Creepmas Carols from Gothic Maestro Aurelio Voltaire

Aurelio Voltaire is a goth cabaret artist, filmmaker, author, and all-around Renaissance man. He is witty and charming, his songs are dark and catchy, and he is one handsome gentleman! I have been a fan of his work for quite some time now, but I never realized he had several funny, creepy Christmas carols, stories, and even a Halloween/Christmas cross-over book!

I've posted a few of these delightful ditties below:

"X-Mess Detritus" (narrated by Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance) - A creepy stop-motion animation that questions the commercialism of Christmas and implores us to focus on the real meaning of the season.

"Twas the Night Before Black Mass" - Where Voltaire and his trusty sidekick re-work the classic carol into something much gothier.

The Legend of Candy Claws read by Aurelio Voltaire - Voltaire reads his own book about a giant bat steals candy from bullies on Halloween and delivers it to good little boys and girls on Christmas morning in this anti-bullying tale for children of all ages.

"Santa Claus is Satan" - Damn catchy and Voltaire makes some good points...
