Another of the MAGFest regulars, and one of the most celebrated at the show, this band has been doing nothing but Metroid for the better part of a decade. And in what style, you ask? Metal, of course. Hardcore, polyrhythmic, math-heavy, no-vocals metal. These arrangements are a music theory lover’s wet dream.
The band is sort of a super-group at this point, as most of its members have their own thing going on. The band’s founder, “Stemage” (Grant Henry), has his own side projects going. The lead guitarist, “Danimal Cannon,” will be playing as part of Armcannon and doing his own chiptune show as well.
I love seeing these guys perform. They’re a personal favorite every single year. The big question: will they have any new material, or will it be a selection of classics? We’ll find out on Thursday night, January 3.
