Veterans of the MAGfest stage, progressive metal geeks Armcannon make a return to form this coming MAG 11 to grace the stage with their usual brand of gaming and pop-culture music with their distinctive flare.
Hailing from Buffalo, NY, the boys from Armcannon have been performing since MAGfest 5 in one capacity or another and each time deliver a combination of old favorite tunes along with fresh, new imported mixes from video games and pop culture alike. Featuring the dual-shredding guitar power of Dan “Danimal Cannon” Berans and Mike Willard, the keyboard stylings of Chris Dlugosz, power-drumming of Larry Steele and heavy bass of Ian Machniak, Armcannon covers a wide spectrum of familiar tunes ranging from songs from Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse and MegaMan 2 all the way through Power Rangers and ThunderCats themes. Nothing is safe from these metal maestros. (And Mike Willard has a, in the words of Nathan Explosion, “Totally Metal Voice”)
Performing on the main stage on Friday night at 9:20pm before Video Game Orchestra, Armcannon might even feature a few new tracks from their upcoming new album release, Armcannon III: Leg Vacuum 2, so be sure to stop by and rock out with your cannon out.Tags: ARMCANNON, Buffalo, Danimal Cannon, Game Music, Geek Music, Know Your MAG, Progressive Metal
