Heavy Metal & Star Wars

August 2, 2014

To those who know me well, this post is long overdue.  After all, I host a heavy metal class every January and a Star Wars marathon every May.  While the article itself isn't well written, it does attempt to syntheize my too favorite things: metal and Star Wars.

It's actually an excerpt from "Heavy Metal Movies," and feels rather "forced" (groans understandable) to me. While Obi-wan is most certainly prog metal, Chewbacca isn't stoner metal.  All he does is growl.  He's the original gutteral vocalist (apologies to John Entwistle).  But I digress.

So, let's just leave it at the Death Star is the most metal thing (literally and figuratively) ever created.
