Compressorhead Is Out for a Debut, Covering “Ace of Spades” by Motorhead
Here is today’s trivia, what is the world’s heaviest metal band for now? If your answer is Metallica, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Lamb of God, Panthera, or Anthrax, than you’ve got it all wrong, dude! Those old timers don’t count. The world’s heaviest metal band today is labeled to a newcomer calling themselves, Compressorhead.
Compressor, what? Well, it’s pretty normal if you haven’t heard about them because the band is relatively new. They’ve been drawing attention from the world via YouTube and so far, their video has been watched more than 2 million times. The members consist of Stickboy (drummer), Fingers (guitarist), Bones (bassist), and an anonymous dwarfish man whose main role in the band is hitting the hi-hat pedal. All of them are robots made of real metallic components which obviously pack a whole lot more weight. Check them out covering Motorhead’s Ace of Spades!
For Stickboy, the four-armed drummer with Mohawk hair, it’s not the first appearance in front of public. He’s showed off his world class drumming skill before. However, it is the first time he comes up with a band. Right now, Compressorhead is on an outback Australian tour, banging the local metal heads ad geeks at the same time. I wonder how much gasoline the band will take up for a full day and night head-banging metal concert.
By the way, isn’t it odd to see that while Fingers with his 78 hydraulic-powered fingers attractively plays his guitar, Bones just stand still with no expression? Well, at least he looks more humane compared to MechBass.
