After releasing an amped-up cover of a holiday classic in each of the past four years, August Burns Red issued a full-length Christmas album, August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album, on October 9 via Solid State Records. The 13-track release features not only fresh takes on classics such as “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland” and even “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer,” but also original compositions that are destined to become future headbanging holiday favorites. Read our album review here.

The album also compiles remixed and remastered versions of the band’s previous holiday hits, like “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Little Drummer Boy.” Rounding out the collection is an updated version of the band’s rendition of “Carol of the Bells,” heard in Frank Miller’s [300, Sin City] movie, The Spirit and Seth MacFarlane’s [Family Guy] American Dad. On whether Sleddin’ Hill is destined to become a novelty album or a key part of the band’s discography, guitarist JB Brubaker says, “To some, the concept of a metal Christmas album may come off as silly and a waste of time, but I think this record has plenty of original August Burns Red substance to interest even the biggest Scrooges out there.
