Black Metal Friday: Galactic Empire ‘Star Wars’ Main Theme

As you all know, Black Metal Friday is our weekly celebration of the worship of “The Dark Side” in heavy metal music. Well, in honor of today’s long-awaited premiere of Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens, we here at Geeks of Doom present to you a video from the folks over at Galactic Empire. In the clip, we get to check out a metal rendition of John Williams’ iconic Star Wars theme performed not for the dark side but rather by the dark side.

That’s right kiddies, Darth Vader, a shadow guard, and an imperial guard on lead guitars; a run of the mill storm trooper on bass (hey, are they implying that bass players are non-descript?); everyone’s favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett on drums; and one very unlucky guitar tech. So take the advice of a very wise master: “Watch it below, you must… Enjoy it, you will.”

P.S. Anyone who puts spoilers for this film on the internet should be thrown into the Sarlac Pit. Also, am I the only one who thinks the video should have ended with that stormtrooper who asked to go to the bathroom just completely missing the urinal?

Oh and “may the force be with you.”
