[dropcap]M[/dropcap]ove over, Kim Bendix Petersen — there’s a new King in town. Boston noise-pop quartet Infinity Girl have taken home Vanyaland’s first ever cover song contest, as their moody, shoegazing rendition of King Diamond’s “No Presents For Christmas” was the top-vote getter in a public online poll that ended today after two weeks of fast and furious action.

It was a very close vote, and in fact, there was a tie for second between Adam PC and Matthew Connor.

[list type=”minus”] [li]Adam PC – 24.2%[/li] [li]Matthew Connor – 24.2%[/li] [li]EXH4LER – 0.3%[/li] [li]Infinity Girl – 25.9%[/li] [li]Favores Explicitos – 5.2%[/li] [li]Ryan SeaQuest 1.4%[/li] [li]Vary Lumar – 6.7%[/li] [li]Butterscott – 12.1%[/li] [/list]

In addition to all the glory that comes from winning these types of things, Infinity Girl also receive $250 cash-money to stuff into their holiday stockings. And we here at Vanyaland will match that and donate an extra $250 to Girls Rock Campaign.

Check out the winning song here:

Thank you to all who voted, and extra thanks to all the bands who entered “Christmas With The King” — a list that also included Butterscott, EXH4LER, Favores Explicitos, Ryan SeaQuest, and Vary Lumar.

Y’all did the King proud.

Death to false Christmas.

Hail and coal.
