In metal, it’s always about what bands are heavier. Well how about a band that’s actually comprised of heavy metal, namely the robot band Compressorhead? We at TGD have been fascinated by the concept of a robot band that’s programmed to play metal classics, and they just played in New York as part of a General Electric celebration of “Brilliant Machines.”
Back in the eighties, when music was overloaded with synthesizers and drum machines, a lot of people were afraid that machines were going to take over.
There were certain common denominator bands we all listened to before any of us ever heard the term "The Big Four."
With the Big Four of metal, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax, all finally touring together, it's amazing to see how far things have come since these bands got started three decades ago.
