Released:
Label: Roadrunner Records
Originally released on December 25, 1985, as the first satanic metal Christmas carol of all time, "No Presents For Christmas" was the legendary vocalist's introductory entry as a solo artist after leaving Mercyful Fate. That's reason enough to make the single a timeless metal keepsake, but toss in the fact that it acted as a blueprint for black metal (as most of Diamond's music/shtick did), as well as being both bizarre as hell and hilarious, and you end up with a rather interesting little tidbit in Diamond's already-impressive oeuvre.
