Season’s Bleedings 2010-2011: White Wizzard

December 10th, 2010

We’ve asked a shit-ton of  people from the world of heavy metal all sorts of old nonsense about Christmas. You give a shit, right? First up – Peter Ellis, (current) vocalist in White Wizzard.

White Wizzard Peter Ellis Thrash Hits

Do you have any particular or unusual Christmas traditions?
Not any more but when I was a kid I would always go and sing Christmas carols door to door on Christmas and New Year’s eve every year. It’s a big tradition in Greece. Kids go out from the early hours of the morning on these two days and sing Christmas songs door to door for sweets or pocket money. I used to make a ton of money every Christmas doing that since people would usually give me more money that most kids because I had a good voice and I was doing it well – some of those kids were awful!

Aren’t we all getting a bit bored of bands looking back with a sense of nostalgia they aren’t possibly old enough to feel? There’s only so much ironic pastiche/tribute you can take. The complete absence of either sickening nostalgia or knowing parody is why Holy Grail succeed where most fail. They aren’t taking the piss or just having a laugh – they sound like they mean it.
