A Dream Collaboration Between  Vocalist GLENN HUGHES & Guitarist TRACII GUNS

A Dream Collaboration Between Vocalist GLENN HUGHES & Guitarist TRACII GUNS

15th November 2023 0 By John Deaux

Since the release of the first single from a pair of Christmas-themed metal records, a killer version of ‚ÄúAll I Want For Christmas Is You‚ÄĚ featuring Tim ‚ÄúRipper‚ÄĚ Owens, Ron ‚ÄúBumblefoot‚ÄĚ Thal and David Ellefson, word has begun to spread far and wide, glad tidings of a bountiful harvest of heavy metal interpretations of Holiday favorites coming to CD and vinyl. Now comes the release of another majestic single, from the second of the two compilations, A Very Metal Christmas II, a divinely-inspired collaboration between two legendary metal figures.


Traditional Christmas songs can be fun and catchy, often sentimental and maudlin, but rarely are they epic. Enter ‚ÄúO Holy Night.‚ÄĚ This 19th-century composition tests the vocal range of even the most seasoned of seasonal singers. That‚Äôs why when choosing the singer for this particular track, there was one clear choice, the widely revered ‚ÄúVoice Of Rock‚ÄĚ himself, Glenn Hughes. Hughes belts out an absolutely breathtaking version of this sacred favorite, and he is ably supported by the king of Los Angeles six-string slingers, Tracii Guns, who match Hughes‚Äôs vocal pyrotechnics with some virtuoso playing of his own!
