Meet Compressorhead, the heaviest heavy metal band on the planet. At a combined weight of nearly six tons and hailing all they way from Germany, members Stickboy, Fingers, and Bones crank out some the gnarliest hard rock music on Earth – and their unique anatomy is key to their phenomenal musical abilities. Stickboy, the band’s drummer, has four arms and two legs and plays a Pearl 14 piece kit. Fingers, the head-banging guitarist, has 78 fingers – enough to play the entire fret board and pluck at the same time. The bassist, Bones, is the youngest member of the band and believed to be the highest precision bass player in known existence. If you haven’t guessed yet, Compressorhead is composed of three special-purpose robotic musicians. And they can rip a song to shreds.
Compressorhead, who are sometimes accompanied by robotic go-go dancers, just completed a five-city Australian tour and are looking for more gigs. We’re hoping they schedule an American tour soon (unless of course, they add stage diving to their act in which case, we want no part of that).
