Arnold Schwarzenegger


I’m a colossal fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Doesn’t matter if it’s Terminator, smoking cigars, “pumping up” and comparing it to sex, I don’t care. I’m there. I’m also a metal enthusiast to an unhealthy degree, so needless to say when the two were put together, I nearly lost my mind. Austrian Death Machine is a thrash metal tribute band to all things Arnold Schwarzenegger. A Tim Lambesis side project, Austrian Death Machine shares many stylistic similarities with As I Lay Dying, since Tim wrote and recorded vocals, guitars, bass, and drums. The icing on the cake, though, is the sound of Arnold’s voice making numerous references to his classic films such as, “Hey Sully … remember when I told you I’d kill you last?? … I lied.” If you don’t recognize that quote from Commando, I don’t know what you’re doing with your life.
