The Most Metal Christmas Light Shows
Ever since the amazing display of Christmas lights set to Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Wizards In Winter" that was so popular it was even used for a beer commercial, setting your lights to music has becomes more popular despite the need for technical know-how to pull it off. One might think that these displays are largely dominated by Trans-Siberian Orchestra songs - and they'd be right - but there are some people that are metal enough to have the balls to set them to heavier songs, making putting together this list worth the effort and sharing. So here is our top metal Christmas lights list, pulled from the Interwebs:

11. Metallica - "Enter Sandman"
Good song choice, but the light show could use a little more work. Don't worry, we're just getting warmed up here...

10. Trans-Siberian Orchestra - "Boughs of Holly"

Nice song, simple light show. It's pretty bright and I sure wouldn't want to be their neighbors though.

9. Metallica - "Of Wolf And Man"
Lights display is pretty simple, working with the driving beat of Metallica's "Of Wolf And Man." It's not the most inviting song for Christmas dinner, that's for sure.

8. Heavy Metal Christmas?
A decent light show to a song I can't quite place. A little help?

7. Metallica - "For Whom The Bell Tolls"
You really could not pick a better song for a distinct beat and guitar parts for such a light display. Still, the actual display could use some work to make it more interesting, but it's a solid #7.

6. Twisted Sister - "Let it Snow"
Great rockin' song on it's own, but it makes for a bit of a chaotic light show.

5. Trans-Siberian Orchestra - "Christmas Eve in Sarajevo"
"Christmas Eve in Sarajevo" is a nice song, but not all that metal. Both of the houses below feature a decent light show set to this song, however, so let's call it a tie.

2008 Symphony in Lights Contest Finalist, Marshalltown

Trans-Siberian Orchestra - "Christmas Eve in Sarajevo" (another, this one from 2007)

4. Trans-Siberian Orchestra - "Nutcracker"
Now we're getting to the better light displays. Paired with an excellent TSO song, this is some top notch work.

3. Jeff Scott Soto - "We Wish You a Merry Xmas"
With an alternate chorus of "We wish you a metal Christmas," this modest setup is quite effective right up through the chaotic ending.

2. Trans-Siberian Orchestra - "Wizards In Winter"
TSO's "Wizards in Winter" is likely the light show that really blew up this fad, if not started it all, and this video goes down as a classic.

1. Slayer - "Reign In Blood"
You just can't beat Slayer, and with the nice touch of the wall of red "raining blood," these folks have hands down created the most metal Christmas lights display by far!
