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.

    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.

    You are indeed correct about what you say. Here's the thing, though, human rights is like democracy. Out of all the things tried, it's the one that works the best. If one's goal is to live in a society of freedom where all people are as happy as possible, then human rights is the way to go. And I think that that's what most people want, even if they may object to various aspects of it, due to whatever that may cloud their mind -- such as religion.

    After Hitler it was difficult to promote those ideas as a pure racial segregation so instead of White, Yellow and Black now we have Civilization, Barbarians and Savages and the fact that Barbarians are better than Savages and Civilization is better than Barbarians is accepted as an axiom. Thus Civilization in its own eyes acquires the right to ‘civilize’ Barbarians and Savages, part of which all this ‘human rights’ idea is. There’s a wonderful book on this topic by Professor John M. Hobson called ‘The Eurocentric Conception of World Politics’.

    Human rights is an exclusive Western concept which has nothing to do with how other nations perceive ‘human’ or ‘rights’. South America, Asia, Africa, Islamic world don’t want ‘human rights’. Still this concept is being continuously forced on everyone on this planet. It’s not up to 10% to decide how the other 90% should live but that’s exactly what happens (same is true for the so-called Anglo-Saxon democracy by the way). Truth is, this is just another disguise for Western colonialism which was previously called The White Man's Burden.

    Surely you can justify that last remark?

    My explanation here would look messed up anyway because it's like explaining rocket engine design which you don't understand much yourself with sticks (also it's difficult to talk this topic in English to me because I don't know the right terms names). I've spent almost a year even approaching this whole concept via other works and interpretations and even now I just get the basics of it. He explained it much better and I'm not the best person to translate his ideas so, just read if you're interested. He's called the Prince of Philosophers for a reason after all. P.S. Human rights is thousand times more of an ignorant superstition than faith or any other pre-modern concept.

    And "forsake what 'human' means"? How so? And what does that even mean?

    Lowest point of existence? Seems rather iffy, seeing as we are only now transcending beyond our ignorant superstitions and prejudices towards those that are different. Human rights are at an all time high, and are progressing more and more throughout the world. The world is becoming an easier place to live, as more countries develop. Sure, there are hardships today, and sure there are problems that are exclusive to modern society and technology, but to say that we're hitting an all time low point in our existence... sorry, but I don't see it. Sounds like technophobic fearmongering to me...

    He explains this with the disintegration of Western Logos, the first beginning of philosophy that started with Pre-Socratic era, Heraclitus, Plato and Aristotle and ended with Nietzsche (he calls Nietzsche the last philosopher). He tries to uncover what was hidden below that first beginning (introducing the concept of Dasein) and then suggests to start building The Other Beginning in which we should answer the central question of philosophy, the question about being, in another way, not like it was done in the first beginning because it led us to disaster represented in the triumph of Gestell, technology.
