Question: How can music be totally metal without ever shredding a single guitar? Answer: When it happens to be this incredible robotic drum and bass set above!

The futuristic music video straight out of science fiction posted on Vimeo by K X shows a live performance "using an automated drum kit and other percussion, playing together with a selection of vintage and new analog synthesizers."

While we'd recommend watching the entire, mesmerizing routine, for those who lack the patience, the drum and bass really kicks into high gear starting at about 1:18.
