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.

Machinae Supremacy is planning to release a fourth CD through Spinefarm in 2010. Further details are yet to be revealed.

    @CassieMosley they have a lot of intrumental stuff too like the Jet's 'N' Guns soundtrack for example. Also I think the vocals are best on Overworld followed by A View From The End of The World.

    V That's how everyone feels about this band initially. You'll learn to dig them, though.

    I recently discovered this band and I like it, but the vocals doesn't quite convince me

    They were already asking on facebook what style of packaging [the new album should get]: "Digisleeve / "mint pack" or Jewel Case? Go!" Sooo http://i.imgur.com/IcOqh.jpg

    Steve is probably (and arguably) Steve Barrett, one of the "famous" c64 game music composers. He composed some stuff that could probably inspire MaSu, like Super Hang-On (-> Super Steve), Bigfoot (-> Steve's Quest), Grand Prix Simulator II (-> Need for Steve). All these tunes can be found in HVSC (High Voltage SID Collection).
