ARMCANNON can be described in a very narrow manner as a video-game cover band from Buffalo, New York. However that would only be half the story. Armcannon plays original arrangements of a variety of nostalgic and (for lack of a better word) awesome music. Each piece is intricately arranged and have been described as "orchestral" on more than one occasion. But don't let that description fool you, as an Armcannon show is not a black tie affair. Besides brute musicianship the secondary factor in contrast to a serious or orchestral feel is something all too missing from most live performances, fun.
Part of the beauty of playing music from video games, is that the spectrum of styles and moods is as wide as they come. Armcannon performances cover styles that range from jazz and blues, to thrash and doom metal. You might be singing along with a pop tune or banging your head to some face melting solos all within 5 minutes. Armcannon has performed with death metal bands, jam bands, comedy troupes, and avant-garde musicians. The key factor is that there is something for EVERYONE in the crowd to enjoy at one point or another during the set.
