Swedish “alternative metal” band MACHINAE SUPREMACY will release its new album, “Rise Of A Digital Nation”, on October 19 via Spinefarm Records. According to a press release, the CD “echoes the musical simplicity of [2008’s] ‘Overworld’ and faithfully reflects the issues and state of a Generation Online in its lyrics.” The album was recorded in MACHINAE SUPREMACY‘s own studio in Luleå, Sweden, with additional recording at the 4Sound Studio in Stockholm. It was mastered by Henkka Niemistö at Chartmakers in Finland.
MACHINAE SUPREMACY‘s video game-inspired sounds and melodies, masterful guitar work and unique vocal style has set the band apart from the mainstream mass of generic rock and metal since their beginning in 2000. Metal Hammer calls MACHINAE SUPREMACY “one of the most interesting bands of the current era” in their review of the U.K.-only best-of collection “The Beat of Our Decay” from 2011.
Since the release of its fourth studio album, “A View From The End of The World”, MACHINAE SUPREMACY has toured Europe with CHILDREN OF BODOM and ENSIFERUM, and signed with Spinefarm for three more albums.
MACHINAE SUPREMACY is currently working on the original soundtracks for two upcoming video game titles, among them “Project Giana”, the great grandchild of the now quarter-century old cult hit “The Great Giana Sisters”, and planning for upcoming tours in Russia and northern Europe.
