The God Machine was a rock band active in the first half of the 1990s. Its members were all from San Diego, California, U.S., but they all lived and performed mainly in the United Kingdom. Subsequently, they were one of the few foreign acts to play at the short-lived Repre club in the Obecni dum in Prague The band consisted of three members, Robin Proper-Sheppard (born Gary Sheppard) (guitar/vocals), Jimmy Fernandez (bass) and Ronald Austin (drums), and they first performed officially under the name The God Machine in 1991. They released an EP, Purity with the record label Eve, and were later given contracts with the label Fiction. They released two albums in their career, both with their trademark dark and industrial-sounding alternative rock, before Jimmy Fernandez suddenly died from a cancerous brain tumour. Robin went on to form The Flower Shop Recordings label, and bands Sophia and The May Queens. Their second album, One Last Laugh in a Place of Dying, was recognized by Alternative Press as one of the “90 greatest albums of the 90s” (#88) in their December 1998 issue. Their San Diego incarnation was called Society Line and also featured guitarist Albert Amman, who left the band before its move to London. ----------(The God Machine has... and always remain a classic.)---------- Artist - The God Machine Album - Scenes From the Second Storey ( * * * * * )Release Date - 1993 Genre - Alternative-metal, Post-metal Tracklist 01 Dream Machine 5:24 02 She Said 4:40 03 The Blind Man 5:58 04 I've Seen the Man 2:39 05 The Desert Song 5:12 06 Home 5:20 07 It's All Over 5:55 08 Temptation 5:13 09 Out 5:08 10 Ego 3:34 11 Seven 16:38 The God Machine - Scenes From the Second Storey Password - ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Artist - The God Machine Album - One Last Laugh in a Place of Dying Release Date - 1994 Genre - Alternative-metal, Post-metal Tracklist 01 The Tremolo Song 4:02 02 Mama 2:52 03 Alone 4:48 4 In Bad Dreams 3:08 05 Painless 3:58 06 The Love Song 3:55 07 The Life Song 4:41 08 The Devil Song 5:04 09 The Hunter 7:57 10 Evol 4:06 11 The Train Song 4:26 12 The Flower Song 5:41 13 Boy by the Roadside 5:50 14 The Sunday Song 8:34 The God Machine - One Last Laugh in a Place of Dying Password - ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recommendations: Generation Of Vipers - Dead Circle ISIS Tides Tid - Bortom Inom Envy -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’


Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
