Christmas has never been so heavy! Italian alternative metal band KALAHARI released his own stunning version of Carol of the Bells, full of groovy creepy sections, as well as epic ones! To celebrate the event, the band released a brand-new video for the track: https://bit.ly/3h7GIGd
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!”
This was a very special year for KALAHARI. The band imposed himself as one of the hottest revelations on the international metal scene and his debut EP called Theia has been received very well by the specialized press. The band is working on the songs that will be part of the new album, of which the release date has not been announced yet.
