Taken at Emerald City Comic Con 2012 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. Not only can they never hit a target, but you cant understand a word they’re saying.

Weekend Remix: May The Force Rock You
Song: The Imperial March
Based On: The Imperial March from Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back
Original Composer: John Williams
On an internet social site not so far away, a Population GO segment dubbed the “Weekend Remix” made its return. With a holiday weekend on the horizon, the segment decided to travel light years away to headbang with the dark side of the force.
Get your lightsabers ready folks, as this week’s offering is Symphonic Metallers Epica’s take on The Imperial March.
While technically, Epica’s take on the Imperial March is a live cover of a song I hope to have played at my future wedding and divorce (no way she’s getting the Han Solo mug), isn’t a remix really a reinterpreted cover?
Besides, have you listened to that double bass drum pedal?
This is one of those reinterpretations that doesn’t deviate too far from the original composition, but instead places it in a sweet metal shell. Epica made excellent use of the 40 piece orchestra that performed with them for this gig at Miskloc, Hungary, providing the same awesome chills you got as a kid whenever Vader made his big bad entrance on screen. But with the band added to the mix, it just gives the song a type of evil urgency.
Besides, I can’t be the only one who is getting images of Darth Vader throwing up the horns and headbanging himself into a stupor. Or crowd surfing Storm Troopers amping themselves up for a full scale attack on the Rebel scum on Hoth.
Epica has, of course, accomplished much more than doing a really awesome cover. They have four successful studio albums under their belt, including the 2009 release, Design You Universe. You can check out the band’s official website here. If you’re in the mood for some progressive, gothic tinged metal with operatic female vocals, they come highly recommended.
Until Next Weekend…GO Party!

A great work of art done by the great artist Drew Struzan.
To own this would be part of a living dream.
I’d shoot first to get this.
(I do realize how incredibly lame that was. Thank you)
