We have discussed metal Christmas albums here before.  Well, time to add a new release to that list!!!

The classic rock Christmas band is back with a new album called "Star Of The East!  I already have 4 albums of this powerhouse band that has featured people like Phil Bardowell, Chuck Wright, and John Elefante.  Well, they are back with a new full length Christmas album.  (Yes, I realize that the holiday season is almost over.)  This new release features 13 tracks with only onle being a remake of a traditional holiday song.  Appearing on this album are people like John Elefante, Kane Roberts (guitarist at one time for Alice Cooper), Bruce Kulick (formerly of KISS), Chuck Wright (Quiet Riot, Impelletteri) again appears, Mark Slaughter (of Slaughter fame), Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake & Dio), Robin McAuley (McAuley Schenker Group, Survivor), Bill Leverty (Firehouse), and country singer Laura Walsh.  This is truly a super group in the making, and they are all about Christmas.  The cool thing with this band is that most of the songs focus on Jesus with just a small touch of Santa thrown in.

I am SO getting this and listening to it before New Year's rolls around!

Well well, this is interesting, I didn't know this band. Thanks for sharing, I may be adding this to the CD collection but I'm not sure if my wife would be on board. For whatever reason, she wants her christmas music to be tranquil.

And LOL at that customer review Razz

The customer review probably stems from name confusion.  There is a classical Christmas band called Northern Lights Orchestra (notice the "s" in lights).  Just the addition of that one little letter changes everything.  Without the "s", you get an 80's style metal band doing original Christmas songs. With the "s", you get an actual orchestra doing some originals and some covers of classic Christmas songs in a true classical arrangement.

I can somewhat imagine what kind of surprise it must have been for the poor man (I guess).

I wish this wasn't a Christmas themed project.  This album absolutely smokes!  With the all-star lineup, this is NLO taken to a whole new level!
