Experimental progressive metal band MASCHINE from Brighton are turning heads and there’s good reason. Highly energetic, creative sound from such a bright new band brings great hope for the UK scene.
Fresh material, that brings an edge and heartiness to Prog that feels new, that feels expansive and yet not mimicking other great names like FRANCIS DUNNER, DREAM THEATER and PAIN OF SALVATION. While all these artists are clearly an influence, MASCHINE have a distinct feel that becomes instantly recognisable.
Initialised in the year 2008 by vocalist/guitarist Luke Machin, the rest of the band consists of Elliott Fuller on guitar, Dan Mash on bass, as well as James Stewart on drums and Marie-Eve de Gaultier on keyboards/vocals. Together they carve an instantly listenable sound, which sometimes can difficult with prog, as a tendency towards the “out there” can make it a little but hard to swallow. Not with MASCHINE! These boys are not only catering to big fans of the genre, but are also the perfect introduction to Progressive music.
To prove that these guys are worth their weight, they are actually signed to the German Progressive Rock Label Inside Out, which means that MASCHINE are amongst artists such as, DEVIN TOWNSEND, KINGS X, STEVE HACKETT, TRANSATLANTIC and SYMPHONY X MASCHINE released their debut album Rubidium in July 2013 and with incredible sounds it’s no surprise the feedback as so positive that their new release, Naturalis (out on Friday the 18th of November,) is awaited with hot anticipation. So, with the incredible combination of psychedelic, heavy, melodic, funky tunes and so much more, with this stellar sound you have to give MASCHINE a listen!
