What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

Heavy Metal

it's time to play the music

It’s Possible to Make the Pacific Rim Theme Even More Metal. Here’s How. [VIDEO]

Eric Calderone, whose heavy metal covers of the Sherlock and Jurassic Park themes we previously posted because we love you and we want you to have nice things, has turned his electric guitar to Ramin Djawadi‘s Pacific Rim theme. But Rebecca, I can hear you thinking. The Pacific Rim soundtrack is already, to use the lingo of the hip and cool, über rockin’. How can it be made even more metal?

Watch and learn, poppets. Watch and learn.

And All Was Right With the World

Congratulations, You Made It Through Monday. Have a Heavy Metal Cover of the Sherlock Theme. [VIDEO]

Here’s Eric Calderone, the same guy who did metal covers of the themes from Jurassic Park, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and many more, lending his guitaric (shut up, it’s a word if I say it is) talents to the theme from BBC’s Sherlock.

Marry Me, Man Who Plays The Jurassic Park Theme On Electric Guitar

Guitarist Eric Calderone, you have taken be back to high school, the days when I was in love when ALL THE BAND MEMBERS. Thank you for that. But also, thank you for giving me Jurassic Park feels. Those are always welcome. Now if you’ll all excuse me, I’m going to go picture a Brontosaurus headbanging.

We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty

Okay, New Looney Tunes, You Get This One: Daffy Duck is a Lazy, Metal Wizard

Okay, okay. You got me, The Looney Tunes Show, this segment from you is unequivocally awesome. A meditation on the magical powers of modern technological life that we simultaneously take for granted and secretly want mountains of recognition for, scored in the kind of metal style that inspires concept albums about the Silmarillion and drawn like the side of a twenty year old van.

Also with Daffy Duck.

Star Wars, For the Metal Head In You

Who is this guy? What is his story? What made him decide to do something so thoroughly satisfying to our geeky minds? Apparently his name is Eric Calderone, and he is mildly famous on the internet for mashing up pop songs on his metal guitar. This time, he tackled Star Wars. I think I sense the force in this one.
