“I’m the Sun! I’m insane!”
Funk Turkey is a pseudonym and stage name of Arkansas parody/comedy musician and producer Kirt Connor. The YouTuber recently used artificial intelligence to create a new “Metallica” song. See the results and read more about how he created “Deliverance Rides” below.
“Using lyrics.rip to scrape the Genius Lyrics Database, I made a Markov Chain write Metallica lyrics. This is the end result- ‘Deliverance Rides’,” Funk Turkey explains. “All music/vocals performed, mixed, and mastered by me, in my kitchen, on a couple of cheap guitars, a crappy mic, and an old copy of ProTools. All lyrics provided by the ROBOTS THAT WANT TO RULE US ALL (AKA lyrics.rip). I tried to get a sound somewhere between the Master of Puppets album and the Black album. Lars’ drum sound is quite hard to get right without spending a lot of money (or, in some cases, buying a trash can). Guitars are multitracked a LOT. Once again, extra special thanks to the geniuses behind lyrics.rip – @thesephist and @jajoosam.”
