Droids AttackSunday, November 16th, 2014
Blazing guitar riffs, thick low end, and highly imaginative rhythmic structures make up the foundation of this stoner rock outfit from Madison, WI. Brandishing a full bodied tone and a taut signature style that slices through the sterile ceiling fan churn of our modern day Line 6 heroes like a kershaw through the warm neck flesh of a thousand infidels, the Droid’s approach suggests a more natural progression between Black Sabbath and Tool, and their throw down approach to the stage has consistently lead the most scowling of metal heads to the front row beaming with delight. It is fun to have your ass kicked this good.
The band has risen to much acclaim throughout their Midwestern stomping grounds earning cult status in the underground metal scene for their most recent release, Must Destroy, which edged it’s way to number 34 on FMQB’s national metal charts and earned high praises from the “all that is heavy” aficionados at stonerrock.com. The band has landed many choice opening spots for national acts over the years (such as Torche, High On Fire, Valient Thorr, Kylesa, Doug Stanhope, Priestess, Nashville Pussy, and Dead Meadow among others), have been featured in the platinum hit Xbox 360 game “Prey”, and have been selected to perform showcase spots on some of the industry’s most coveted gigs including SXSW and NXNE.
