Protest The Hero, Dream Theater, Haken, Etc. Members Release Christmas-Themed Cover Of Slayer’s “Seasons In The Abyss”


Protest The Hero vocalist Rody Walker fronts a newly released Christmas-themed take on Slayer‘s 1990 gem, “Seasons In The Abyss“. Haken guitarist Charlie Griffith put together this festive take on the track, which also features contributions from Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess, The Absence/Inhuman Condition drummer Jeramie Kling, Cradle Of Filth bassist Daniel Firth, Haken drummer Ray Hearne (on tuba) and guitarist Dan Goldsworthy (My Minds Weapon).

Griffith commented on this seasonally cheery cover:

“Injecting this song with some Christmas cheer worked better than any of us expected! Apparently Jeff Hanneman loved Christmas, so hopefully he would approve of our tribute and I hope we help to spread some musical merriment during yet another Christmas of uncertainty in the pandemic abyss. Thanks to all the guys for joining in with the fun and to Scott Atkins for mixing!”
