As the song progresses so do the lyrics, from all warm and fuzzy to outright bizarre and creepy.

Christmas and heavy metal have always walked a thin white line. From satanic anthems celebrating gift giving (“No Presents For Christmas” – King Diamond) to entire albums featuring metalized Christmas songs (A Twisted ChristmasTwisted Sister), the winter holidays have always been a time of good cheer.

Psychostick is a comedic heavy metal act that is sure make your season jolly. Active since 2000, the group began in Tempe, Arizona but now resides full-time in Chicago, Illinois.

Psychostick is known for their high-profile parodies and their new visual, “Zombie Claus”, is surly one of their best.  A seasonal homage to Rob Zombie’s “Dragula”, “Zombie Claus” re-visualizes Rob’s masterpiece into something absurdly grim. As the song progresses so do the lyrics, from all warm and fuzzy to outright bizarre and creepy.

The correlations between this video and the 2005 film Santa’s Slay, a Christmas slasher staring famed wrestler Bill Goldberg as Santa Claus, is not unfounded. The ghoulish eyes of Saint Nick are nothing short of morbid.

From evil elves to scantily clad women the replay ability of this endeavor is more than up your chimney, it’s through the roof!

Celebrate the holidays with Psychostick! Check out “Zombie Claus” and let the spirit of the season infect you! \m/
