Max Chops was written by South African composer, Mark Allnutt, with the intention of bringing together some of Mark’s favourite Metal musicians from Cape Town, and having them perform to songs he’d written.
Combining Marks love of Heavy Metal with his background in Orchestral training, Max Chops is an exploration into the Symphonic side of Heavy Metal.
Max is a hominin from Pyjama Planet. The perpetual night-time glow propelled the remaining survivors of the solar meltdown into wearing the most comfortable, appropriate clothing: pyjamas.
Max is a robust, relatively intelligent, gentle and calm being. Despite his athletic physique and chiseled bone structure, he has but one flaw; he’s allergic to sheep skin. Forced to wear sandals and forgo the comfort of slippers, Max has an advantage over everyone else; relatively better feet dexterity.
This added speed and power makes his journey a tumultuous, yet wildly adventurous one.
In a distant quadrant of the known universe, a solar system lost its sun, and the radiation that spilled from its destruction infused its orbiting planets with perpetual, brilliant phosphorescence.
Deep at the centre of this broken system of still-orbiting worlds spins Pyjama Planet. It is a beautiful world of strange, glowing creatures, iridescent flora, and a scattering of resilient, radiant, pyjama-clad hominins.
Drifting amidst a sky of perpetual night, this world of myriad light has found a new way to exist, a planet with no star that has discovered infinite ways to shine.
