What happens when a ridiculously awesome metal band hears about MAGFest? Well, when that band loves video games as much as Psychostick, they ask to play.
And when they put it like that, then like this.
Well, what else do you do, but say get on the stage.
Most high school friends lose contact and drift apart when they graduate from high school. But what would happen if two crazy friends who loved metal went on to create a metal band? Not just any metal band, but a metal band infused with comedy?
The result is Psychostick: a comedic metal (self-proclaimed "humorcore") band with a reputation for having hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics, and a high energy performance. The music successfully crosses a level of heaviness and aggression found in bands such as Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed with the wit and humor of The Bloodhound Gang, Tenacious D, and Weird Al Yankovic.
It all started when Rob Kersey and Josh Key decided to take the crazy sense of humor that only two best friends can share, and throw it onto a canvas of heavy music. "I noticed that we had a different view of metal than other metalheads... we found certain things about it funny."
