Introducing… Planetoid

We are Planetoid
Our mission: to enslave the human race with our transmissions of face-melting rock. In the wake of an intergalactic war, the likes of which this universe has never seen, we have been cast backwards in time from the year 3032. Marooned on this accursed planet known as Earth, we have taken on the guise of the most highly respected and influential force this world has ever known: That of a rock & roll band.

Bludgeoning the drums with mechanical fury is Admiral Time: A cybernetic organism so technologically advanced he is able to bend the very fabric of the universe by force of will alone.
Incenerating the electric guitar is General Ovatus Talieah: A plant-based creature single-handedly responsible for the genocide of countless organisms throughout the known universes.
And finally, Locrius. Master of the bass-time continuum, preacher of Church of the Overdrive. A dread-goblin assassin turned demagogue, he is capable of shifting phase between dimensions and controlling the minds of his victims with but a word.
Together we have forged a ghastly tribunal of evil geniuses, war criminals, and abominations. The only other proof of our existence lies in the testimonials of the few who have survived our live performances. All who stand opposed will be destroyed.

Ovatus – Guitar, Locrius – Bass/Vocals, Admiral Time – drums

Yeah, the group shot looks a little silly. They look like something of a mix between Avatar and a bunch of cosplay kids at a sci-fi convention. So that’s their gimmick, so what. Gwar has one. IT works for them. Besides, their music means more. It’s a mix of hard rock with some prog and metal influences. There’s plenty of fuzz throughout too.
