BROTHER DIMITRI PAIN: A dinosaur egg!

KRAVEN MORRDETH: I want a new decapitator 3000 double-edged axe with the nonstick gore finish...and someone to turn it into a bass!

RINGMASTER MONTY BLITZFIST: I want to go back to the circus, those bastards kidnapped me you see! Back at the circus I get to whip things in rapid succession!

PRINCESS LUXURY: Wine and swans obviously, same as every year.

xmastree

New Year Resolutions?

DR RABID HELL: To get more Robosex!

BROTHER DIMITRI PAIN: To become MORE pitiless!

KRAVEN MORRDETH: Make sure I get the right person at executions! It turns out people don't feel satisfied when presented with a consolation prize of a lovely goldfish or rabbit if I accidentally slay the wrong person.

RINGMASTER MONTY BLITZFIST: I suppose I should get some therapy to sort out my obsession with whipping things (particularly circus folk).

PRINCESS LUXURY: To put all the swans and all the chavs who say "be ream" in one big arena and make them fight. Oh and to buy more chains. ;)

robinbeckmed

robinbeckmed

BEN FORTE: FALLSTAF

What do you want for Christmas?

To seek out, name and shame all the lying bastards in the music business and then line them up against a wall and shoot the motherf*****s!

weapondanny

OL DRAKE: EVILE

What do you want for Christmas?

1. What do you want for Christmas? Guitar/band gear or money to buy said gear, hahaha. Alternatively some extra time on my hands and a copy of Skyrim; I may avoid this game though, as I've got a feeling it'll ruin my life.

New Year Resolutions?

I never do this, because I always forget about two weeks into the New Year; just like everyone else (don't pretend). I just try to be good and positive all the time. Tying it down to one thing is pointless to me; just like 'good deed for the day', just do good deeds all the time!

reubenarcher

BARRET KLESKO: ALL ELSE FAILS

What do you want for Christmas?

Pretty much anything gear-related, I've been eyeing a new condenser mic for my recording rig.

New Year Resolutions?

My resolution this year is to find three indie bands I really love and produce really kickass albums for all of them.

robinbeckmed

THE HYPE THEORY:

SEAN: Drink more alcohol.

JOSH: I never make any.

TOM: Be more organised

robinbeckmed

SANGUINE

What do you want for Christmas?

TARIN: A hoard of baby bunnies which follow me around, eventually I could train them to pull carts behind them adorned with jingle bell harnesses.

NICK: Justin Bieber's head on a spike of some description (spike is optional - just his head will do).

New Year Resolutions?

TARIN: Normal stuff - exercise more, smoke less, sleep more, speak less, sing more...sex more!

NICK: To hunt down Justin Bieber's family and ensure they stop breeding or just feed them Mcdonalds until their skin goes yellow.

robinbeckmed
'Justin Bieber's head on a spike' (we'll second that)

DAVID GREGOR: MORTA SKULD

What do you want for Christmas?

I would like a BC rich custom Warlock NJ with a case.

New Year Resolutions?

What are your New Year's Resolutions? To play out and tour Europe if that would be possible.

robinbeckmed

izegrim

IZEGRIM

What do you want for Christmas?

Oh my.... an appropriate answer would be something like world peace and no starvation worldwide, right? Well, this is never going to happen so I'm glad my narcissistic personality disorder kicks in. I really hope we finish the shooting of our new videoclip at the end of this year. We've been working on the script, got our actors together and now it's time to get this damn thing taped. Yes, that's what I wish for Christmas, nothing more... nothing less... Oh, and a lot of good single malt whisky of course!

New Year Resolutions?

I quit smoking for about ten years ago and I'm not planning to stop my drinking when I'm going out. One has to enjoy life to the fullest! I really want to play more guitar and have a good time with my friends. This year has been a very busy one with a shitload of interviews and gigs that took some of my precious spare time (but in the end it's been all worth it!). One goal we have set ourselves for 2012 is a European tour. It might not be considered as a real New Year's Resolution, but I am perfectly happy with this new commitment for 2012. Playing live with Izegrim is our passion!

izegrim

JUSTIN MCCONVILLE: HM KIDS

What do you want for Christmas?

A mistress.

New Year Resolutions?

To make some good money and travel more.

xmastree

JAMES MONTEITH: TESSERACT

What do you want for Christmas?

A new laptop to replace our seven-year-old Dell, a new soundcard to back up the one we use live, an AxeFX 2, a communal fleshlight for the tour bus, some detol wipes, some new clothes that aren't band shirts, lots of wine, cheese, meat and to be with my family.

New Year Resolutions?

Learn how to make my own doner kebab.

voodoohighway

FILIPPO CAVALLINI: VOODOO HIGHWAY

What do you want for Christmas?

Peace in the world, the end of the crisis and a truck full of libidinal girls.

New Year Resolutions?

To make those girls happy, work hard in life, music and in all the human things and maybe, if there is time, get rich beyond our wildest dreams. :)

voodoohighway

MARSHALL 'FUCKING' BECK: REIGN OF VENGEANCE

What do you want for Christmas?

Brutality, Bloodshed, Death and fun.

New Year Resolutions?

What does the word 'resolutions' mean?

robinbeckmed

MATT MITCHELL: FURYON

What do you want for Christmas?

Right now it would be great to have a good deal in place for our album 'Gravitas' plus future albums. Oh...and maybe some scandalous beauties in stockings too. ;)

New Year Resolutions?

New Year's resolutions are to work our asses off even more to get this band and it's songs out to the masses. And enjoy ourselves in the process.

robinbeckmed
'Scandalous beauties in stockings...'

THE GARDNERZ

What do you want for Christmas?

Well since I don't celebrate it, I don't want anything. Okay, I have one wish, that people would grow up and put a end to this Christmas nonsense.

New Year Resolutions?

I don't celebrate New Year's either, maybe I'm too much of a cynic, but why should I celebrate this rocket/firecrackers salesman's wetdream.

xmastree

FLORIAN RAVET: NEPHELIUM

What do you want for Christmas?

X-box live gold account (my gamertag is flamby666 - if you want to share I'll be happy to play with Metalheads).

New Year Resolutions?

My resolution for the new year will be 1024x768.

xmastree

DIVA SUICIDE

What do you want for Christmas?

ANDRE: I'd like my first guitar back. That's one thing I regret selling.

MAX: A pair of unbreakable drumsticks.

DAV aka DJ GRUDGE: To play a game for AC Milan.

New Year Resolutions?

-XS-: Well, Im not gonna give up sweets or chocolate, so maybe something easier like stop stealing cool accessories from my band mates!

ANDRE: To watch less hip-hop videos LOL.

MAX: Learn all of the new Animals As Leaders songs

DAV-aka DJ GRUDGE: To get better at football on the Playstation!

xmastree

LIVIN IN A VALVESTATE

What do you want for Christmas?

A sacrificial bloody goat offering laid upon a black moldy altar encrusted with satanic semen and a choir of dead children singing from the Book Of The Dead...no, just kidding, I don't own a Book Of The Dead. I love Cchristmas. I really do! I want all my family together drinking some Solstice mead with a belly full food. Maybe a cup of hot cocoa with snow falling outside the window. Me, my kids and wife will all be wearing our finest turtle-necks while I puff my tobacco pipe. haha! But seriously a BC Rich Pro X Bich or Warlock would be excellent!!

New Year Resolutions?

Get on tour with TYW is number one! Finish our EP, 'Vulture Eyes', and have our next full-length written by the end of the year. To not be working for anybody but myself!!!

xmastree
