Compressorhead Streaming Robotic Version Of "Ace Of Spades"

Compressorhead, the world's first all 'heavy metal' band made with robotics, has posted a practice version of its cover of "Ace of Spades" during band practice at the Robocross headquarters in Berlin. In the band's biography, this is how they are described:

"Did you ever wonder what Danny Carey would sound like if he had 4 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 worlds heaviest metal band."

"Stickboy (drums) was created to exacting specifications. 4 arms, 2 legs, 1 head, no brain. He plays a Pearl 14 piece kit with double kick. Stickboy Junior, the bastard child of an unknown mother, takes control of the hihat shuffle. Inception date 2007. Fingers (guitar) joined Stickboy in 2009 and brings 78 purpose built fingers, enough to play the entire fret board and pluck. Bones (bass) is the highest precision bass player in known existence, and the youngest member of the band. Inception date 2012. Stand aside meatbags. Oil is thicker than blood."

Haha, that is so cool. I've seen the robot drummers before but not a full band. I love how the guitar-playing robot moves around a lot but the bass robot just stands in place and nods.

Welcome to the future, people. Someday we'll all pile down to the local bar to see Robot (or maybe even Cyborg) Metallica in all their glory.
