Dec. 26, 2021 - Dream Theater has dug into its archives for the holidays to give fans a Christmas classic featuring Kevin Moore.
The band has posted a 4:11 version of "O Holy Night," which features Moore on keyboards and was recorded in 1993. The cover song was uploaded to the band's YouTube channel and shared via its social media pages on Christmas Eve.
"The track was recorded during a soundcheck at the Roseland Theater in Portland, Oregon, on June 9, 1993, and was released three years later on a very rare fan club-only Christmas CD," according to Blabbermouth.net, which calls itself the CNN of heavy metal and hard rock news.
Last year, Dream Theater released a medley of holiday classics called "The Holiday Spirit Carries On." The proceeds of the song, which was made available via Bandcamp, went to support the band's road crew which was unable to work last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
