three Kings and it’s basic straightforward power metal with typical shreddy solos. I’d rather remember the stunning British Steel anniversary tour I just saw Halford DESTROY on rather than this song. Take a listen and see what you think. Maybe your xmas this year will be filled with Halford’s festive heavy metal songs.

  1. Frickin’ AWESOME! I’m definitely getting that. I think Halford is the best metal vocalist ever! I really liked Twisted Sister’s Christmas album too. Alot of tongue-in-cheek humor on that one… You can see my review of it on my own blog…

    I checked out Rob’s Christmas album. I didn’t know what to expect. It blew my mind. His voice singing classics like “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” and “What Child is This” took my breathe away.

    Light of This World brought tears to my eyes. I played it for my wife, and she cried; it was so beautiful. I don’t know what’s going on with this album, but its something very powerful.
