MAC SABBATH has revealed details on their first book, Drive-Thru Metal, but don’t expect a stereotypical biography from the fast food-themed parody kings. There’s plenty of “juice” inside, albeit in the form of burgers cooking in the kitchen as the four members of MAC SABBATH take fans on a journey through a dystopian fast-food world polluted by its own waste in an innovative hybrid pop-up book.
Mysterious MAC SABBATH front-man Ronald Osbourne comments on the book, “What’s that? A pop-up book is not what you were expecting? Well SUFFER! …and you’re welcome.”
