"While the tongue-in-cheek film references raise a smile, what shines through is Lambesis' incredible musical ability."
Personnel: Ahhnold (vocals); Tim Lambesis (guitars, bass guitar, drums).
Austrian Death Machine was formed as a side project by the singer Tim Lambesis of the Christian metal band As I Lay Dying. It spoofs both the metal genre and the acting career of Austria's most recognizable export Arnold Schwarzenegger, in songs whose titles recall some of the Governator's most memorable onscreen moments, such as "I Am a Cybernetic Organism.," "Who Is Your Daddy, and What Does He Do?" and "It's Not a Tumor." While perhaps not as much of a laugh riot as watching the real thing in action, TOTAL BRUTAL's over-the-top performances often provide a genre not known for light-heartedness with a refreshing air of hilarity.
