Sicilian Artists For Charity release symphonic metal “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” cover

The Sicilian Artists for Charity project is back with a new explosive Christmas cover song rearranged in a symphonic metal style.

The Sicilian combo, with a new line-up, presents “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” the famous Christmas anthem written by John Lennon & Yoko Ono. It’s now available on YouTube and through digital distribution via Rockshots Records. Singer Laura Macrì from the band MaYaN is the one of the new members in the song.

Once again the piece is arranged for the orchestra by Salvo Grasso (Hypersonic, Metatrone, Astralium) with the collaboration of guitarist Salvo Calà. Mixing & Mastering by Riccardo Samperi at TRP MUSIC Studio. Cover Artwork & graphics by Salvo Grasso, video editing by Antonio Gueli, Salvo Grasso and Salvo Calà. The full line-up is under the video!

The song is linked to an IBAN payment allocated to the Onlus Association “Amici delle missioni Sicilia” made up of health workers (doctors and nurses) and secular people from Sicily (Italy) who support through health aid and economic /social support activities (construction of schools and water wells, long distance adoptions, nutritional centers, maternal/child support) some populations of Guinea Bissau.
