LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - NOVEMBER 26: Singer/guitarist James Hetfield of Metallica performs during a stop of the band's WorldWired Tour at T-Mobile Arena on November 26, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada; NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 17: Chris Caffery (C) of Trans-Siberian Orchestra performs onstage during an exclusive performance at The iHeartRadio Theater in New York at iHeartRadio Theater on November 17, 2014 in New York City.

When most think of Metallica, “holiday cheer” isn’t the first phrase that likely comes to mind, but add in some Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and then suddenly, everyone’s tune changes.  

That’s what YouTube’s DJ Cummerbund probably had in mind when he dropped a new mashup on us just in time for Christmas called “Time Marches On (For Carol The Bell Tolls),” which combines Metallica’s “From Whom The Bell Tolls” and TSO’s “Carol of the Bells.”

And because DJ Cummerbund is a wrestling enthusiast, the video also contains some gruesome clips from 2005’s Santa’s Slay, a holiday horror film starring WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg as an evil Santa.

Enjoy the very bizarre clip below, and just so there are no surprises, the video does contain some very NSFW imagery, so consider yourself warned.
