As I Lay Dying Frontman to Release Second Austrian Death Machine Christmas Single
Two full releases into the career of his Arnold Schwarzenegger thrash parody band Austrian Death Machine, As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis still can’t get enough old Ahhhhnold movies.
On Dec. 6, the Death Machine will release its second Christmas single, ‘Jingle All the Way,’ with songs based on the the titular 1996 family comedy, which co-starred the former California governor and Sinbad, and featured Phil Hartman, James Belushi, Robert Conrad and Martin Mull.
The band describes the release as “a regaling tale of the pursuit of one ‘Turbo Man’ doll.” ‘Jingle All the Way’ will be available digitally and on limited seven-inch vinyl.
In 2008, Austrian Death Machine released the single ‘A Very Brutal Christmas,’ which featured ‘Jingle Bells,’ ‘Get to the Choppa’ and a cover of Judas Priest’s ‘Hell Bent for Leather.’ Hours of heartfelt devotion to Schwarzenegger’s acting career and still no songs about ‘Conan the Barbarian’ or ‘Twins.’ What gives?
