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” and “Nirvana” songs, which we recently shared here on Dread Central. If you missed them, check it out “Deliverance Rides” and “Smother” by following the links below.
Funk Turkey’s latest A.I.-scribed ditty is in the style of Iron Maiden. “Power Gravy” is really… something! Give it a spin below!
Using lyrics.rip to scrape the Genius Lyrics Database, I made a Markov Chain write Iron Maiden lyrics. This is the end result- “Power Gravy”.
All music/vocals performed, mixed, and mastered by me, in my kitchen, on a white Epiphone Flying V, a crappy mic, and an old copy of ProTools. All lyrics provided by Eddie (AKA lyrics.rip).
Guitars are the aforementioned Epiphone bounced partially left and right. Bass is a no-name bass run through amp emulation. Percussion is Superior Drummer 2. Vocals are…. hard. Bruce Dickinson is very hard to emulate/impersonate, so I just did the best I could and hope it’s not awful. That man has golden pipes. It sounds like a South Park parody, but then again, it IS a parody, so… uhhhh… don’t take it too seriously.
