Miss Machine

Miss Machine
(Relapse Records - 2004)

I can't tell you much about this album, coz I have no information where and when it's been recorded. The album opens with Panasonic Youth a complex track which is heavy, has progressive elements and is full of aggression. 11 tracks of futuristic heavy music. This is the follow-up of Calculating Infinity. As I don't know the predecessor I can't compare the albums. Next is Sunshine To Werewolf which starts slowly, then more mid-tempo with progressive parts and hateful vocals. The biography says this is for fans of System Of A Down, Meshuggah, Fantomas, Deftones and Nine Inch Nails... That might give an idea what to expect, but I can just recommend to check this album out, if you don't know their previous work or even if you are into one or more of the mentioned bands. This is no easy-listening stuff! You have to find out, if this is what you want! For fans I should mention that there is a limited deluxe edition of the CD - includes a DVD with live footage and a 'making of' of Miss Machine - available and for fans of vinyl a limited LP.
