Top 10 Original Metal Christmas Songs

By original I mean metal songs that aren't covers of popular Christmas songs.
Metal covers of original metal Christmas songs are OK.

Example: Little Drummer Boy by Theocracy doesn't count but No Presents for Christmas by Exhumed does, because it's a metal cover of an original metal song by King Diamond.

The Top Ten

1 Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24) - Savatage

Merry Metal Xmas, metalheads! - Metal_Treasure

Most of you probably know this song thanks to Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
Trans-Siberian Orchestra originated in the 90s as a side project of the Savatage members but later included hundreds of other musicians.
Jon Oliva is an incredible metal musician who is the mastermind behind both bands - Savatage and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. - Metal_Treasure

2 All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy

"Santa had to close up his workshop sometime after Christmas '09. 'Cause sadly the economy's a mess and jobs are hard to find [...] Santa went to work in a coal mine and the irony is perfectly clear - he's got zero toys for the girls and boys. I guess we've all been bad this year." - Metal_Treasure

3 Wynter Fever - Theocracy

"It's Christmas Eve, but life is dull, just business as usual". - Metal_Treasure

4 No Presents for Christmas - King Diamond
5 X-M@$ - Corey Taylor

It's a reliable axiom that the more any "entertainer" relies on gratuitous expletives, or reflexive iconoclasm, the less actual talent they possess. Holds true for this consummate tool.

6 Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24) - Trans - Siberian Orchestra

This is the Savatage song that became more popular. - Metal_Treasure

7 Wizards in Winter - Trans Siberian Orchestra
8 A Mad Russian's Christmas - Trans Siberian Orchestra
9 Rudolph vs. Frosty - Theocracy
10 Christmas - King Diamond

The Contenders

11 Jingle Balls - Korn
12 No Presents for Christmas - Exhumed

King Diamond death metal cover. - Metal_Treasure

13 Christmas Canon Rock - Trans-Siberian Orchestra

This song is partly original because is a variation of Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D Major, with lyrics and new music added. - Metal_Treasure

14 The Christmas Song - Korn
15 The Stocking Song - Steel Panther

A song with dirty lyrics, so listen to it at your discretion. - Metal_Treasure
