Recorded throughout the second half of 2009, Mechanical Drive is a dark and haunting album inspired by science-fiction films and novels. Almost every track is made up of several layers of atmospheric synths, usually build around multiple drum loops and throbbing basslines with catchy riffs overlaid.
The mood goes from dark, brooding and often menacing ("Robot Law", "Dark Waters", "Ghost in the Machine"…) to heavy, dynamic rhythms and driving beats ("Mechanical Drive", "Ascension/Aftershock"), all culminating in the closing track, "New World", which manages to encompass all of The Light Dreams' styles, fusing them together into an epic finalé.
