SegaShiro tipped me off to The Blast Processors, a relatively new Sega video game cover band from Toronto, Canada. They have a 4 song EP available for preview and download at their Bandcamp site.
From their site:
The Blast Processors are a SEGA Video Game Cover Band based in Toronto, Canada. They claim to have traveled from the Year 2101 AD where a terrible war, precipitated by the console wars of the 1990’s, has ravaged mankind. Having missed their time modulation by some decades, they resolved to rock.
My favorite part is that they actually took on names of various Sega hardware for their stage names.
Hopefully we’ll see more from The Blast Processors in the future.
While we’re on the subject of Sega video game cover bands, I guess I should mention the heavy metal outfit MegaDriver from Brazil.They’ve more recently opened themselves up to non-Sega covers, but have released multiple albums based upon Sega games like Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Shinobi, Sonic, and Streets of Rage.
