In the future, all music will be death metal performed by robots

At least, that’s my takeaway from this story:

The robot band Compressorhead is a trio of hulking metallic machines designed to play real instruments. Stickboy, the four-armed, mohawked, headbanging drummer, who even has a mini-me on the hi-hat. The guitarist, Fingers, has 78 hydraulic fingers — wires stream out from the arms to trigger notes along the entire fretboard. Bones is on the bass.

“They have the poses of rock gods, those robots. The bass player’s definitely the most photogenic,” says Shar Try, who was up on the stage snapping shots of Compressorhead as they banged their heads and swished their hips.

The music video is also excellent. Between this and holographic 3D anime idols, what chance do us meatcreatures have?
