And Now For Something Completely Different: Drone Metal



I came across this video today, which is either performance art, some sort of comedy, or an unknown outtake from George Lucas’ abandoned project “Return of the Jawas”. From the description: “Highlight is that MALEFIC enters the Stage in a wheelchair, in excellent quality”, and indeed, that you don’t want to miss, it’s about three minutes into the clip. In case you’re wondering, this kind of stuff is called Drone Metal, or actually Drone Doom, and it’s “a subgenre of doom metal”: “Melody, and sometimes any sense of rhythm, are absent from the songs, and vocals, if present, are usually screamed.” I would have called it “Droll Metal”, but then that’s just me.
