It’s Sleigher the sequel! Members of Haken, Dream Theater and Protest the Hero have once again ventured South of Lapland for a festive mash-up of two Slayer classics. A year to the day since we featured their debut release (“Seasons Greetings in the Abyss”), we’re back with the sequel.
““South Of Lapland (Santa’s Gory Yuletide)” features alternate lyrics and music written and arranged by guitarists Charlie Griffiths of Haken and illustrator Dan Goldsworthy (Corpsegrinder, Accept, Cradle Of Filth), with lead vocals courtesy of Rody Walker of Protest the Hero. Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) and Ray Hearne (Haken) return for synth and tuba madness, and Jeramie Kling (Inhuman Condition, Venom Inc) has swapped his drum sticks for a microphone. Joining the expedition are Becky from Fury (and recently of Mercyful Fate live), the mysterious Delta Empire on drums, and a host of a 80s toys/characters.
Santa beware – this time… it’s Judgment Sleigh!
