Heavy Metal Stars Rock Christmas

LEMMY, ANVIL, ZZ TOP and ALICE COOPER are set to rock in the festive cheer this Christmas (10) with a new double album of heavy metal holiday tunes.
Eagle Rock Entertainment bosses have collected the most bizarre versions of festive favourites like Frosty the Snowman and God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman for upcoming release We Wish You A Metal Xmas And A Headbanging New Year: Special Edition.
The compilation features Girlschool's version of Auld Lang Syne, Run Rudolph Run by Lemmy, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Dave Grohl, Santa Claws (sic) Is Coming To Town by Cooper, John 5, Billy Sheehan and Vinny Appice and a rocking rendition of Silent Night by Chuck Billy and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian.
There's also a poignant version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen featuring the late Ronnie James Dio and his former Heaven & Hell and Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi.
