This is what happens when Metal meets Christmas Obsession
Prosthetic Records' Starkill released a thrashing cover of Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas is You. While the song doesn't stray too far in melody, the massive kick drums and sweeping guitar solos make bring excitement to a song we've all heard one too many times.
Starkill's Parker Jameson says "We decided to pay homage to one of our favorite tracks of all time do a cover of this Mariah Carey classic."
It's no secret the band is a fan of Christmas music and with a vocalist like Sarah Lynn Collier, how could the band pass up the opportunity to make a Christmas classic an epic metal song? Maybe it'll even melt your Grinch heart as well as your face.
STARKILL's cover of "All I Want for Christmas is You" is available now via all digital retailers. Get yours here: http://smarturl.it/StarkillXmas
From the Editor, reflecting on Kesha's experience through my own lens but also through my cousin's, my own as an abuse survivor, and my choice to make time to listen to other survivors.
