As he has become one of the most talked-about people worldwide, especially for his futuristic ideas and works. So, while he has been gathering so much attention, it’s not arguable that his personal life also pulls the attention of everyone, whether they like him or not. And with one of his tweets, he made it pretty clear that he is actually into heavy metal music when he shared a metal music band of Finland, which also won the Eurovision Song Contest, back in 2006.

And as the famous engineer, Elon Musk has been working on his futuristic projects, a handful of musicians showed the courage to take Musk’s idealistic plans into metal music form, supporting his ideas and plans with their music.

Formed in 2016, Raptor Command described its self as a “heavy metal tribute to Elon Musk,” debuting with a single, titled Elon: Champion for Humanity. The band’s main goal is to raise awareness of and promote Elon Musk’s futurist ideas and visions for the future of humanity, by using the power of heavy metal music and subculture. Consisting of Jericho Law on the bass, Sean Elg on drums, Deakon Lekross on the guitar, Max Carlisle on the guitar and keyboard, and Ty Christian on vocals, Raptor Command’s members share a mutual passion for technological developments, as Elon Musk has been trying to push mankind into the idealistic future with no stop, according to them.

After debuting with a single, Raptor Command released its first debut album, Elon via Kickstarter, as well. The songs of the tribute band of Elon Musk mostly mention the idea of Musk flying a Falcon 9 rocket to Mars, along with the real desire of Musk to see humanity become a multi-planetary species.

The lead vocalist of the tribute heavy metal band for Elon Musk also explained their first single in the past, saying,

“Much like the Tesla batteries, this music continuously builds energy as if it were magically pulled from the ether. Faster than a Model S, and more explosive than a SpaceX rocket – this metal is truly something that will launch us into the future!”

And also the keyboardist of Raptor Command talked about their band and said,

“I think of the band as a philanthropic endeavor. All of Elon’s ideas… sustainable sugar test energy, space exploration, improving transport… the world will be better off if more and more people embrace and support these ideas. We want to help achieve that through the power of metal.”

Raptor Command is also known for its power metal style, which was influenced by the bands such as Gamma Ray, Hammerfall, Iron Savior, Stratovarius, Gloryhammer and Blind Guardian. As the tribute metal band contains blistering guitar solos along with mind bending keyboard sequences. It can also be said that their stratospheric vocals and drums give a different kind of taste, showing off the progressive and disruptive technological and mental strides of Elon Musk, somehow.

On the other side, even though the band is still active, it only released one album so far, throughout its career. But still, it may be good to know that somehow, going to Mars is not just in our dreams now, but also is in some songs, along with some of our dreams. Ultimately, there is still time for both, also for the dreams of Elon Musk to move in Mars, or for the rest of his tribute band’s supporting songs for his ideas, as well.
