It’s undoubtedly the wave of the future – a fully functioning robot band!
The German-based Compressorhead, which is made of up guitarist Fingers, bassist Bones, and 4-armed drummer Stickboy along with his hi-hat shuffling offspring Stickboy Junior, are making their debut as a ‘metal’ band this month at Australia’s Big Day Out 2013 festival. In preparation for their big gig, the self-proclaimed “World’s Heaviest Metal Band” was back home practicing Motorhead’s “Ace Of Spades,” one of the many covers they’ll performed during their set.
Check out the video here below to witness these metallic headbangers play “Ace Of Spades.”
According to the band’s Facebook page, their 15-song setlist will consist of such popular covers as Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” and “Rock and Roll,” The Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop,” and Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man.” (Full setlist is below.)
Here’s the band’s official description:
“Did you ever wonder what Danny Carey would sound like if he had four arms?
“How about if Angus Young had 78 fingers? Imagine what Robert Trujillo would sound like if he was actually made of metal?
“Well, wonder no more, meatbags.
“COMPRESSORHEAD is the world’s heaviest metal band.
“Stickboy, Fingers and Bones are guaranteed to shake and rattle the world of meatbag music.
While Fingers and Bones look cool just holding their instruments, their showmanship isn’t as impressive as wildman Stickboy, who headbangs while pounding the drums with his four arms and two legs. Stickboy made his solo performance debut at Big Day Out 2008 and was reportedly a huge hit!
Here’s Compressorhead’s official bio:
