trans_orch_cover.gifWhat’s your position on beginning and ending a Christmas song with a ponderous, noodle-y guitar solo? I’ll tell you mine – NO. I have a similar view of “symphonic metal” in general (that’s what this stuff is called, apparently).
This is music for people who buy one album a year, and even then it’s only because they’ve got tickets to the live show four months down the line. On Christmas Eve. What do you do at these kind of shows, anyway? Kind of just stand / sit and just do a mid-paced nod for ninety minutes?
See just how wretched it is after the clickage.


The only thing that’s really Christmas-y about this performance is the backdrop. These people are Christmas charlatans. They’re not even Siberian, let alone Trans-Siberian. They’re from New York.
Let’s play “apply Christmas puns to the fact that there are attractive blonde females in the band”, though:

- That’s quite a pair of crackers.
- I wouldn’t mind pulling them.
- I would like to find them in my (or their own) stocking(s).
- Something Something something under the misteltoe.
- Something something something coming down their chimney.
