God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen?

Sorry Ronnie (RIP), there's no possible way to make "tidings of comfort and joy" sound evil. It's just not going to happen, but we do appreciate your efforts. The real question is: why did they even choose to do this song? The lyrics are basically anti-metal: "save us all from Satan's power"? What?! There has to be another reason to do this...

Oh yeah...the music is fucking epic! This song is all about the Iommi doom -- who cares that he blatantly lifted the riff from "Dazed and Confused"? Not me. This is the perfect soundtrack to doing donuts on a frozen lake, or burning Christmas trees in your front yard. Take this with a generous dram of scotch and call out from work the next morning.
