Haken guitarist Charlie Griffith has recruited one hell of a lineup for this Christmas-themed cover of Slayer's "Seasons In The Abyss," now christened Sleigher's "Seasons Greetings In The Abyss." The cover features keyboardist Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater, Liquid Tension Experiment), drummer Jeramie Kling (The Absence, Inhuman Condition), bassist Daniel Firth (Cradle Of Filth), drummer-turned-tuba-player Ray Hearne (Haken), and guitarist Dan Goldsworthy (My Minds Weapon).
"Injecting this song with some Christmas cheer worked better than any of us expected!" said Griffith. "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!
