I'm a BIG fan of these guys and also of the guy who produced their "Metal Kombat..." album.

My favourite song is probably their cover of Holy Orders from Guilty Gear

I've seen them live; they put on a great show. However, I wouldn't normally ever actually listen to their music (too gimmicky)

They put on a sweet show, I saw them when they came through town. Sure you can call them gimmicky, but metal is full of gimmicky bands. I'd probably say metal is one of if not the most gimmicky genre out there.

I've loved these guys for over a year now. Haven't listened to them as much lately, but I do love every song they've done.

They sound like good musicians.


Lol thats pretty much it.

Metal Kombat is awesome no doubt though.

i recently discovered that one of their guitarists (the one who plays some form of ESP/LTD dave mustaine sig?) plays a right hand guitar in the left handed position.

This includes have the strings backwards. Incredible stuff imo

I love Powerglove. I also saw them when they came to Orlando. I caught some of the Starbursts they threw out

I have my fingers crossed for a Chrono Trigger cover on their next album.

EDIT:
A Long Overdue Album Update: Recording Starts Soon!
And so it is, that after many months of arranging music and watching professional Starcraft, we've now ended up with about two releases worth of songs. We would probably hemorrhage with pure glory if we tried to just record them all at once, so we're going to split this batch into two albums.

The first one will be all of the tv, cartoon and movie themes that we grew up with, smelted into shimmering metal. The Pokemon theme song is on this one as some of you know, along with This is Halloween from The Nightmare before Christmas (one of several Danny Elfman songs we're doing on this one, a favorite composer for sure), The Flintstones, The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest (if you haven't heard that one look it up, it's awesome), and a song that for the moment I'm calling In the Hall of Inspector Gadget. Also, we have this psychotic arrangement of Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid with 220bpm shredding and steel drums that will make you pass out from laughing and headbanging at the same time. In the next few weeks we'll reveal some more about it as we get started with the recording. As to the amount of songs, I honestly don't know yet how many we want to put on this release. It could be an EP, it could be an album, only time will tell.

And the second one is back to video game music! We've got most of the core material done for that one as well, so we'll have plenty of time to kick it around and refine it. I'll save revealing those tracks for later, but I recently did an arrangement of Snake Man from Mega Man 3 that I can't wait to hear live, should it make the cut. I'd love to have the first one come out later this year, and the second one in 2010, but we'll see how that works out with touring etc.

We just got all of our new gear together and we'll be setting it up and getting our tones starting this weekend. Our drum and bass sounds are already way better than Metal Kombat, and Saturday the never ending quest for the perfect recorded guitar tone begins anew.

I can't really generalize on the sound for this album, but there are definitely more dark moments than Metal Kombat, and the gleeful moments of cheer are more intense and ecstatic. It is also heavier and shreddyer, but every band says that. So don't take our word for it now, you see when the time comes.

-Chris Marchiel and Powerglove

Yeah, I'm pretty sure there lead guitarist does, when I saw them live I complemented him on it.

Powerglove is ****ing sweet, the Metal Archives won't let them in the archives because they say they're a "cover band" which is bull****.

Anyways, enough of that. Their bassist is playing a Warwick which is also awesome. OMNISHRED FTW

..I feel the same way about the Mortal Kombat one, and the Power Rangers. Although, The Power Rangers Theme was already pretty metal.
#29
I love the intro the "Metal Kombat for the Mortal Man". It has such a black metal feel,

Lurve it.

Yes, I fail because I didn't listen to more than a minute of wanking nerds who worship Dragonfarce.

I steped on one of the starbursts but I almost caught Super Mario! My foot was all sticking to the ground, so during DragonForce's set, it was pretty bad for me.

And the 220 Under The Sea with STEEL DRUMS?!??! I came too

How the fuck do bands like this get signed, and paid to record albums, when there are countless hardworking bands, making real metal, financing everything themselves? What a load of shit.
Quote by Ultraussie
I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.
