Danimal Cannon: Lunaria
Eight-bit tech-metal mayhem – furious joystick-waggling ensues
Sometimes it’s easy to wonder just how far the quest for pushing metal into the future will have to go.
And although there are loads of bands twisting, refiguring and melding our genre in new and exciting ways, there are also those who think that wacky gimmicks and late-night ideas dreamed up by drunken, stoned, giggling musicians can be passed off as visionary artistic statements. Danimal Cannon is a one-man electro-tech-metal mash-up fed and processed through an eight-bit Gameboy, and has, quite astonishingly, managed to shift over 10,000 copies despite being wilfully untraditional and jarringly retro at the same time.
