Fast food-themed Black Sabbath parody kings Mac Sabbath are about to kick off another North American tour, beginning October 27 in Pomona, CA at Lagunitas Beer Circus! In celebration of the tour, the band have released their second recorded song, "Sweet Beef", along with a brand new, zany music video for the track. The music video features maniacal marionettes in the image of the band members themselves!

This video is so psychedelic, it will leave you with the munchies! Deranged vocalist Ronald Osbourne says: "Mac Sabbath 'meats' marionettes! There will be blood!"
The "Sweet Beef" video concept was created by Mac Sabbath, Michael Serwich and Matt Scott, with maroniettes managed by Matt Scott and Rasputin's Marionettes and editing and effects by Joe Seafus.

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. Show attendees should be prepared to partake in the fun - Mac Sabbath puts on a theatrical, multimedia stage show - complete with a smoking grill, laser-eyed clowns, bouncing burgers and many more magical surprises... basically anything and everything an unwary show-goer could ever want in their wildest dreams. Named by Buzzfeed as one of the "13 Metal Bands You Didn't Know How to React To" + Named as LA's "Best Tribute Band" by LA Weekly.
Without a shadow of a doubt, Eternal Halloween are one of the most exciting metal bands to emerge from the USA within the last 5 years, valiantly walking in the footsteps of the great GWAR, Eurovision winners Lordi and arguably America's answer to the UK's Evil Scarecrow.
Halloween is 24/7, 365 (366 if counting leap years) days a year for this amassed horde of pretty beasts, hailing from California they're certainly destined to become the real 'walking dead' along Sunset Boulevard.
Now this five-piece army dive into the dankest, deepest and hottest parts of hell to construct their third music video, now as their descent into hell was a dangerous one they ensured that they were completely "bulletproofed". Question is, are you? [WARNING:- this music is not for the faint of heart].
Having only been around a year or so, Eternal Halloween are ramping it up past 11 and onto 666, in fact 2017 will be the year the American Horror Metallers break ground in Europe.
Lashing together influences from the likes of Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson to Pantera and Rammstein, Eternal Halloween are a force to be reckoned with.
Eternal Halloween is:
Dave Devil: Vocals/Guitars
Rudolf Dionkeldei: Keyboards/Backing Vocals
Damien Schweinsteiger: Guitars/Backing Vocals
Katryna Draven: Bass
Markus Mortem: Drums
You can get Eternal Halloween's debut album through the following outlets:-

Tickets are now available from all usual online vendors:
This fabulous, fun band will be bringing their unique brand of metal, mayhem and madness to several shows across the UK and with their ever growing fan following, they can guarantee a wildly wonderful show that you’d be mad to miss. Bring party poppers, plastic blow up crabs & any other robot/wind/crustacean related things you can think of!
A quote from Dr Hell on the forthcoming shows:
“We’re back on the road for our ‘Rock you like a Hurricanado Tour’ (see what we did there). We’ll be bringing our biggest, silliest show yet along with some brand new, probably never heard before, music ‘genius’. I expect the entire tour to sell out immediately now that we are super famous massive rock stars, so I’ll be personally selling extra tickets on eBay like a dirty tout. Dust off your robot cardboard boxes and get ready to spin on the spot!"
