Curious about the heavy sounds and lyrical joys of “drive-thru metal?” The curiosity ends here, as surging parody/tribute band, Mac Sabbath, takes the stage at northern New Jersey’s premier concert venue, the Wellmont Theater, on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 8 p.m. The group will unleash its underground parody metal sound in Montclair as it continues its 2019 “American Cheese Tour.”

True: There are those who admire Black Sabbath. There are others who appreciate American fast food – in all its greasy, salty glory. But never have the two been joined so closely. Cue Mac Sabbath, the YouTube-friendly parody band from Los Angeles.

The group consists of identifiable front-man Ronald Osbourne, along with Slayer MacCheeze, Grimalice and Catburglar. Backed by manager and spokesperson Mike Odd, also the lead singer of a visually inspired hard-rock band Rosemary’s Billygoat, Mac Sabbath continues to pioneer drive-thru metal, while both joining and admonishing fast food culture.

The group is known for tunes drawn from Black Sabbath hits, including “More Ribs,” “Pair-a-buns,” “Sweet Beef,” “Frying Pan” and more.

This “drive-thru metal” and Sabbath tribute band is said to have been born in a fast food restaurant in 2013 when lead singer Ronald Osbourne – in full clown getup – convinced soon-to-be manager Mike Odd to back the concept of fast food-fueled rock music. Odd was sold, the band flourished and, today, it continues to tour the nation behind both identifiable costumes and heavy guitar solos.

Osbourne and his bandmates will bring their eccentric, high-energy tunes to Montclair this August – in a performance sure to be colorfully loud, undeniably memorable and as potent as a fast-food overload. It’s a can’t-miss performance from these likable burger-rock artists!

Don’t miss the show on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 8 p.m. EST. The Wellmont Theater is located at 5 Seymour St., Montclair, NJ, 07042.
