It was the Year of Our Lord 2013, and I was devouring a cheeseburger in a Chatsworth, CA franchise of a certain multinational fast food conglomerate which shall remain nameless. A crazed skull face painted, dirt-bag, clown sat down beside me. This Skeletor reject of Uriah Heap introduced himself as Ronald Osborne and was familiar with my work. I was informed that Ronald, Slayer Mac Cheeze, Grimalice, and the Cat Burglar, were performing secret rock shows in the bunker-like basements of the local restaurants. But the time had come, he said, to bring drive-thru metal up from the “underground,” and he asked if I would consider becoming the manager. BAM! Abruptly we were thrown to the sidewalk. (Apparently the daytime manager was not informed of this activity) I looked over at Ronald, watched him brush off the sodium chloride and GMO remnants of my UN happy meal.
Before I knew it, I was in a burger stand bomb shelter, witnessing Black Sabbath music, hilarious fast food lyrics, smoldering clown heads with laser eyes, a giant purple gumdrop bass player, and Tony Iommi with a giant cheeseburger head. I was confused, amazed and can’t ever remember feeling so………happy!
Not all that long ago in a galaxy not all that far away... A band the likes of which the universe had never seen was formed for one purpose —to create an unstoppable musical “force” known as GALACTIC EMPIRE.
By reinterpreting classic selections from legendary composer JOHN WILLIAMS’ iconic scores from the STAR WARS SAGA into guitar driven heavy metal, GALACTIC EMPIRE has created a musical juggernaut feared in many systems.
Comprised of some of the most infamous and feared villains in the galaxy — lead guitarist Dark Vader, drummer Boba Sett, guitarists Red Guard and Shadow Ranger, and bassist Bass Commander — GALACTIC EMPIRE’s commitment to their mission is unparalleled.
From a foreboding rendition of ‘The Imperial March’ to the sweeping guitars of ‘Duel of the Fates’, the band’s faithful translations of WILLIAMS’ classic scores has created a new “force” where fandom and music overlap.
