The season of yuletide cheer is upon us: hot beverages in front of a fire, gift exchanges with family and friends, songs in the key of winter. For those of you who prefer to raise your voice in less, shall we say, conventional choruses, the kind folks over at the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society have composed 50 Lovecraftian Solstice Carols just in time for the holidays. From It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Fish-Men to We Wish You a Scary Solstice, these clever send-ups are delightfully twisted versions of traditional holiday songs with lyrics firmly planted in the Cthulhu mythos.
You can listen to more songs via aabeeceed’s YouTube channel, or support the HPLHS by purchasing the albums or sheet music for your own Cthulhu Christmas, Haiogh-Yai Hanukkah, or whatever other Yule Horror you’re dreaming of this time of year.

If you like your music heavy and darker you should look into Twisted Sister’s Christmas album. Unique versions of Christmas classics. Nice post.
I bet I still have Stay Hungry on vinyl around here somewhere. I didn’t realize they did a Christmas album!
Yeah, they really blast out some Christmas tunes on it. I always add it to my rotation on Pandora during the holidays.
