    Don't know if these guys have been mentioned before or if this the right section to post it in but here goes...

    Shockwave myspace

    It's basically Hardcore with Transformers samples and lyrics told from the perspective of Decepticons.

    I'm NOT a fan at all myself, don't dig that whole Hatebreed-style "hardcore" but I thought there might be one or two fans on here that may enjoy them.

    I love Hatebreed. Nothing like really, really angry POSITIVE music. Someone should tell Aaron Lewis from Staind its possible to write angry music even if you're rich as hell :)  Anyway, I've seen Shockwave's cd in stores but never picked it up. Seeing it always made me think "no, this will not be good".

    So is the myspace the first you've heard of them (music-wise)? What did you end up thinking?

    I found out about these guys about 6 years ago when I randomly found a CD in an FYE store at the mall, adorned with a Decepticon logo and numerous track titles named after Deceptions. I found a few tracks on LimeWire, but to be honest, that kind of music is just terrible in my opinion. I'd go on about that, but it isn't the point.

    Yeah, heard of them; think it's cool; no, not a fan.

    Another band people might enjoy and one I'm a BIG FAN of is Engorged!

    Engorged myspace

    If you grew up on things like Transformers, Inhumanoids, GIJoe, Horror and Metal then chances are you'll dig these guys. It's Death Metal/Grindcore with Cobra Commander and Destro style vokills with lyrics about some of the stuff I've just mentioned :D

    Seems like every six months someone makes a thread on these guys. I think they are brutally awful.

    Well, everyone has their own taste... and there's still some TF fans who have never heard of these bands, so...

    You dislike Engorged too? Wow, I would have thought being a George Romero/Zombie fan you would have liked something about them...

    Are you a fan of Metal?

    I was solely referring to Shockwave. Never heard of the other guys.

    My, don't these lot look attractive. :|

    I am an occasional fan of metal, but this was just annoying to listen to. However, I'll give them 1 point of coolness just for making songs about Transformers.
