Winter/Christmas 2021 Playlist

I like to create playlists for fun when I'm not busy. Usually, though, I abandon them soon after. I want this playlist to be a bit different - perhaps not infinitely useful, but I associate all these songs with the season of winter and the winter holidays, and I'll be listening to all these a lot at least for a while. I thought I'd share the songs I included in my digital playlist, maybe you'll find something you like. Many of these are purposely blasphemous - I live surrounded by fundamentalist Christians and they're gonna spend the holidays singing about the birth of Christ - I need me some counterbalance.

1. Dream Theater - Awake
2. Immolation - Close to a World Below
3. Vader - Impressions in Blood
4. Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane
5. Emperor - In the Nightside Eclipse
