Very Nice Mix!I love it when a band mixes elements of rock, metal, & prog into something as classic as Christmas music. This is very well done and keeps the melody recognizable with additional guitar riffs and harmonies that spice things up and feed the rock fan within. I can hear the LA influence as well as really nice rhythmic grooves throughout. I would definitely like to hear more from these guys. Great Work!
God Rest Ye MerryPowerful bit of buzz driven Christmas here. It could only be better if I was still inclined to partake in those merry chocolate brownies of my Xmas youth. I love how the rhythm sets the edge at the start for the riffs to play around. Kind of sets an 'on the edge of your seat tension' though after 3 mins I realize the tune isn't going to kick the ass of Xmas off the stage...sad face )-: I love the tune, but would love it more to build onto a final 80's heavy metal explosion of Xmas madness. Keep it up boys...you almost have a genre of your own...X-as thrash metal! I'd love to hear that album!!
God Rest Ye Merry GentlemenThis is a tough song to review. There is nothing to say about the writing. The song has stood the test of time. No melodic surprises. No dazzling displays of virtuosity superior to all other rock guitarists. No lyrics or vocals used. What there is, is an attempt to make a familiar thing just interesting enough through an Outfall approach, to make us want to listen. The arrangement itself is not boring and at the right time of the year will have enough appeal to be added to playlists. The production is good overall and if I can't rave about it, it's probably because I've OD'd on traditional Christmas songs. It may be my fault that I didn't want to listen before I heard it. It is to their credit that I feel slightly more positive about it all now. So thumbs up. If we're in the mood for a Christmas song, this is just unique enough to make me want to pick it over an alternative.
God REst Ye...A bit of a Spanish Flamenco tone of persuasion on the percussion throughout. As always these musicians are really inspiring with well executed instrumentals. Guitar riffs lift you up out of your seat! I especially like the percussion which calls to mind an image of a room full of men clapping to the beat and even dancing. May God Give You Rest All Ye Merry Gentle Men of Outfall.
Original take on an iconic carolWell, it is that time of year! Very original adaptation. Christmas music for heavy rock fans, you could run with this an do a whole CD by next Christmas! All instrumentation well done, but as a guitarist I especially enjoyed the lead guitar soloing.
God Rest Ye Merry GentlemenThis was a great rendition of a Christmas classic! I especially enjoyed the electric guitar solos in this song. The drums seemed to be a bit off, but the bass guitar was. Keep up the great work!
Out of season?Wouldn’t normally be expecting to listen to a carol out of Yuletide and season but here goes. Have to say it started off disappointingly and tried its very hardest to get out of the predictable rut but unfortunately although I can fully appreciate the artistry of the guitarist there’s only so much you can do with a familiar verse and chorus as this one and if as in this you use predominantly guitars and the distortion pedal to try and make a difference. I’m sorry it became predictable and monotonous I really don’t know what could havebren done to it to achieve any semblance of a tubular bells and Mike Oldfield effect. Sorry
Bello questo rockQuesto rock pop cristiano ricorda atmosfere di un tempo e lo si ascolta volentieri la chitArra conduttrice ci guida nel nirvana e ci tiene attaccati all'ascolto bravi viene voglia di sentirvi ancora ciao

Nice demo instrumental of a great Christmas songGreat interpretation of the old hymn we've all been singing for centuries. Nice guitar work. God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen is an English traditional Christmas carol. It is in the Roxburghe Collection, and is listed as no. 394 in the Roud Folk Song Index. It is also known as Tidings of Comfort and Joy, and by variant incipits as Come All You Worthy Gentlemen; God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen; God Rest Ye, Merry Christians; or God Rest You Merry People All. It is one of the oldest extant carols, dated to the 16th century or earlier. The earliest known printed edition of the carol is in a broadsheet dated to c. 1760. The traditional English melody is in the minor mode; the earliest printed edition of the melody appears to be in a parody, in the 1829 Facetiae of William Hone. It had been traditional and associated with the carol since at least the mid-18th century, when it was recorded by James Nares under the title "The old Christmas Carol". The carol is referred to in Charles Dickens' 1843 A Christmas Carol: "... at the first sound of 'God bless you, merry gentlemen! May nothing you dismay!', Scrooge seized the ruler with such energy of action that the singer fled in terror, leaving the keyhole to the fog and even more congenial frost." This carol also is featured in the second movement of the 1927 Carol Symphony by Victor Hely-Hutchinson.
God Rest Ye Merry GentlemanNice attention to notes and classic styling with a nice rock touch... however, have you missed the nature of the song with the kind of all one sound across the board... There is little change in tone or dynamics... It appears all in your face. Try to add some magical touch... start not only small but soft and build it to the end with the exciting guitar licks... So, for me 5 on excellence of playing, but a 3 on producing... with too much of the same old same... Great work.
Love it if you loveListening to a 8th grader rendition of a classic public domain song. Just in time to cash in on the holy days.best I can say is I like the the crunchiness and the very ending of the song oh how glad I was when it finally sputtered to its ungodly demise. It left me feeling like I puked all over my,Christmas tree. Sorry this songo is el stinko.

Different kind of ChristmasHave yourself a different kind of Christmas with Outfall's rendition of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", a rock and roll send up of the classic tune. Outfall has taken a page from Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Mannheim Steamroller. The song is almost all lead guitar, and most of it just playing the melody straight, with attitude, but very clean, while the bass lays down a high-drama, funky beat in the background.
