Drive-Thru metal band Mac Sabbath is perhaps one of the strangest bands to ever exist. They come from the far away land of Birminghamburger, Englad (currently based in Los Angeles). Mac Sabbath perform the music of heavy metal godfathers Black Sabbath, but change the lyrics to match that of fast food products. Black Sabbath fans can easily determine the original Black Sabbath song names based on the Mac Sabbath titles. The curtains lifted and revealed on stage the members of Mac Sabbath which were Grimalice (bass), Slayer MacCheeze (guitar), The Catburglar (drums), and coming out last in a straitjacket, Ronald Osbourne (vocals). Mac Sabbath began their greasy performance with Organic Funeral (Electric Funeral) and right away you could feel the two themes coming together like the perfect burger. Mac Sabbath brought out plenty of toys to play with as Osbourne acted like a clown and really had tricks up his sleeve. One of his tricks involved eating a burger patty prior to the performance of Sweet Beef (Sweet Leaf) and vomiting inside of a bucket. He would pretend like he was going to chuck the vomit onto the audience and when he finally did, out came…confetti. Other tricks including spraying the audience with water from ketchup and mustard bottles, and party snakes coming out of bottles. At one point, Osbourne somehow took out a really long straw from his under garments and had his fast food employee chug a beer down one end of the straw as Osbourne drank from the other. Osbourne also had plenty of jokes to tell has he talked about touring with other bands including Dokken Donuts (Dokken), KFCDC (AC/DC), Twisted Sizzler (Twisted Sister), and of course, he had nothing nice to say about Burger King Diamond (King Diamond). Other songs performed on this outrages show were: Grilled My Pet (MotorheadKilled By Death), Love Buns (KISSLove Gun), The Lizard (The Wizard), GMO Blind (Snowblind), and Chicken For the Slaves (Children of the Grave). One of the weirder parts of the show was when Osbourne introduced his employee of the month and then grabbed a light and proceeded to lip sync to In Dreams (Roy Orbison) while seemingly serenading all the women up front. During the performance of Frying Pan, Osbourne brought out a frying pan and set it on fire as he prepared to cook his next meal. He brought out a bat and was going to recreate one of the most infamous incidents in metal as he put the bat between the burger buns and bit the head off. Mac Sabbath finished the show and left the stage. The audience wasn’t ready to go home yet and stayed behind. After a little while, Mac Sabbath came out to perform Pair-A-Buns (Paranoid). This is the song where Osbourne lays down on the crowd and proceeds to clown surf all around the audience. Mac Sabbath finished up their show with the traditional McDonald’s theme end by saying, “I’m Lovin’ It!”, bowed to the audience, then left the stage. Seeing Mac Sabbath, you won’t know what to feel. You’ll be enjoying yourself, but also asking yourself, what the heck am I watching!? Either way, they make for some fast food entertainment and should be seen by metalheads alike!


I mainly go to rock and metal concerts.
