Compressorhead, the all-robot cover band, gives new meaning to the term “heavy metal.”The group consists of three robots playing drums, guitar and base. Compressorhead has performed heavy metal classics such as AC/DC’s “TNT” and Pantera’s “Becoming.”

This week, a new video surfaced on YouTube of the band performing “Ace of Spades” by Motorhead, which has since been viewed more than half a million times.

Sure, the band is a little rough around the edges. For starters, there’s no singer to capture the grit of Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister, and the robot playing bass — his name is Bones — could show a little more enthusiasm.

Stickboy the drummer, however, is clearly the star of the show with four “arms” that puts any flesh-and-blood drummer to shame. Not far behind is Fingers, the aptly named guitarist, with 78 “fingers,” some mean boots and a whole lot of swagger.

This is one act that would be tough for anyone to follow — even the real Motorhead.
