Okay, maybe you came here with the idea that we will just hate some random bands or laugh about them, but we want to just show you what’s possible in the land of entertainment. So, hold on and enjoy our list of 5 Weird Bands or concerts to go to.
We all know that bands can pull off some strange stunts in order to spice up their shows and make things interesting for their audience. Gotta make them benjamins from the ticket sales, right?
Okay, so here we go…
Is an American heavy metal band formed in Richmond, Virginia in 1984, composed of and operated by a frequently rotating line-up of musicians, artists and filmmakers collectively known as Slave Pit Inc.
The band’s characteristic costumes are generally made of foam latex, polystyrene foam, and hardened rubber. The costumes cover very little of the band members’ bodies; the bare parts are accentuated with makeup.
Another trademark of Gwar’s live show is its mutilations of celebrities and figures in current events. Victims have included O. J. Simpson, John Kerry, Mike Tyson, every American President since Ronald Reagan, Jerry Garcia, Pope John Paul II, Osama Bin Laden, Michael Jackson, Al Gore, John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Paris Hilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Adolf Hitler, Lady Gaga, Marilyn Manson, Jerry Springer, Mr. Lordi, Sarah Palin, Snooki, Mitt Romney, Pope Francis, Justin Bieber, Tony Abbott, Donald Trump and many others.
2. Steel Panther
Steel Panther is an American glam metal band from Los Angeles, California, mostly known for their profane and humorous lyrics, as well as their exaggerated on-stage personae that reenact the stereotypical “glam metal” lifestyle.
They re-enact how the 80’s were like even with the latex and hair spray. Still, they’re not just historical re-enactors singing about women and drugs. Their songs are really awesome and funny to listen to. What’s more, Steel Panther’s on-stage persona extends to off-stage as well.
We all heard about black metal and Death Metal but I think they are a bit too extreme. They are an Austrian extreme metal band from Salzburg. They originally formed in 1991 under the name Betrayer before changing their name in 1993. They are named after the demon Belphegor, and we all can see why.
Belphegor did not have a pleasant stay in Russia. While on tour with Nile, the band was confronted by Christian extremist zealots in the airport last week, one of whom spat in frontman Helmuth’s face.
The band has had troubles in Russia all week, and as a result, have decided the best course of action is to just pull the plug.
The first robots (Stickboy, Junior, Fingers and Bones) were built between 2007 and 2012 and their first live performance was held at the 2013 Big Day Out festival in Australia. The band started out playing covers of bands such as Motörhead, AC/DC, Pantera and the Ramones, with videos of the band becoming popular on the internet in 2013.
Compressorhead is a four-member group and recently started a Kickstarter campaign to raise enough money to build a vocalist. Sadly, funding fell well short.
Maybe this is the most surprising one, or maybe not, here we have an extreme metal band that committed to making the whole experience as real as it could be. They also added in an occasional pagan ritual, just to spice things up even further.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, the band would hand out a ‘golden condom’ to one lucky male fan every night. That allowed them backstage for… a night that the fan will not ever forget (if you know what we mean)!
