12-5-09 A Very BRUTAL Christmas: Dethklok – Burn the Earth

Posted by Sean on December 5, 2009

Ah, Christmas. A time of Peace on Earth, Joy to the World and Massive Consumer Debt to Pretty Much Everybody. A time when we gather our family and desperately try to act like Shiny Happy TV People.

Not me. My mood is a tad different in December, to the point where, in the immortal words of Spider Jerusalem, I feel like taking a shit in a baptismal font.

I don’t know where this mood comes from. Maybe it’s the shortening days and my depression. Maybe it’s my pagan side responding to the impending death and rebirth of Sol Invictus.

Or, most probably, it comes from being force-fed Perfect Christmas Treacle for over a month.

All I know is that, for some reason, I suddenly develop a powerful hunger for double bass pedals and power chords after Thanksgiving.

This is why I’m kicking off A Very BRUTAL Christmas here at One Neat Thing a Day: one metal video a day until I get sick of it. It’s a Cherished Christmas Tradition here, like Christmas trees and writing hysterical letters to the editor about how the cashier at the grocery store wished me Happy Holidays instead of a Merry Christmas.

Our first offering is Burn The Earth, one of my favorite songs from Dethklok and available on Dethalbum II. I like Metalocalypse. The absurdity, the stupidity, the violence and the general pagan vibe of the cartoon meshes rather well with my mood around the holiday season.

You may say that Dethklok isn’t metal, but just a parody of metal from, at best, a virtual band. But then, you’d be forgetting four very important things:

  1. I like Dethklok.
  2. I have a blog.
  3. You don’t.
  4. Nyah nyah nyah.
