    I got the first album off iTunes last night after GG posted those YT vids on the music thread.

    It's pretty keen!

    At least it isn't nerdcore.

    As in I would probably go to a show of theirs.

    I think all but about 3 people at the show last night were complete strangers to this band, and probably never even got the Mega Man connection, and they all fucking loved them

    There was this old white-haired dude who threw up the horns at the end of the set

    I'm pretty sure after a few beers I'd be rocking out to this. Even this cold black metal heart needs to rock it out.

    I think it's a real challenge to follow their music if you didn't purchase albums in either the 80's or 90's.

    this is fun. I like it

    is the album any good?

    I dunno about their new album or whatever, but I really just recently started listening to them

    I only have their album The Broken String but I've been listening to it basically on repeat for the past few days because it's totally amazing
