DROID: Orangevale Footage Posted Online
Capital Chaos has posted video footage (see below) of DROID's August 6, 2008 performance at The Boardwalk in Orangevale, California. Also on the bill were OTEP, ANEW REVOLUTION, UNDYING SILENCE and CLAUDIA'S ASHES.
DROID's debut album was released last year on Emotional Syphon Recordings, James "Munky" Shaffer of KORN's new record label.
The Long Beach quintet, consisting of vocalist James "Buddy" Eason, guitarists Bruce Child and Jamie Teissere, and drummer Nick McWells, blends the syncopated, bludgeoning rhythm and riff assault of LAMB OF GOD with guttural HATEBREED-style screams for a volatile blend of metal. "We're aiming for a groove," Eason told Ruin magazine. "I'm a fan of real shred masters, but also bands with more of a groove like MASTODON. We're trying to fit our own little groove in there and stand out without having to copy everybody else. You don't really have to shred to be metal these days. You can shred with a groove too, and that's what we're going for."
