Metal legends Slayer, along with Cannibal Corpse (and Lamb of God AND Amon Amarth) have announced dates and cities for their 2019 World Tour  Stops in Texas include El Paso on May 5 at the Don Haskins Center, Edinburgh on May 7 at the Bert Ogden Arena and Dallas at the Toyota Pavilion on May 8.

To hold us over until then, head bangers, let’s enjoy some warm holiday music. First it’s Slayer doing their take on the yuletide classic, “Sleigh Ride”.

More like “Slay-ER Ride”, eh, Metalheads?

You’d probably be surprised to learn that Death Metal pioneers Cannibal Corpse also have done a Christmas song. They haven’t. But , if they had, maybe it would have sounded something like the following. Enjoy this jazzy and jaunty version of “santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”!

And you probably thought Bruce Springsteen’s was the rockin’est version of this song. Hail Santa! I mean…Satan?
