Description

High-concept cover bands succeed when they breathe new life into something old and familiar. Dread Zeppelin started doing it in the 1990s, with its Elvis impersonator meets reggae band take on Led Zeppelin's catalog. Today Mac Sabbath takes the form to its most bizarre extreme: exploring the proto-doom and heavy metal of Black Sabbath while dressed as mutant (and unauthorized) characters from the marketing world of McDonald's. The result is, in a word, sacrilegious. It's also hysterically funny. But what's most important is that it works. The band's fast food-themed parody lyrics somehow fit well onto the classic sludge of Ozzy and his pals.
