BandRockMetal

Droids Attack's sound is comparable to the style of Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Clutch, Helmet, etc... The band puts on a high energy, rhythmically charged show, complete with a robot mascot. Alcoholic beverage sales hit their peak during a Droids set. No shit. www.droidsattack.com

Biography

"Fatal/Error is another example of a band taking the basics of good rock n roll and running with it. It's been done a million times before, but Droids Attack still manage to leave their mark. This one's going in the recommended pile."

-John Pegoraro, StonerRock.com

"Fatal Error, the new album from Madison WI based Droids Attack, is currently in my CD player and melting my face off... If this album can't get your ass moving, then your ass is dead."

-Scot Shoemaker, pro-rock.com

"Madison's Droids Attack practically define the power-trio sound: One guitar is more then enough when it is as fat and full as Brad Van's."

- Scott Gordon, The Onion

"Droids Attack plays song with driving! It's like blow my face!"

- Akira Naito, Colourfast (Japan)
