The God Machine

2009-02-06 13:14:50 UTC
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 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
