Biography

Moscow, Russian Federation (2002 – 2009)

Mechanical Poet is a Russian (new albums) and / (old albums) band singing in English formed in Moscow in 2002. The band releases concept albums with original orchestral arrangments and electronic instruments.

Mechanical Poet was founded in 2002 as a studio project by ex-members of Russian avantgarde act Glazemaker Lex Plotnikoff,
Tom Tokmakoff and Sebastian Trifonoff.

For a few years the band known as Glazemaker was working on creating a “sound” of their own, till they evolved a sound which was a mixture between melodic metal with progressive metal riffs and symphonic metal orchestrations using electronic instruments.

In 2003 Sebastian Trifonoff left the band and was soon replaced by Эпидемия’s frontman Max Samosvat. With the new singer the band released its first EP, Handmade Essence. After the EP the band received several offers from various music companies, and finally signed a record deal with Italian label Aural Music

In 2004 the debut album Woodland Prattlers, was released. Though the album had sold well, the union of Plotnikoff, Tokmakoff and Samosvat split in 2005 due to artistic disagreements.

In 2006 the Mechanical Poet returned with a new line-up: singer Jerry Lenin (ex-Tarakany, Lady’s Man), guitar player Lex Plotnikoff, drummer Vladimir Ermakoff (also Black Obelisk) and bass player

    Слушаю со времён Creepy Tales for Fteaky Children. Жаль, что этот музыкальный проект забросили. До сих пор раз в пару месяцев какой-нибудь альбом переслушиваю

    Check out also Hattifatteners, that's Plotnikoff's new age/ambient project based on Moomin Troll books by Tove Jansen.

    "Prattlers" weren't really in my taste. Gret album, but I need specific atmosphere for it. Later albums were much more "mine", especially "Who did it...".

    Their music is extremely suited for the Holiday season... especially the first few albums.

    Каждую очень начинаю сходить с ума от любви к ним. Это лучшее, что когда-либо было на отечественной метал-сцене.

    MP is over for now. But they're back as Luna Damien, with stuff that sounds much like MP. Check it out, if you liked Poet.
