Biography

Luleå, Sweden (2000 – present)

Machinae Supremacy is a metal band from Luleå, Sweden. Their musical style is based on the use of the Sidstation synthesizer, which incorporates the SID (Sound Interface Device) of the Commodore 64 home computer. The retro-electronic sound is blended with a metal sound to produce a special kind of “SID-metal” . Their album Redeemer (released March 18th, 2006 as an ‘Underground Edition’), was described by the band in an interview as everything DXM (Deus Ex Machinae, the debut album) wasn’t. It was re-released on November 8th, 2006 as a remixed version under Spinefarm Records.

On february 13th, 2008, the CD Overworld was released worldwide. It was the second CD released through Spinefarm and consists of 12 tracks, including one cover (‘’Gimme More’’ by Britney Spears). Compared to Deus Ex Machinae (MbD Records, a now defunct label) and Redeemer (Spinefarm), Overworld is a blend between the energetic SID as heard on DXM and the raw sound of Redeemer. Later in 2008 the song ‘’Overworld’’ was featured in a hockey-commercial on the Swedish television. Two songs, ‘’Bionic Commando Main Theme’’ and ‘’Area 88’’ were recorded and released on the band’s MySpace as well as on the official Bionic Commando (2009 video game). The ‘’Bionic Commando Main Theme’’ was also featured in a promotional video.

Bionic Commando isn’t the first game Machinae Supremacy got involved with. In 2004 they released the well-received and praised 28 track Jets’n’Guns Official Soundtrack, leveling up this side scrolling shooter. The album can be downloaded from their website.

    At first listen I hated the new album. I even ignored it until just few days ago. I don't know what I was thinking. Phantom Shadow is amazing! Some tracks on it are among their best.

    Beyond Good and Evil, Versus and Hubnester Rising are among the bands best songs. If you don't like these three songs I don't see how could you be a fan of the bands previous work anyway.

    Their Operation:Mindricrime videogame port works well. The songs aren't that good, but the whole concept gives it somewhat ingenious touch. I love it.

    The gig at St. Petersburg was awesome! 2nd time I see MaSU live, and I'm just cant wait for the next one. These guys just rocks, unbelievable and priceless expirience! Next time they visit Russia I'm totally gonna be there, no doubt. And, btw, new stuff from Phantom Shadow surprisingly sounds pretty damn good

    Couldn't get into the new one, sorry guys. Just too overstuffed with longer songs that don't go anywhere interesting. Not enough electronics either. "The Bigger They Are the Harder They Fall" rules divine but that is about it..

    And sure, you can argue that the west doesn't have the right to enforce the desire for happiness, compassion and empathy on the rest of the world, and to a certain extent I agree. Certainly to the point where I think it's wrong to invade other countries and overthrow their government. But I don't think it's wrong to apply political pressure in order to spread peaceful laws within other governments. And the reason for that is once again, because of the desired outcome of unity and prosperity. Not just for one country, but for all countries. For us as a species. And if we as a specias are to survive, then we NEED that unity and prosperity.

    It seems to me that the viewpoint that you're advocating for is absolute cultural relativism. Which is something that I do not ascribe to. Culture is like politics and other ideologies. It can be observed objectively and one can deduce what works best and what doesn't, based on certain desired outcomes. And if that desired outcome is happiness, empathy and compassion, then once again, human rights is what works best. And that should be the desired outcome, because that is what creates the most harmony within society. And the more harmony there is within a society, the more that society will flourish and prosper.
