Biography

Supermachiner originally began as a collection of 4 track recordings by J. Bannon (Converge) in 1994. The music was much different than his known vocal work in Converge, having more in common with influences Swans, Bauhaus, and others. Though continually evolving through home recordings the project remained nameless for years. Along with the help of good friend Ryan Parker (Daltonic, Black Spot, The Jaded Salingers), the project was brought back to life in the winter of 1998. With lyrical content built around the rise of technology and the death of the individual, the project took a conceptual turn. Eventually taking on the name “Supermachiner”, a play on the term “Supermachinder”, the compound word for Japanese Giant Robot Toys from the 1970’s.

The two entered the studio with Kurt Ballou (Converge) in the winter of 1999. During these sessions, Ballou also contributed a great deal to the material. The finished album titled “Rise Of The Great Machine” was released by the defunct Undecided label in 2000 (now out of print). After the album release, future projects were planned but never materialized.

Nearing a decade later Deathwish brings you “Rust”, the complete 30 track 2XCD Supermachiner collection. “Rust” features the sought after “Rise of the Great Machine” tracks, as well as four track ghosts of forgotten songs, and other unique audio experiments. All of it showcasing the artistic spirit that made Supermachiner such a unique animal for the time.

    *Если Converge можно с большой натяжкой назвать арт-кором, то для Supermachiner другое определение просто неприменимо* :D арт-кором?это что за покемон?арт-кор,звучит не по-поцнски как-то.автору по ебалу ногой.слегка,но для верности.
