Editorial Reviews

August Burns Red will release August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin' Hill, A Holiday Album on October 9th!

The 13-track release features not only fresh takes on classics such as Jingle Bells, Winter Wonderland and even Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, but also original compositions that are destined to become future headbanging holiday favorites. The album also compiles remixed and remastered versions of the band s previous holiday hits, like O Come, O Come Emmanuel, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and Little Drummer Boy. Rounding out the collection is an updated version of the band s rendition of Carol of the Bells, heard in Frank Miller s (300, Sin City) movie The Spirit and Seth MacFarlane s (Family Guy) American Dad.

The idea of doing a full Christmas album has been floating around in the August Burns Red camp for a few years now, but what always held us back was finding the time and energy to write an additional full-length in between touring and writing our regular records, explains guitarist and principle songwriter JB Brubaker. After finishing [2011 s] Leveler I finally felt inspired enough to tackle the Christmas album idea.

After working with some of the biggest producers in the genre, the band chose to come home and work at Lancaster's Atrium Audio with longtime friends Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland on Sleddin' Hill, which finds August Burns Red at its most ambitious and creative. It s a work that enhances the guitar and drum mastery August Burns Red are known for by adding unexpected elements such as banjo, violin, cello, piano and even horns.

Because this was such a different type of album, I was able to get a little more wild with my influences, confesses Brubaker. There s a section inspired by one of my favorite bands, BEIRUT. There s also guitar solo that is an ode to Blue Album-era WEEZER, and my punk roots are evident all over the album.

Writing metal versions of Christmas songs has always been a challenge for me because the songs are driven by simple vocal melodies with the only variety in the lyrics. We decided to take the songs and go the instrumental route - the main melodies are there, but this record has a lot more to it then that, he adds. The songs have sections of music that flow in and out of the classic melodies we've all come to recognize. There is a lot of substance in these songs- more than you'd find in your typical cover.

On whether Sleddin Hill is destined to become a novelty album or a key part of the band s discography, Brubaker has the final word: To some, the concept of a metal Christmas album may come off as silly and a waste of time, but I think this record has plenty of original August Burns Red substance to interest even the biggest Scrooges out there.

ABR comes back with another great, although very different, release. If you liked their early Christmas rendition of Carol of the Bells, or ABR in general, you'll love Sleddin' Hill. I highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Metal Christmas! February 22, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Love Christmas music but, I'm always looking for energetic versions of the classics. I am a Heavy Metal/Metal enthusiast and August Burns Red knows how to deliver. Their interpretation of the songs on this album are right on the mark. I can listen to this selection just about any time of the year and rock out.

Ever since they covered Carol of the Bells I have been wanting August Burns Red to make a Christmas album and then they started releasing a Christmas song about every year just drawing out the agony and now finally they have released a full album and it does not disappoint!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, just wow. Exactly what I've been looking for October 16, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Every single year I look for Christmas music that is Rock style, and every year I am disappointed. Not this year!!! This is the album I've been waiting for!

Songs are great. My wife is not a heavy metal/rock person and she likes the album too. I am a heavy metal/rock person and I love it!

I've never seen an album with such a high rating, and there's a good reason. These don't come along very often. Rock your holidays this year!

I've loved August Burns Red for a while now so when this album came out for Christmas, I had to have a copy. This band has an amazingly diverse style which makes their music never boring.

We fell in love with ABR after the release of their brilliantly executed CAROL OF THE BELLS. This album brings the masterful touch of August Burns Red to Christmas. A Christmas album must-have for this family!
