Ho ho ho! Santa Sabbath is coming to a chimney near you this holiday season! Our debut CD has six all-new holiday classics, all set to the music of Black Sabbath. 

Formed in Los Angeles in 2008, Santa Sabath was born one magic night when founder Bob Lee (The Freeks, The Amadans, Clawhammer, Mike Watt) was presented with an opportunity to do a Christmas show with his cover band The Bob Lee, and had two competing notions - should they do a set of Christmas songs, like "I Wish It Could Be Christmas very Day" and "Father Christmas", or do a set of Black Sabbath songs. Santa himself came to visit Bob that night, and told him that he shouldn't choose - he should do both at once. That night, the core of the Santa Sabbath discography was conceived.

With its current lineup of guitarist Jonathan Hall (Backbiter, The Freeks, Angry Samoans, Motorcycle Black Madonnas), Pat Hoed (The Black Widows, Brujeria, Down By Law) on bass and John Collinson (Leather Hyman, Motorcycle Black Madonnas, The Golden Rulers) on drums, the band recorded at the studio of Justin Burrill in a single nine-hour session. The six completed tracks comprise five Christmas songs with re-written lyrics, as well as our tribute to Hanukkah, with lyrics to warm the heart and comfort the soul, and music to chill you to the bone and set your antlers to banging.

If you like your holiday music deep, dark and forbidding, look no further. Santa Sabbath makes a great gift for the discerning metalhead on your shopping list. Even better, at the office Christmas party, you can switch off the Mariah Carey CD, put this on and get the party really going!

"CHILDREN OF THE SLEIGH" CD FEATURES COVER ART BY RENOWNED ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER EDWARD COLVER.
