Compressorhead - Compressorhead

Some bands are metal but only one is literally metal. Compressorhead are Fingers, Stickboy and Bones, a band of actual robots. They get guest vocalists in to do the tricky singing part, which in my book is a bit of a cop out. It must be possible to get a set of horns and some weirdly resonant sheet metal to handle that end of things, surely? The band are fuelled by compressed air anyway, imagine that tonne of metal used as the backing for some full scale intonarumori bruitism action. Until that crossover comes, here's what the band sound like when relying on a flesh-based singer for their signature theme. From the 2017 album Party Machine.
