The Melodic Metal band from Georgia (and not the short-lived Christian band of the same name), Theocracy, has been doing the annual Christmas single thing for nearly a decade. The band started out as a one-man project in 2003, Matt Smith playing every instrument and providing every voice on the eponymous album debut. A drummer and guitarist were added and, in 2005, Theocracy released their first official Christmas song, "Little Drummer Boy". Now a five piece, they've released a Christmas song every year since except last year. The Christmas singles exhibit a great deal of diversity--some rocking Heavy and some less so. This year's track, "Night Of Silence", is a bit of a throwback to the days of the "power ballad". "Night Of Silence" is absolutely gorgeous. Beginning acoustic, gradually the voices come in. Then the drums. Then "Silent Night" becomes the counterpoint running underneath. All building to a crescendo before the closing piano notes. Really, for fans of Classic Rock bands like Journey and Poison, this is the Christmas song you've waited your whole life for. And I think it might be the best thing Theocracy's ever recorded. And that's saying something. Brilliant arrangement. Gorgeous song. And.... you can get it free (along with all the band's previous Christmas songs). Just register for the Theocracy Club of Souls. Registration is free. They expect to have a new album out in 2015 and it sounds like they're in top form so I can't wait.
