Demented McDonald’s Metal Act ‘Mac Sabbath’ Jam Black Sabbath Fast Food Parodies

by Graham ‘Gruhamed’ Hartmann            December 23, 2014 Yesterday, we shared a video of Zakk Wylde teaming up with Ozzy Osbourne bassist Blasko and the Cult drummer John Tempesta to perform a full set of Black Sabbath songs under the name ‘Zakk Sabbath.’ The gig at West Hollywood’s iconic Roxy Theater was a sight to be seen, but this extremely bizarre Sabbath-based band takes it to the next level. Meet Mac Sabbath, a band comprised of demented McDonald’s characters re-imagining the immortal tunes of Black Sabbath. Instead of ‘Paranoid,’ they’ve got ‘Pair-a-buns.’ Instead of ‘Iron Man,’ Mac Sabbath have ‘Frying Pan’… you get the picture. Mac Sabbath’s fast food lyrics are pretty funny at times, but the band’s hilarity lies more in presentation. Led by seemingly coked-out clown Ronald Osbourne, Mac Sabbath is flanked by warped McDonald’s creatures. On guitar, Mayor McCheese shreds through Tony Iommi‘s monster riffs and bluesy solos while sporting tusks reminiscent of Motorhead mascot Snaggletooth. The Hamburglar fills in for the mighty Bill Ward on drums while our favorite, a skullet-sporting Grimace with a case of lazy tongue, jams Geezer Butler‘s bass lines. Check out the odd act perform ‘Pair-a-buns’ and ‘Frying Pan’ in the clips above and below, respectively. Via Loudwire Complete Albums Box...

Incubus Plotting Two New EPs for 2015

by Chad Childers                        December 18, 2014   Earlier this year, Incubus teased that they had returned to the studio and now it appears that they’re closing in on their next release… or should we say releases. According to Billboard, the band has just inked a new record deal and they’re planning to issue two new EPs in 2015. Guitarist Mike Einziger told the site, “We’re planning on releasing two installments that will total an album — two EPs. We’re hoping to put out the first one in February or March, then the summer.” Fans who caught the band this past weekend at KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas show caught the first new song, ‘Trust Fall,’ from Incubus’ upcoming works. Einziger says, “It’s pretty indicative of where we are now. It’s pretty ambitious.” The guitarist added that Incubus have a diverse collection of material, telling Billboard, “Most of the music we’ve written is high energy. But we’ve written our slowest song, but also our heaviest song.” The latter track he’s referring to is called ‘Make Out Party.’ Another song title revealed during the chat is ‘Dance Like You’re Dumb,’ a cut that Einziger described as “our version of a loud aggressive rock song. It’s definitely not what someone would expect from us.” The group just inked a deal with Island Records, who will release the two EPs. Source: Loudwire   Make...

Bloody Mary’s With Broken Mouth Annie

Broken Mouth Annie began as a three-piece in early 2011. Morris began playing out with Howland and Scruggs, just as their previous band was ending. At that time, Scruggs played a small percussion kit with his feet while strumming bass simultaneously, and the other two sang and played guitar, assuming they’d have a unique Americana sound to the outfit.
