If Black Sabbath and Rage Against the Machine were to have a baby — don't ask how two bands can have a baby, just go with it — the result would be Buffalo oddity Super Killer Robots. The foursome produces some serious 1970's riffing while using that RATM lyrical delivery and throwing in some metal style singing. While the music is great, the best part may be the subject matter of the songs. Some of the group's more popular tunes are named after pop culture icons — "Ric Flair" is so epic I won't attempt to describe it — and there's some humor mixed in as well. If you're looking for an outside the box show, this is it.
Super Killer Robots play with Armed with Valor, Setiva, and BML on Saturday, January 24, at The Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 8 p.m. $5-$8. themontagemusichall.com.
