OZZY OSBOURNE “PERFORMED” IN THE METAVERSE AND IT WAS COMICALLY HORRIBLE

They say to never meet your heroes. Maybe the 2022 version is “never see your heroes perform live in the metaverse.”

As part of the barren metaverse project Decentraland’s initiative to get more than a handful of people to engage with its Ethereum-powered world, it’s been drumming up its “Metaverse Music Festival” this week with headlining acts like Dillon Francis and Soulja Boy.

The VR festival also tried to recreate the very real metal festival Ozzfest with its official blessing, “featuring” iconic acts like Megadeth, Motörhead, and the eponymous Ozzy Osbourne.

But not even Ozzy could save this veritable shitshow. Did attendees get awesome, overwhelming visuals like in Travis Scott’s wildly successful Fortnite concert? Far from it.

 

At best, we should stress, concert-goers of the “Metalverse” got to feast their eyes on embarrassingly chintzy avatars of their musical heroes stiffly performing the same animation loop over and over. None of it was even timed to the music.

You can see the disaster for yourself in these videos spotted by MetalSucks, who rightly observes that the whole thing looks like a worse version of a Guitar Hero game from 2005.
