Christmas has never been so heavy! Italian alternative metal band Kalahari have released their own stunning version of the Christmas classic “Carol of the Bells” to cap off a year which has seen them unveil debut EP “Theia” while they continue to work on a debut album!
The story of this cover comes from afar, as the singer Nicola Pellacani tells us: “At the beginning of December 2019, before Coronavirus and other black magics were a thing, the staff from “Legend Club” in Milan reached out to us, inviting Kalahari to take part in the annual “Ugly Xmas Jumper Jam Session”. Requirements to attend? Wear the cringe Xmas sweater you have and play a Xmas song cover. Back then we had very little time to get the song ready, but that is the type of challenge that we Kalahari love! That’s when the first version of our Carol of the Bells came up, and after that beautiful live show, we were left with a bit of hunger to develop more this great Xmas classic, derived from a popular chant.We are super satisfied with the final result, and for this reason we want to thank one more time our dear friend and incredible professional Jonathan Mazzeo, of “The Grid Europe”. Now, we invite you to open your ears, to headbang and we want to wish everybody happy holidays. This is our present for you!”
