German metal queen Doro Pesch recently announced the release of the "official" Christmas anthem for all metalheads.
"I had a feeling the time was right to record a song for Christmas," says Doro. "I am recording my new album right now, which should be out by next summer. While doing this, I suddenly came up with a fitting melody and lyrics."
Entitled "Merry Metal X-Mas", the track is performed by Doro and features a guest appearance by bassist/vocalist Thomas "Angelripper" Such of German thrash metal veterans SODOM.
"I definitely wanted something loud and funny," Doro explains.
"Merry Metal X-Mas" will be released December 9, 2011 and will be available as digitial download and limited seven-inch vinyl single (Christmas tree green).
A five-minute video clip of Doro talking about "Merry Metal X-Mas" can be seen below.
