Danimal Cannon

 Buffalo, New York, USA

One Nintendo Gameboy programmed with the intricacy of a swiss watch combined with virtuoso guitar playing. You may think the Gameboy is just a toy until you hear it sound bigger than most metal bands you've encountered. Catchy melodies combined with creative sound design never sounded this good.


Danimal Cannon roots are drawn from old video games and progressive metal. After cutting his teeth in some serious technical shred bands, Danimal turned his talents to the Nintendo Gameboy. The novelty of using a Gameboy to make music is enough to set Danimal Cannon apart from other bands with its distinct 8bit sound, but this is no novelty. In fact the sounds from such a small machine are staggeringly huge. Danimal goes to great lengths to coax organic melodies and emotive expressions from these cold lifeless square waves while exploiting the extreme precision that a machine would excel at. The result is difficult to classify, but it is undeniably catchy and impossibly grooving.
