Rob Halford's done a bloody Christmas album!!!

I must admit to not being a *huge* fan of Halford's solo work (although I only got the first album) - some highlights, but it was all a bit 'modern' metal for me, but when I saw he'd done a Christmas album (!) I simply couldn't resist.

It's a mixture of original songs and versions of classics (carols!), with the emphasis the latter. It all flows pretty seamlessly though, and the new material stands up well. In particular 'I Don't Care' is a wickedly fun tune that ends with an awesome cool riff.

The opener, 'Get Into the Spirit' is the obligatory fast opener; the rest are pretty slow paced; the title track is a power ballad and 'What Child Is This?' and 'Come All Ye Faithful' aren't metal tracks at all really, although they both work well. (Don't let that put you off!)

Halford is still a pretty good singer - the high pitched parts are pretty dodgy these days, sadly, although there aren't too many of those. It's quite a restrained album all round, which fits the subject matter. Oddly when he does go to the higher register these days, Rob sounds more and more like Udo from Accept, to my ears anyway, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, just a rather odd thing...

There's some keyboards here and there, although they work fine - and serve to remind one of Nostradamus here and there, especially when Halford sings lines like 'Glorious now behold him arise, / King and God and sacrifice!'

His version of 'Come all ye faithful' isn't as much fun as

As Harry Hill might put it:
" I like Rob Halford, and I like Christmas Carols.
But which one is best ?
There's only one way to find out...
... FIGHT !!!"

I felt buying this album was a bit of a gamble : it could have turned out to be a load of cheesy trash. But I have to tell you, it is not. It really is surprisingly good. There's a mix of Christmas carols played in a surprisingly heavy style, and new songs in a variety of styles - some heavy and some ballards. However, this album will not be to everyone's taste - if you're not used to religious lyrics with your metal then this might not be your cup of tea.

Well done to Rob Halford firstly for having the nerve to do a Christmas album. And it has to be 5 stars for getting away with it.
Go on, give it a try. You'll never see anything like this again.

With Christmas almost upon us I can't resist telling
you about just one more more seasonal release.
Halford III's 'Winter Songs' is very, very funny indeed.
It's also rather good.

If Rob Halford turned up at your front door one
cold December night, on the back of a lorry with
his bunch of merry minstrels, thrashing out a metal
rendition of 'We Three Kings', I, for one, would
not have the heart to send them away without first
offering them at least a sweet sherry and a mince pie.

Empirically considered this album is an atrocity
but suspend disbelief, hold on hard to your sense
of humour and you might just have a good time.

The traditional items in this jolly collection
are executed (sic) with wild and wayward aplomb.

'Oh Come O Come Emanuel' thrashes along through the
deepening snow like a baby deer pursued by hungry wolves.
A blissfully irreverent rendition !

'Oh Holy Night' boldly diplays the self-evident
limitations in Mr Halford's vocal abilities.
It is an unutterably ghastly performance!
I loved every cringingly bad moment of it!!

Final track 'Come All Ye Faithful' sounds like
the gates of hell might be opening to swallow
up the assembled congregation.
I cannot believe that the angels of whom he sings
are truly on the side peace and good will.
Crikey, you can almost smell the brimstone!

However (and it is a big "however")
'Winter Song' manages somehow to be
rather lovely in the most unlikely way.
Mr Z's achingly cliched guitar solo is a hoot!

The project is a wonderful antidote to Mr Sumner's
recent dastardly festive ramblings and who, in these
dark and worrying times, could ask for more than that?

Highly Recommended/At You Own Risk.

A good set of Christmas songs by Judas Priest's Rob Halford - I for one enjoyed this album, it is something different - Being a Metalhead myself (who does enjoy other genres) this is not a metal album by the traditional sense.

Sure it has a lot of metal riffs but it doesn't get me blood pumping like crazy, it is heavy, yet soulful and mellow, showing a side of Rob Halford that is rarely seen. While I am not crazy on pop and I usually try to avoid pop (there are some rare gems out there), the use of the song "winter Song" by the pianist, Sara Barellis is a bold move which some will and will not like - I for one liked it.

This album does well in giving traditional carols justice with a layer of hard rock/metal, it is sung well - imagine Rob Halford, with his band and a wall of Marshall or Orange amps blasting Christmas carols.

Again, this isn't your run-of-a-mill metal album but one that is reserved for Christmas period and I would recommend it to anyone
