The Best And Worst Of Heavy Metal In 2016

We're at the end of the year already somehow? It was a big one for me personally as my head banging, bouncer moshing son arrived in May ready to throw the horns straight out of the womb!

There was a whole lot going on in the metal world as well to mark the year of his birth, with about equal parts good, bad, and utterly bizarre.

With the notable exception of one long-dormant mega band whose name is on everyone's lips, it seems like the reunion / reboot craze has finally come to a rest, for now anyway, and we can once again forget about all those broken up '80s and '90s groups seeking another day in the spotlight.

That paved the way for both a crop of new bands (and there were some awesome newcomers this year!) and long-running groups who never called it quits to show us what they could do throughout 2016.

The Good: Metal Highlights of 2016

It was back in 2015 that we started asking why there wasn't more heavy metal invading the world of PC and console gaming, and this year we actually saw some new additions. The top-down bullet hell wonder of "Metal Tales: Fury Of The Guitar Gods" just arrived last month, while the rhythm game / RPG "Metronomicon" landed at the end of September.

The beginning of the year was also marked by the very metaltastic "Slain," drawing heavily from early Castlevania, and while it had an incredibly rocky launch, reviews are steadily getting more positive as patches are released.

On the music front, this was unquestionably the year of thrash!

New albums arrived from Megadeth, Anthrax, Testament, and even the long-awaited return of the band everyone loves to hate, Metallica (although as our reader poll and CROMCarl's review show, there's clearly still some fans out there in the metal underground). More...

Mac Sabbath Announces "Clown Power" Tour

The kings of "extra cheesy" metal covers from Mac Sabbath are back this September to slay you with their fast food-themed renditions of Black Sabbath anthems.

Dubbed the "Clown Power Tour" 2016, Mac Sabbath will be joined by equally mesmerizing one-man, painted Elvis Presley project Clownvis Presley, originally discovered on Season 5 of America's Got Talent.

Blissfully unaware of his own tour package, Ronald Osbourne unnervingly offered, "The clown Elvis bloke? Yes I know him, we clown folk stick together, he's a magical mate with a show like nothing I've....What the bloody hell? On our tour??? You got to be kidding me! Who does he think he is! But you realize I'm the clown ozzzzzzz--"

"... Sorry, I think what Ronald is trying to say here is that Mac Sabbath will be joining forces with Clownvis Presley for a magical fun-tastic experience this summer on the Clown Power Tour 2016," interjected manager Mike Odd, laughing nervously as he tightened Osbourne's straightjacket.

The "Clown Power Tour" 2016 begins on August 25th in Las Vegas, NV and will run for about a month, ending in Tucson, AZ on September 17th. The band will perform a one-off show in Los Angeles on August 5th. See below for a full listing of Mac Sabbath tour dates. More...

Manager Mike Odd comments on how the band came together: "It was the Year of Our Lord 2013, and I was devouring a cheeseburger in a Chatsworth, CA franchise of a certain multinational fast food conglomerate, which shall remain nameless. A crazed skull face painted, dirt-bag, clown sat down beside me. This Skeletor reject of Uriah Heap introduced himself as Ronald Osborne and was familiar with my work. I was informed that Ronald, Slayer Mac Cheeze, Grimalice, and the Cat Burglar, were performing secret rock shows in the bunker-like basements of the local restaurants.

"But the time had come, he said, to bring drive-thru metal up from the 'underground,' and he asked if I would consider becoming the manager. BAM! Abruptly we were thrown to the sidewalk (apparently the daytime manager was not informed of this activity). I looked over at Ronald, watched him brush off the sodium chloride and GMO remnants of my UN happy meal.

"Before I knew it, I was in a burger stand bomb shelter, witnessing Black Sabbath music, hilarious fast food lyrics, smoldering clown heads with laser eyes, a giant purple gumdrop bass player, and Tony Iommi with a giant cheeseburger head. I was confused, amazed and can’t ever remember feeling so… happy! More...
