Default Your favorite bands with gimmicks?

I enjoy metal. A lot. And there are a few bands that have gimmicks to make themselves stick out. Or maybe they're not really a "gimmick" per se and they exist only to **** around and/or piss people off.

So, here are a few that I can think of.



Band: Alestorm
Gimmick: Pirate-themed power metal/folk metal
Song: Shipwrecked



Band: Hatebeak
Gimmick: African Grey parrot as the vocalist in a death metal band. Lots of puns.
Song: Bird Seeds of Vengeance



Band: Apocalyptica
Gimmick: Not really a gimmick, but.. they play metal on cellos. And they're friggin' amazing live.
Song: Stairway to Heaven




Soo.. anyone else want to share theirs? Doesn't matter what genre it is. I like all varieties of music.

@The Macho Man

This is some good stuff. I love me some grindcore.


Also, I was just reminded of a few bands...

Band: Larry David
Gimmick: Larry David-inspired grindcore
Song: Mopy Dick



Band: Macabre
Gimmick: "Murder" metal .. songs about serial killers.
Songs: Jeffrey Dahmer and the Chocolate Factory and The Cat Came Back



Band: Cattle Decapitation
Gimmick: Vegetarian death metal/goregrind band. Songs are generally about environmental issues or the treatment of animals at factory farms.
Song: Regret and the Grave


When I was a young stoner, I really liked Necro. Now? Not so much.. But, he did do a great song that stands up even post-stoner and post-adolescence: I Need Drugs


@L.Kizzle

I tried looking up P-Funk on YouTube but I'm not sure if I found the right band. Sounded pretty cool from what I heard though. Very funky.

Corn on Macabre. Not really a gimmick necessarily, just liked horror movies.

Not true. I think they're alright/decent. They have some great songs and some horribly shitty ones as well.

I dig it. The beginning sounded a lot like old black metal. But then it went a little more punk on me.

I have the same reaction to them. I love Duality, reminds me of an extreme System of a Down song.

Let me preface this by saying they do not use this as a gimmick, but an artistic choice for anonymity.

The Residents. They're an avant-garde multimedia group, who chose to wear masks and conceal their true identities. They just had their 40th anniversary and have over 60 albums.




... And yeah, they perform in the masks too.
