70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

McDonalds Themed Black Sabbath Cover Band Mac Sabbath Hitting The Road

Loosen that belt and bring your love for extra cheese – Mac Sabbath is coming to feed your need for heavy metal. Named by Buzzfeed as one of the “13 Metal Bands You Didn’t Know How to React To”, Mac Sabbath will McStake that claim in 14 remaining cities on the way to Los Angeles, CA for a special Halloween tour closer show.

Mixing raucous comedy with borderline-horrific theatrics, the only thing more petrifying than impending health problems resulting from years of overeating is a Mac Sabbath show. Set wise, this ain’t no value meal – innocent bystanders can enjoy 10 fantastically alarming Sabbath-turned-junk food themed tunes on this tour:

More Ribs
Chicken For The Slaves
Sweet Beef
Brand of Doom
Lord of the Swirled
Zippin Up the Uniform
Frying Pan
Cherries Are Fruits

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!

"I agreed to manage his band. It wasn’t going to be easy—nothing ever is with a disturbed clown and a band of Monsanto mutants who refuse to reveal their identities because they think they came here from a wormhole in space-time direct from 1970. So pull up to the window and check your order, because I am proud to present the world’s newest concept in entertainment, the culinary disgrace that is MAC SABBATH!"

Why stop at Mac Sabbath? We could have iPeth - an Opeth cover band that only sings about Apple productions, or maybe Broken Soap - a Broken Hope cover band with songs all about toiletries. The possibilities are endless!

Some of my friends saw them play in Austin a few days ago. One friend wasn't impressed, saying the gimmick wore out after a couple of songs.
