Mac Sabbath, the McDonald’s themed Black Sabbath tribute band, brought their twist of cover songs to the Westcott Theater in Syracuse, NY on Friday March 24. Mac Sabbath includes band members Ronald Osbourne (vocals), Slayer MacCheeze (guitar), Grimalice (bass), and the Catburglar on the drums. The band takes classic Black Sabbath hits and spins them into their own unique versions including ‘Sweet Beef” (“Sweet Leaf”), “Pair-a-Buns” (“Paranoid”) and “Frying Pan” (“Iron Man”).
Mac Sabbath takes the stage show one step further by donning wild costumes. The guitarist wears a massive cheeseburger mask with horns. The bassist sports a twisted looking grimace costume, the drummer sits behind his kit in stripes and cat makeup and the singer is the creepiest version of Ronald McDonald available.
Despite the theatrics, the band sounds great and Ronald Osbourne has an incredible stage presence. Check them out if they are making a stop nearby.
