A bit delayed this year (it’s hard to find enough time to record with a toddler running around the house :P), but it’s finally here. Please enjoy my yearly Christmas medley!
This time around I’ve mashed up “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Let It Snow” in a progressive metal extravaganza. Somewhat deviating from my usual medley style, this year already starts out pretty heavy and somber instead of the much quieter and softer beginnings of previous years.

Anyway, download it and listen to it. I hope you like it!

For the nerds, this year’s medley was recorded exclusively with my brand new Strandberg Boden OS 8, an 8-string guitar, my old Ibanez ATK-305 bass, and using my Roland TD-9 electronic drum kit. Software-wise, the DAW used was Cubase 8.5 Pro with a good sprinkle of various plugins. The guitars all either go through Peavey Revalver or Overloud TH-2 as amp plugin. The drum sounds are from Toontrack’s excellent Superior Drummer plugin.
