Best Side Project St. Louis 2008 - Thor Axe

By day the kids who compose So Many Dynamos are unassuming indie rockers with thick, black-framed glasses and tight vintage T-shirts. By night they are the metal-worshipping, guitar-shredding demons behind Thor Axe. With more than a touch of irony, they rock songs that are entirely instrumental and sound like the speed-metal soundtrack to a Nintendo video game circa 1991. Each member of the lineup, which adds three to the standard Dynamos quartet, is given a silly title for his instrument (like "Lead Guitar Number 2"). They proceed to grind their way through an epic barrage of two-hand-tapping, erratic time-changing anthems. It's a perfect match for their double-entendre name, which the ever clever band members say is an homage "to the God of sweet riffs."

Thor Axe drinks the blood of starving children all over the world and regurgitates it through their instruments.
