Major bump for the following reasons:

- It's almost that time of the year, ho ho ho!

- Some people might start to wonder about stuff for their December compilations

- More importantly, James LaBrie starred on the Symphony North "debut" album (the 2017 one seems to be considered a demo, now it's a re-recorded double album), on the track "Every Doubt has an Answer", which is on YouTube and Spotify alongside the whole album:

Not my favorite track on the album but hearing James sing is always a big plus!

EDIT: I was almost forgetting that also Jordan Rudess is a guest on the track Christmas Wishes:

There's a band called Wizards of Winter, which was formed by some of the TSO cast-offs that used to be in the touring band.  I've never cared to listen to them because TSO still exists and is so good at what they do, that I really don't need another version of them.

Dee Snider also did Van Helsing's Curse about 15 years ago, which was TSO for Halloween, and Al Pitrelli and others were on the record.  It's not Christmas, but also featured a lot of TSO players.

Alto is in New Mexico, small town that I haven't heard a band playing in. Nor did I know their is a performing arts center there.

Keep in mind that the real TSO's tour is massive, hits many major markets and are playing two shows a day.  They have those markets completely covered.   

This little knock-off version of TSO isn't going to get those same cities, though they do look like they have some dates in the surrounding suburbs.

The Wizards of Winter are becoming (musically wise at least) an alternative to TSO. On one hand, they're pretty derivative of them, but hey, there are legions of bands in every genre who exist only because a certain band existed before. Also, if TSO take forever to make an album and Paul O' Neill's death definitively won't be a speeding factor in that, I welcome more music in the same style, and alternative to Christmas music rather than wearing out TSO's only three Xmas albums.

With Black Sabbath retired would it be so annoying to have a doom metal band clearly and totally inspired by them as long as you genuinely like their songs?

Wizards of Winter; never heard of them, but Greg Smith and John O'Reilly were the rhythm section for the Doogie Howser version of Rainbow back in '95 or so.

And two thumbs up for the press release using "vicarial" correctly in a sentence.  :)   (It means "substitutional" in this context; Steve Brown stepped in for Vivian Campbell when Viv was dealing with an illness.)

Those who didn't know, almost every Finnish metal singer have contributed on a christmas album called Ragnarok Juletide (Raskasta Joulua in Finnish, 4 albums are on Spotify for example) which have some Finnish and some more obscure traditional christmas songs with heavy twist. It have grown a truly big epic concert Hall tour here in Finland and there are vocalists from Finland and other countries as well like Dee Snider, Joe Lynn Turner, Marco Hietala, Tarja Turunen, Tony Kakko and others.

Full album: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL91k-V8EjkgDX1Ac5zY8623YR3sim2gpV

Coming back to this post, since once again I'm in full immersion with the Ragnarok Juletide album and I've decided it's time to explore the rest of their catalogue.

First of all, the finnish language is not a barrier, I listen to Korpiklaani for example, but it is a difficult language and so the titles and the songs they relate to are all a blur to me. So some quick questions:

- It's my understanding that Ragnarok Juletide is a sort of "english greatest hits" of songs found on previous albums sung in finnish, am I right?
- Are all the albums basically this combination of Xmas tunes and original songs (at least I think some are original...), or some are out of this style and maybe to be left for last?

- This is their discography as present on The Metal Archives:

https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Raskasta_Joulua/3540389872

Should I go for the albums named Raskasta Joulua (and 2 and IV), with "Tulkoon joulu -Akustisesti-" being, I assume, an acoustic album?

I know I could just dive right into it, but a little guide of what to expect from songs whose language is basically intelligible and for which I'd have a hard time to associate titles with music  :D

Yeah, it was mentioned in the thread about their other lethal combo, reggaeton and black metal (with the summer hit Norwegian Reggaeton), but it's nice to have it in this list as well  :D

Too soon for a bump?

Ho ho ho, the season's almost upon us and it's time to find new music to hear during December!

First of all, in Orbert's excellent discography thread there's a post dedicated to Jethro Tull's Christmas album, which can be a good choice as any if you're more on the folkish side of Xmas.

Then, on to somehow new stuff:

- The power metal band Majestica, which I didn't really know about, is coming out in a couple of weeks with a concept album about A Christmas Carol. There are two songs out so far, which are a mishmash of power metal music and traditional Xmas themes:

Ghost of Christmas Past
Ghost of Marley

It's a total and complete power metal cheesefest, but so jolly and happy that some might find it actually endearing ;D

- Jon Schaffer reunited with Matt Barlow to give us a Xmas EP!!! the song We Three Kings is out:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCb7And5jUw

- Dee Snider and Lzzy Hale teamed up as well for a new song:

The Magic of Christmas Day

And speaking of Twisted Sister, they did back then a full Christmas album.

- Last year the italian band Temperance made a song called Lost in the Christmas Dream, nice enough to be worth a mention, too bad it ends when it finally seemed it was about to take its stride:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woEVvJkdGrs



Bring on any new Christmas music you enjoy! be it on the metal / rock side or on the folkish / neoceltic / newwaveish style!

So Trans Siberian Orchestra is streaming a concert tonight.....$30. I went ahead and bought it, gonna watch tonight with the Family. My wife and I went to a show a few years back and it was pretty cool. I'm not sure the online experience will be the same but it's something to watch and do with the family. We're all music fans.

I saw two shows from them in back to back years (2018 and 2019) in Ontario, California and they were great shows.  Took my family to last year's show and they enjoyed it.  Would have loved to do it again this year......

Nothing really like TSO, but Big Big Train’s Christmas tune, appropriately titled “Merry Christmas,” is really good, and the companion track “Snowfalls” is even better.

IQ released a very limited amount of a christmas CD last year. Sold out in a day or so.

Even includes an epic

https://youtu.be/rOLxCUucgXI

I discovered this album not long after it came out, and every holiday season since then, I make time to spin it at least a dozen or so times in its entirety. It's a really good album, and the opening and closing tracks in particularly are just classic IQ.

Peter Orullian (ex-Fifth Ange, ex-Heir Apparent) has a new project called Symphony North. Stylistically, it is basically TSO-like, with Peter's story. It even features some former TSO people. Check it out here:

https://www.symphonynorth.com/

Remember this project? it's a double album of classic metal in TSO vein, and as discussed in the years ago, it features Jordan Rudess on an instrumental piece, and James LaBrie singing a full track.

They just posted a "full playthrough" on FB:

https://www.facebook.com/symphonynorthband/videos/304022074263766/

It's not a live performance, what you hear is the studio recording; however you do see every band member playing their parts, as advertised (it's a playthrough, you see them playing along).

Our DT boys make no exception and if you want to see their performances, check Jordan's song, Christmas Wishes, at 24:35, while the song sang entirely by James, Every Doubt has an Answer, is at 1h35:01.

Anyone else who's into TSO should definitively check this album if it flew under their radar, so many brilliant songs on this.
