LOCAL VIDEO GAME ROCK BAND "ARMCANNON" TO PERFORM AT VIDEO GAMES LIVE IN BUFFALO
ArmCannon is an instrumental progressive blues-ish metal band that covers and liberally remixes the melodies of classic video game music, as well as themes from 80's TV and movies. Their setlists commonly include Mario, Zelda, MegaMan, Metroid and Final Fantasy.
They are comprised of a drummer, two lead guitarrists, bassist, and a keyboardist, with all five members having grown up with significantly different musical backgrounds. At every practice session they challenge themselves to step outside of their comfort zones in terms of technical skill and genre.
Based in Buffalo, NY, the entire region's music scene is aware of them, sheerly from playing venues up and down town, without advertisement or management. The prime demographic for ArmCannon shows tends to be the proud geeks of anime, video games, comic books, and especially the children of the 1980's. Consequently they often get invited to play at anime and comic book conventions throughout the nation.
In less than two years, they have become a key headliner at MAGfest [magfest.org], an annual Virginia based video game convention featuring one of the nation's most densely populated gatherings of video game bands. Built in only two years, with the reach of the Internet, ArmCannon's global legions are growing exponentially.
