Captured! By Robots
2 kick ass robots, 1 stupid human. Brutal pummeling music. End of story.
But you wanna read more stupid crap? Ok, idiot human.
C!BR has been touring the world since 1997, playing thousands of dive bars for millions of drunk humans.
In 1996, Jay Vance made the robots because he was extremely unlikeable, and wanted to play in a band after all his past human bands hated him. He got to work. Shortly after, GTRBOT666 and DRMBOT 0110 were born. After a horrible accident involving many drugs and a chemical spill, the Bots became self aware and captured the human, now renamed JBOT. It was decided that they would travel the country, rocking out while bent on world domination and humiliating the masked and chained idiotic human in front of his human peers.
As well, JBOT’s mask was removed, after 15 years of captivity removal of the mask serves to show how ugly and disgusting the human JBOT really is.
The Bots and JBOT’s relationship has changed, now they are much more united in hating humanity. Stockholm syndrome? Maybe… Or maybe you all just suck really really bad.
C!BR’s newly found united aggression towards humanity has been channeled into fast n loud music, designed to deafen and destroy, to pound and pummel, breaking your bones with brutal tones.
Bad Acid Trip
Not much is known about Flattbush except that the anti-imperialism, anti-capitalism, pro-workers, Pinoy-centric grindcore band was formed by blue-collar immigrant brothers Enrico and Arman Maniago (vocals and bass, respectively) shortly after they moved from the Philippines to Southern California in 1990.
They have gone on to blare their agenda on stages alongside the likes of thrash masters Napalm Death, Death Angel, and Fear Factory; the legendary Japanese art-noise combo from Japan Melt Banana; and genre-tweaking weirdos Faith No More and Mike Patton.
While members have enlisted with fervor and mysteriously vanished like soldiers joining a cause only to be scarred by the truth, Flattbush’s polarizing lyrics, machine-gunned riffs, and seismic blast beats over the decades have remained as thoroughly hardcore as its politics have been hardline to the left: Smash the tentacles of capitalism! Seize the time stolen by political overlords! Power to the people in the slam pit!
Faith No More’s Billy Gould, who released the band’s previous albums on his Kool Arrow label, has returned to executive produce the band’s self-released fourth album, Strategic Offensive. Contributors to the band’s 2003 debut Bradley Walther (guitars) and Ramon Banda (drums) have also jumped back into the bunker to contribute to harsh cuts such as “Stop Lumad Killings,” “Extra Judicial Killings,” and “Trained to Kill.” The blood-and-guts-soaked cuts are as brutal as the topics—politics, corruption, money, and Uncle Sam—are evil.
The humble-but-famously-loud Flattbush plays for change, not money, and can be made to vanish overnight. Jump in the movement now before it is too late.
This is a band, not like any other band, ok well it might be, but who cares I mean really?
We're just 3 dudes smashing on these things called instruments and sounds come out.
This band is literally just pure fun and that's what we are doing, we are having fun.
So like us, don't, we like what we are doing and plus we still love you.
