China Tosinthiti One of my favorite rearrangement of Christmas songs! Great blend of technical death metal, brutal death metal, and symphonic metal.

dawg This is a grand reimagining of a classic Christmas hymn with a theatrical presentation that paints it in such terrifying beauty. Merry Christmas! Favorite track: O Come Emmanuel (The One Foretold).

about

Blood Thirsty Mooresville, North Carolina

Brutal Symphonic Death Metal.
Crushing 8-string guitars, blast beats, double kicks, and snarling bass set the foundation for Blood Thirsty. Guttural growls, high shrieks, and shredding guitar solos focus the listener in while the symphony orchestra and choirs fill the air with epic, haunting atmosphere. Each song has its own life with lyrics influenced by the Holy Scriptures. ... more

Track Name: O Come Emmanuel (The One Foretold)
CHILD:
O come, O come, Emmanuel and ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here until the Son of God appears
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee O Israel

MAGI:
Traversing westward from afar
We beheld the rising of the star
Tell us where the child was born
The One foretold
Crown to be worn

HEROD:
Priests and teachers, come draw near
Greatly disturbing, this prophecy here
That out of Bethlehem, birth foretold
But I am the king, it’s mine to uphold!
To be dethroned is what I fear
Call the Magi, bring them here
With my command, you are beguiled
Search ye carefully for this child

MAGI:
We have finally found the one
The Son of God
His will be done
Treasures to the child we bring
Glory to the newborn King

NARRATOR:
Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

ANGEL 1:
To the Magi I speak of impending conspirant
Return to your land, avoiding the tyrant

HEROD:
Slaughter the children, two years and under
Weeping and mourning, hearts torn asunder

ANGEL 1:
Joseph arise, take the child and Mary
To Egypt you go and do not tarry

HEROD:
This kingdom is mine, spare not one breath
If it’s the last thing I do, I’ll go to my death

ANGEL 1:
Joseph, get up! The reason you fled
The ones who were killing have now become dead
Of Herod I speak, the tyrant’s deceased
With your family, it’s time to go East

NARRATOR:
Upon the learning of Herod’s descent
Back to the land of Israel they went
But when Herod’s son reigned in his stead
The family went forth to Nazareth instead
Thus fulfilling words what prophets foreseen
That the Christ would be called a Nazarene

ANGELS:
O come, O come, Emmanuel and ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here until the Son of God appears
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel has come to thee O Israel
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices
O night divine, O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, O night divine
