X Files-mas: Zombies

There are as many people alive today as all who have died before. So, the return of the dead seems an even deal if they wanna get into it, yeah?

Zombies do the most damage wen they’re a surprise. Captain Ambivalent makes this point with jug band panache in his “Merry Christmas, Zombies!” It starts in the mall…. Amazed! (me)

Luke Smith is early on with the outbreak in his “Christmas Zombie Girlfriend.” A pop love ballad sees him sending her after you. Cute.

The Dollyrots take us through the infestation with the surprising “I Saw Mommy Biting Santa Claus.” Excellent story telling, with super cool rock.

Less helpful is the parody “Grandma Got Half Eaten by a Zombie” by Wretched Graverobber. Lots of metal to little effect. Yeah, that happened. (Not to mention–please don’t–“We Wish You a Zombie Christmas” from Mike Puccio. Yawn)

That opens the door for “Zombie Claus (Rob Zombie Dragula Parody).” Metal from Psychostick sticks the landing.

But now we have to deal with “Santa is a Zombie.” Indie playful with an edge from Surrounded by Werewolves.

More rote, the metal of “Tim the Christmas Zombie” seems to go through the motions. Dr. Scythe works hard for the humdrum though.

It takes a minute for “I Saw Zombies Eating Santa (Xmas No. 666 Hit)” to get metal. Strange Nocturnal thinks they’ve made a movie. But the result is all mood, no movement. Somewhat impressive.

More appropriately (given the heritage of the zombie), Brass Tax use a Caribbeat for their cinematic excursion “Zombie Christmas.”

Zombie Apocalypse Christmas” by Candy Head and Tim Lane is driving Brit pop rock with lightness to the grisliness.

Hopefully, “there won’t be any zombies on christmas” according to  rushmore beekeepers. This folk rambling spins what-ifs from here to there. Don’t spoil Christmas dinner by shooting everyone in the head, ‘kay?

Inca Jones diverges with “Christmas Eve is the Time for Zombie Albums.” The title is the lyrics on a loop, yet mytifine electronica.

Vista Blue rock those blues with “My Zombie Christmas Song.” Indie reflective with shotgun.

Kepi Ghoulie keeps it symbolic with his “Christmas on Zombie Island.” Folk rocks the agenda, you brain-dead consumers you.

More upbeat David Ritter lounge pops “White Zombie Christmas.” Run and hide! But with pep in your step, two three four….

Retro girl rock from TAME also resuscitates “Zombie Christmas.” Something dead and dull shall rise and dance!

Uh Ohs include Godzilla in their zombie Christmas apocalypse with the sweet folk pop of “Nobody Said.” If only somebody had said something, like on a TV show or something.

Emmy the Great and Tim Wheeler return us to the movie making with their “Zombie Christmas” masterpiece. Club rock with suspense.
