ArcAttack: A Truly Electrifying Rock and Roll Band

What do you get when you mash together rock 'n roll, lightning-proof MIDI guitar, Faraday cage suit and Tesla coil?

Here's ArcAttack, a truly electrifying band:

Creators of the original Singing Tesla Coils, the crew of ArcAttack uses their high tech wizardry to generate a truly 'electrifying' performance. Two custom engineered hand built Tesla Coils throw out electrical arcs up to twelve feet long, each one acting as an instrument with a sound reminiscent of the early days of the synthesizer. [...]

During the show, the MC engages both the crowd and the Tesla Coils by walking through ½ Million Volt sparks wearing the relatively thin layer of his chain mail Faraday suit. This high power performance is unique in it's elements and energy, being at the same time mesmerizing and energetically thrilling.

They're alright. I saw then perform at Chattacon in Chattanooga. The frontman is a little too bland. He's got a fun costume, but the persona doesn't seem to fit. He sounds like an announcer for a sports event.The idea tesla coils were pretty awesome- though. They played a few songs, the coils did their lightening thing... It's a cool gimmick, definately.
