Because who doesn’t want an extreme metal version of Wham’s “Last Christmas?”

“Last Christmas” from Wham may just be the second-most popular contemporary holiday song, right behind Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You.” In fact, the song is vying for the coveted #1 at Christmas single in the UK this week.

Me? I think it’s a little too sweet, especially for 2020. That’s why I’m opting for this extreme metal version from Allegaeon featuring guest appearances from Travis Ryan of Cattle Decapitation and Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder. It’s lovely, really.
