Friends, right up front I am going to admit I am extremely biased when it comes to the music of The Cybertronic Spree – having said that though I honestly feel they knocked this cover of Led Zeppelin‘s popular “Immigrant Song” right out of the park. After all, how can you top a live performance of that classic tune – you do it while dressed as characters from The Transformers. Now I grant you they might not have actually called down the Bifrost with their performance – but I’m pretty sure from the reaction of the audience – they at least caused Heimdall to pause from his duties and take notice.
Back in the day when I was writing for the Retroist, I shared more than a few videos from The Cybertronic Spree. One of those reasons happens to be I am still a big fan of The Transformers – and the band has been known to cover some of the songs from 1986’s Transformers: The Movie. On the other hand, there is quite simply something amazing about this band from Toronto deciding to play on stage in full costumes as Hot Rod, Arcee, Rumble, Shockwave, Unicron, Bumblebee, the Quintesson, and Soundwave.
My apologies to the almighty Devastator, what I meant to say was it’s quite awesome to see this group of transforming robots get together, putting aside their differences and rocking out for all of us Humans.
So after producing their own songs and covering the likes of “Dare“, “Instruments of Destruction“, “Hunger“, “The Touch“, and more – how could The Cybertronic Spree raise the bar of awesomeness just a little higher? By covering the 1970 classic “Immigrant Song” from Led Zeppelin – the selection of which might have had a little to do with the rise in the popularity of the song thanks to 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.
