Becoming The Archetype

"O Holy Night"

There’s something a little spooky about turning 200-year-old Christmas carols into chaotic metal masterpieces. But, when it’s done really well like how the boys in Becoming The Archetype did, we honestly love it. The tune was originally written by a French poet and wine merchant Placide Cappeau and then composed by Adolphe Adam in the 1800’s, and then Becoming The Archetype just shredded it.

Rise Against

"Making Christmas"

Whoever thinks that The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie is wrong. DEAD WRONG. It’s a twisted Christmas story and should be celebrated with a viewing around this time of year. Punk rockers Rise Against have a thrash cover of “Making Christmas” taken from one of our favorite parts of the film. Bats can be hats, why not?
