“Christmas with PelleK” is the third studio-album. It is mixed and mastered by Scott Atkins [Cradle of Filth, Sylosis++], features artwork from Jan Yrlund [Manowar, Korpiklaani++] and it’s recorded entirely by the PelleK band in PelleKs studio “The Ninja Academy”.The album features 8 ancient and classic christmas songs, re-arranged for symphonic melodic metal, with alot of progressive riffs and twists. Vocally you can expect PelleKs 4 octave vocal range to shine through in all it’s glory, as well as an added element of jazzy and classy vocals. The guitars and drums are experly executed as always with Patrick Fallang on guitars and Stian Warlow on drums. The booklet comes with a special message to everyone who has pledged, from PelleK, and a nice christmas image of the guys, as well as the amazing and funny artwork by Dargrove custom design-studio. We can guarantee you you’ve never heard these christmas songs sound anything like this. This is an expensive and thorough thick production with alot of punch.
