Topic: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Another Musical Advent Calendar!
Last year, partially on whim, partially as a joke, I decided to challenge myself to record 24 covers of a Christmas tune - one every day, and each one in a different musical style. I really enjoyed the challenge, and have decided to continue it this year.
While last year I did Carol of the Bells, this year I decided on something different. It wouldn't be a challenge otherwise. One of my favorite Christmas songs is God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. So I decided that this year, it would be my tune of choice.
So, without further ado, I present for your listening pleasure - 24 covers of the traditional Christmas classic, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, for the 24 days until Christmas! Let's hope we can still all enjoy this song afterwards.
Just click on the images to be taken to each cover! (Youtube) Every cover will be uploaded around 10:00-10:30 pm EST.
To start us off, here's a bonus little gift for you all: An unreleased cover from last year. One of the many styles I wanted to do was Metal/Djent, but didn't really like how it was turning out - and scrapped it. Now, you can hear it (with a slightly tweaked mix) in it's full glory - The Carol of the Bells that never was.
